Rudy Giuliani's admirably flinty response to the horrifying events of 9/11 made him a national hero, positioning him for big things to come -- a run at the highest office -- in the nation's political life. However, the outpouring of praise for his performance after that grim day has obscured many uncomfortable facts about Giuliani, one of the most polarizing figures in the history of the Big Apple. America's Mayor, America's President? collects original articles and reporting by some of New York's most perceptive authors and reporters on Giuliani's two terms as mayor. This revised and expanded edition includes such luminaries as Michael Powell on Rudy and race; Greg Sargent on his presidential chances and what kind of leader he would be; and Richie Steier discussing the messy Bernard Kerik affair. These, and nine other articles, have few illusions about Giuliani's turbulent reign, offering an informative and entertaining corrective to today's simplistic celebration of this complex, troubling figure.
