About the book:

This is the story of the late Richard J. Daley, politician and self-promoter extraordinaire, from his inauspicious youth on Chicagos South Side through his rapid climb to the seat of power as mayor and boss of the Democratic Party machine. A bare-all account of Daleys cardinal sins as well as his milestone achievements, this scathing work by Chicago journalist Mike Royko brings to life the most powerful political figure of his time: his laissez-faire policy toward corruption, his unique brand of public relations, and the widespread influence that earned him the epithet of king maker. The politician, the machine, the cityRoyko reveals all with witty insight and unwavering honesty, in this incredible portrait of the last of the backroom Caesars. This new edition includes an Introduction in which the author reflects on Daleys death and the future of Chicago.
