|Responsibility:||Vincent J. Cannato.|
At the height of his popularity, leading politicians from both parties, including Nelson Rockefeller and Bobby Kennedy, feared Lindsay's growing popularity. Some even pegged him for the White House. After his second term as mayor, however, Lindsay left office fatigued and disillusioned, his political career devoid of its early promise, a man rendered as one pundit described him an "exile" in his own city.
In his insightful book, The Ungovernable City, Vincent Cannato details what happened to Lindsay and to New York during these tumultuous years."--BOOK JACKET.
