Great intro into Chicago politics

by TimmyJ (WorldCat user published about 3 weeks ago) Excellent Permalink

I enjoyed reading this book because it reveals some very basic but important aspects about the city of Chicago and how race, power, and politics played a role during the administration of the late, great Mayor Harold Washington. Powerful stuff.
