Overview


For 20 years, one of the most dynamic figures and accomplished leaders in American politics had never even been elected to a position of executive power. Then in early 2011, Rahm Emanuel won the election to become the mayor of Chicago, supplanting Richard M. Daley, who had been firmly entrenched in the role before Emanuel even emerged on the national political scene. Comprised of two decades of Chicago Tribune articles on the man who said "You never want a crisis to go to waste", The Rise of Rahm is a fast-paced retrospective on the bold, authoritative, and above-all-else effective methods of Rahm Emanuel.

The Rise of Rahm tracks the meteoric ascent of Emanuel from his effective direction of Bill Clinton's 1992 primary and presidential campaigns through the Tribune's recent five-part series on Emanuel's first year in office as the mayor of Chicago. In between, The Rise of Rahm explores his up-and-down years as a staffer in the Clinton White House, Emanuel's own 2002 congressional run as a representative from Chicago, his exemplarily masterful orchestration of the 2006 Democratic sweep of Congress, his oft-contentious tenure as President Barack Obama's chief of staff, as well as his successful mayoral campaign. Along the way, stories are revealed of Emanuel's infamous mailed fish and lost finger, as well as countless examples of Emanuel as a ruthless tactician, a focused strategist, an on-message adviser, and a spiteful competitor, but above all else, as a gifted power-broker.

In this collection, stories of Emanuel's aggressive enthusiasm and profane style are presented next to continuous proof of his ability to build partnerships between major, high-profile players in the worlds of politics and business. This book truly is a fascinating glimpse into the inner world of the man behind nearly every national Democratic power-swing since the early 90s, as written by the group of journalists who have been following Emanuel since his start. For anyone curious in studying where the Chicago mayor has been and where he will be going in his current tenure, The Rise of Rahm is a gripping and telling read on Rahm Emanuel's political ascendance.
