 Originally released in 1987, The Mayors: The Chicago Political Tradition gathered some of the finest minds in political thought to provide shrewd analysis of Chicago's mayors and their administrations. Twenty-five years later, this fourth edition continues to illuminate the careers of some of Chicago's most respected, forceful, and even notorious mayors, leaders whose lives were often as vibrant and eclectic as the city they served. In addition to chapters on the individual mayors-including a new chapter on Rahm Emanuel, enhanced by an expert explanation of the current state of the city's budget by Laurence Msall, president of the Civic Federation-this new edition offers an insightful overview of the Chicago mayoral tradition throughout the city's history; rankings of the mayors evaluated on their leadership and political qualities; an appendix of Chicago's mayors and their years of service; and additional updated materials. Chicago's mayoral history is one of corruption and reform, scandal and ambition. This well-researched volume, more relevant than ever twenty-five years after its first edition, presents an intriguing and informative glimpse into the fascinating lives and legacies of Chicago's most influential leaders
