Everything you need to understand or teach Boss by Mike Royko.
Boss, Richard J. Daley of Chicago by Mike Royko is the life story of Mayor Richard Daley, tracing his modest beginnings on the South Side of Chicago in the Bridgeport neighborhood to his rise as a powerful politician. Daley was born in 1902 and was the only child of Michael and Lillian Daley. It was a quiet household which some attributed later to Richard's difficulty in communicating. He didn't have siblings to talk to early in life. Even after his very public life, he often had a hard time expressing himself. Daley was a shy, retiring child who was not a standout in academics nor in sports. However, even in his early years, some schoolmates saw leadership qualities and an elusive charisma that both proved to be crucial later in his career. Most children from Bridgeport did not wind up in college. ... View more of the Boss: Richard J. Daley of Chicago Summary
