John O. Norquist (View Bio)
Hardcover: Addison Wesley, 1998; Paperback: Perseus, 1999.
"A free-market manifesto on saving the nation's cities mostly from the federal government. Norquist, now serving his third term as the mayor of Milwaukee, has what he plainly regards as good and true reasons for disliking the effects of big-government spending on his city.... much zest.... Libertarians will likely applaud Norquist's debut as an author." — Kirkus Reviews
