The Nation City : Why Mayors Are Now Running the World
Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago (2011-2019)

Thursday, November 19, 2020 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Time Zone: America/Chicago
Local Time: Thursday, November 19, 2020 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

At a time of anxiety about the effectiveness of our national government, Rahm Emanuel provides a clear vision, for both progressives and centrists, of how to get things done in America today–a bracing, optimistic vision of America’s future from one of our most experienced and original political minds.

In The Nation City, Rahm Emanuel, former two-term mayor of Chicago and White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, offers a firsthand account of how cities, rather than the federal government, stand at the center of innovation and effective governance. Drawing on his own experiences in Chicago, and on his relationships with other mayors around America, Emanuel provides dozens of examples to show how cities are improving education, infrastructure, job conditions, and environmental policy at a local level.

Rahm Emanuel was the fifty-fifth mayor of Chicago, serving two terms from 2011-2019. He previously served as President Obama’s chief of staff, President Clinton’s senior advisor, and as chairman of both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Democratic Caucus. He is a contributor to ABC News and lives in Chicago.
