Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688020577, Hardcover)During Fiorello LaGuardia's 12 years as mayor of New York City, he provided what may have been the best reform government in American municipal history. He used his office to rescue a city burdened by the Depression and WW II.
Lawrence Elliott's biography of this mercurial son of Italian immigrants reveals the mayor as a hot-tempered and colorful man, but one of character and courage.
"This lively biography, rich in anecdote, not only profiles LaGuardia himself, but also provides a fascinating look at the times in which he lived." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
