9780060093891: Rudy Giuliani: Emperor of the City

During his reign as the mayor of New York, the controversial Giuliani has been called many names. But after September 11, 2001, New York had new words to descibe him.

In this riveting and updating edition, political reporter Andrew Kirtzman tells the story of Giuliani's tireless mission to cleanup, control, shape, and -- most recently -- heal New York City.

About the Author:

Andrew Kirtzman has written a biography of Rudy Giuliani, covered more than a dozen national political campaigns for print and television, and hosted two of New York's most widely watched public affairs shows. In September 1999, Brill's Content magazine named Kirtzman one of New York's 10 Most Influential Journalists. In 2003, his week-in-review feature "Kirtzman's Column" won an Emmy Award for outstanding political programming.

Review:

"As a New Yorker and a political columnist who rarely blurbs books, I must congratulate Andrew Kirtzman for pulling off the near impossible by writing a (gasp!) fair-minded study of Rudy Giuliani, brimming with insider anecdotes and telling insights. At a time when Giuliani has become the most polarizing political figure north of the White House, Kirtzman both praises his lasting accomplishments, while also deftly detailing the insularity, the bunker mentality and the tragically lost promise of the mayor's second term. Sure the tabloids can endlessly speculate on the precise nature of Giuliani's relationship with Cristyne Lategano, but Kirtzman delivers the goods on a far more vital issue-the former communications director's insidious influence within City Hall." -- Walter Shapiro, political columnist, USA Today

"Kirtzman has produced a kaleidoscope of insight into the bright, shifting, political mind of Rudy Giuliani. As with the well-told tale of any emperor, this one has the fabled rise, the pinnacle reached, the settling into stasis, the intrigues at court, the hints of mania - and, of course, the omnipotent dragon lady." -- Tish Durkin, political reporter, New York Observer

"Notable...eye-opening." -- The Boston Globe
