Contents: Preface --
Introduction : that's when I got sore --
Part I : 1882-1914 Early years --
I loathe the professional politician ; I want to be somebody and do something really worthwhile ; Interlude : portrait of a corrupt metropolis ; More I got to know about lawyers and their ethics, the less respect I had for them --
Part II : 1912-1921 Congressman and warrior --
I joined the Republican party because I could not stomach Tammany Hall --
You just can't control him ; Don't blame me if you don't like the way I vote ; I can't take the buzzard off, but I can fly the son of a gun! ; When I make a mistake, it's a beaut ; I can outdemagogue the best of demagogues --
Part III : 1922-1933 Return to Congress, champion of the people --
I would rather be right than regular ; I am doomed to live in a hopeless minority for most of my legislative days ; Asbestos will not hold the statements I shall make on the floor of the House! ; I would hang a banker who stole from the people ; Capitalist, if he does not invest his money, cannot eat it --
Part IV : 1934-1943 Great mayor --
They didn't elect me for my looks ; I'm the majority of this administration! ; Only ultimate cure for them is dynamite ; I call a bluff every time I see one! ; I don't want any lawyer sitting around to decide what's in the city's best interest! ; This is your friend La Guardia speaking --
Part V : 1943-1947 Last years --
You can't stay in office indefinitely.
Responsibility: Alyn Brodsky.
