black titles spine; "Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago.The man, his city and his political machine - the inside story of the last of the backroom Caesars. You can't know how America works until you read 'BOSS' - the best book ever written about an American city. And perhaps it will stand as the best book ever written about the American condition at this time. It comes at you from the saloons and neighbourhoods, the police stations and political back rooms. It is about lies and viciousness, about the worship of cement and the hatred toward blacks, about a troubling cowardice that hides behind religion and patriotism while the poor get clubbed and killed. It is written with a deep understanding of the evil and terrible power of mediocrity ... I know of no place where it will not be read and quoted and kept and read again. A devastating expose of the corruption of big-city politics; a true horror story of our times."; previous owner's name on front endpaper; including index - 207 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
