"A pungent and precise portrait of how big-city politics work...Muckraking at its best, a remorseless book that bites and tears." --The New York Times

Publishers Weekly

First published in 1971 when the late Daley was mayor of Chicago, this classic ``provides a detailed and, for some, eye-opening account of Daley's rise to absolute control of the Chicago Democratic political machine,'' said PW , finding the book ``sardonic and sometimes hilarious reading.''
