In the dark days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Rudy Giuliani established himself as "America's mayor." This first post-9/11 account of his career shows how 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, Fred 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.
