The prince of the city : Giuliani, New York and the genius of American life by Frederick F Siegel( Book )

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( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 183 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

The vaudeville conjuring act by Frederick F Siegel( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction to the dissertation deals with prevaudeville conjuring and with the emergence of vaudeville. The body of the dissertation traces the history of six major types of vaudeville conjuring acts. All of them had their roots in the magic traditions of earlier eras, but none existed in quite the same way until vaudeville appeared. The six major categories of vaudeville conjuring acts are: (1) The generalist "flash" act, in which an assortment of large, colorful tricks were performed in quick succession. (2) The theme act, organized around one trick or one type of trick. (3) Comedy and burlesque acts, which mixed ancient conjuring traditions with vaudeville comedy. (4) The ethnic act, based on European immigrant or Asian stereotypes. (5) The mutilation act, in which women were magically divided into pieces. (6) The para-conjuring act, which included escape artists, mind readers, spiritualists, or hypnotists. The evolution of each of these types and the most famous practitioners in each category are examined, using performance reconstructions and historical data
