Mayor 1%: Rahm Emanuel and the Rise of Chicago's 99% by Kari Lydersen
Mayor 1%: Rahm Emanuel and the Rise of Chicago’s 99% by Kari Lydersen

Chicago writer Kari Lydersen offers an outsider's portrait of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

In Mayor 1%, veteran journalist Kari Lydersen takes a close look at Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and his true agenda.

How did a city long dominated by a notorious Democratic Machine become a national battleground in the right-wing war against the public sector?

With deep Wall Street ties from his investment banking years and a combative political style honed in Congress and the Clinton and Obama administrations, Emanuel is among a rising class of rock-star mayors promising to remake American cities.

 

 

But his private-sector approach has sidelined and alienated many who feel they are not part of Emanuel’s vision for a new Chicago—and it has inspired a powerful group of activists and community members to unite in defense of their beloved city.
