Politics and Pasta
How I Prosecuted Mobsters, Rebuilt A Dying City, Dined With Sinatra, Spent Five Years in A Federally Funded Gated Community, and Lived to Tell the TaleBook - 2011 | 1st ed.
Buddy Cianci spent almost three decades as mayor of Providence before leaving for an enforced vacation in a federally funded gated community. He helped turn Providence from a dying industrial city into one of the most desirable places to live in America, and he did it by playing the game of hardball politics as well as it has ever been played. He's been called many things in his career: "America's Most Innovative Mayor," a "colorful character," and a convicted felon--but no one has ever called him shy. This is the behind-the-locked-door story of how politics in America really works.--From publisher description.
