Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2006
Duration: 14 hours 27 minutes
In the first post-9/11 account of the career of the man who established himself as "America's Mayor" in the dark days after America was attacked, Fred Siegel examines Rudy Giuliani's successes in New York and how his eight years in office prepared him to rise to the occasion. 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.
