In the dark days after the 9-11 terrorist attacks, Rudy Giuliani established himself as "America's Mayor". In this first post-9-11 account of his career, Fred Siegel shows how Rudy Giuliani's successes in New York set a promising example for the rejuvenation of our major cities. As one who has worked with him as well as studied him, Siegel regards Giuliani as a shrewd tactician and artist of the possible, who could have stepped out of the pages of Machiavelli's The Prince. A self-promoting, self-absorbed man, the mayor made his enormous ego and tribal ethos serve the city's well-being, promoting ideals that transcended New York's ethnic politics and business-as-usual. The prince of the city is at once a fascinating character study, a history of New York over the last forty years, and a classic inquiry into the issue of how cities thrive or die.
