Abstract:

"Rudy Giuliani's admirably flinty response to the horrifying events of 9/11 has made him a national hero, positioning him for big things to come in the nation's political life, as governor of New York, in Hillary Rodham Clinton's coveted US Senate seat or, his ultimate quest, the White House. But the outpouring of praise for his performance after September 11,2001, has obscured many uncomfortable facts about Giuliani, one of the most polarizing figures in the history or a great and frenetic city."

"This book collects the original essays and reporting of some of New York's most perceptive authors and reporters on Giuliani's two terms as mayor. The writers have few illusions about Rudy's turbulent reign, offering an informative and fascinating corrective to today's simplistic celebration of "America's Mayor.""--Jacket.
