Over the last twenty years, Rahm Emanuel has built a reputation as a hard-nosed and highly effective fundraiser, campaigner, and political infighter. Nicknamed "Rahmbo," he has been praised as a genius by his allies and decried as ruthless by his opponents; his legendarily profane tactics have entered the public consciousness and even inspired their own parody Twitter account.

The Rise of Rahm traces Emanuel's political ascent, from his early, rocky days in the Clinton White House to his victory as Chicago's 55th mayor in 2011. Along the way, Emanuel amassed a fortune in investment banking and orchestrated the 2006 landslide Democratic congressional victory. Emanuel served as President Obama's chief of staff for two years before returning to his hometown of Chicago to make a historic run for mayor in a campaign that was dogged by questions about Emanuel's residency and his national political connections.

The Rise of Rahm is an entertaining, fast-paced chronicle charting the events and the relationships that made Rahm Rahm. The collection is drawn from the award-winning Chicago Tribune's coverage of Emanuel throughout the years, from the reporters who have followed him from early in his professional political career. The ebook concludes with "Year One," the Tribune's extensive series on Mayor Emanuel's first year in office.
