About this title


Describes Barry's political odyssey from rural Mississippi, through the civil rights movement and his tenure as mayor, to his arrest on multiple drug charges, and assesses the implications of his fall from grace.

From Library Journal:

In this chronicle of the life of former Washington, D.C., mayor Barry, journalist Agronsky relies heavily on newspaper accounts and trial transcripts to examine in comprehensive detail Barry's arrest on drug charges and his subsequent trial. While he adds little new information on or insights into these well-publicized aspects of Barry's life, Agronsky presents a far more interesting discussion of Barry's earlier years as a civil rights activist, particularly his work as a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Surprisingly, Agronsky devotes relatively little attention to Barry's career as mayor of the nation's capital. A more thorough investigation of Barry's relationships with city council members, local administrators, and federal officials would have strengthened the book. Of interest to politically informed general readers.
