The Prince of the City

The Prince of the City
by Fred Siegel
(Encounter Books, 2007)


Fred Siegel

Fred Siegel is a senior fellow of the Manhattan Institute's Center for State and Local Leadership, a City Journal contributing editor, and an expert on market-friendly public-policy solutions for urban governance. For many years he made his intellectual home at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City. Before joining the faculty of Cooper Union, Mr. Siegel was a visiting professor of modern American history at the University of Paris. A former fellow at The Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, he is currently scholar-in-residence at Saint Francis College in Brooklyn.

In the 1990s, Mr. Siegel was a major intellectual force in the revitalization of declining American cities. As a senior adviser to Rudolph Giuliani's 1993 mayoral campaign, he wrote one of Mr. Giuliani's path-breaking speeches on the quality of life. He was also one of the original editors of City Journal.

Mr. Siegel is author of The Prince of the City: Giuliani, New York and the Genius of American Life (Encounter Books 2005), which received a cover review in The New York Times Book Review. His previous book, The Future Once Happened Here: New York, D.C., L.A. and the Fate of America's Big Cities (Encounter Books 1997), was named by Peter Jennings as one of the 100 most important books about the United States in the 20th century. His articles and commentary frequently appear in publications including The Claremont Review of Books, The New Republic, The Atlantic, The Public Interest, Commentary, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Weekly Standard, and the Washington Post. Mr. Siegel, who is working on a new book tentatively titled The Inner Life of American Liberalism, lives with his wife, Jan Rosenberg, in Brooklyn, New York.
