The prince of the city : Giuliani, New York and the genius of American life by Frederick F Siegel ( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this first post-9/11 account of the career of the man who established himself as "America's Mayor" in those dark days, Fred Siegel shows how Rudy Giuliani's successes in New York--restoring law and order, cutting taxes and radically reducing the welfare rolls--demonstrated that Gotham was indeed "governable" (a matter of doubt until his election) and that our major cities might again become vibrant and dynamic places to live after thirty years of middle-class flight. Someone who has worked with Giuliani as well as studied him, Siegel describes this colorful figure as an "immoderate centrist," who, like the city he came to embody, evokes contradictory emotions--for some, a ruthless autocrat; for others, a heroic figure who took on the vested interests that had dragged the city down. Siegel regards Guiliani as a shrewd tactician and artist of the possible who could have stepped out of Machiavelli's pages.--From publisher description

The prince of the city Giuliani, New York, and the genius of American life by Frederick F Siegel ( )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
