Synopsis

This engaging account of political initiation, campaigns, and service in elected offices of increasing responsibility will interest and entertain a wide range of readers. Barbara Ackermann's experience as Mayor of Cambridge, Massachusetts, offers important lessons for the political volunteer and insights for the student of politics. It is a rich resource for teachers of government, urban politics, and public administration. Through the author's eyes we see the issues, the problems, and the people that make a modern city so vital and diverse a place, and its leadership and management so delicate and complex an undertaking.This lively portrait of a politician's experiences as a legislative leader in a vibrant, inner city will both entertain and inform all students of government. It will interest anyone who has toyed with the idea of running for elective office; any volunteer who has diligently worked to elect a local official; and anyone who has ever had an argument with city hall. The book will also be of value to teachers of government, urban politics, and public administration courses.
