The author obviously knows what he's talking about. He was a friend and confidant of the late mayor, but he was also a student of political science and history, and it shows. He takes us right inside the mayor's office, and right into the heart of the struggle for power after the election of Chicago's first black mayor. Much of what he experienced, and wrote about, prefigures the issues confronted by the Clinton administation -- the same obstructive, nihilistic, blind opposition. But in Harold Washington's case, it was met with good humor and political skill. Makes me want to read more about this subject.
