Abstract:

This is the first and foremost a brilliant multidimensional portrait of a man-an extraordinary man who, denied power within the normal framework of the democratic process, stepped outside that framework to grasp power sufficient to shape a great city and hold sway over the very texture of millions of lives.

Note:

da wmblackburn (Utente WorldCat su 2007-02-02)

This is a landmark book of American urban history and well deserving of its reputation. However, given the reputation of its author, Robert A. Caro, for exhaustive and thorough research, there are two glaring factual errors which most college sophomore political science or history majors would not make. On page 284 he refers to Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. as Eleanor Roosevelt's "cousin-in-law," suggesting a realtionship to TR, Jr. by virtue of her marriage to FDR. In fact she and TR, Jr. were first cousins, as their fathers were brothers. TR, Jr.and FDR were distant 6th cousins. More egregiously, at page 322, in discussing the 1932 Democratic National Convention, he describes Texan John Nance Garner, the Party's ultimate Vice Presidential nominee, as the "Governor" of Texas, an office he never held. Garner was Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
