Editorial Reviews

When Ed Koch died, in February 2013, New York City lost what some have called its greatest mayor since Fiorello La Guardia. Koch was a three-term mayor, a Democrat who oversaw tax cuts, expansion in housing for the poor, and handled the controversial AIDS crisis in the 1980s. After his life in public office, he became a vigorous - even hawkish - supporter of the state of Israel.
In this audiobook recording of a conversation with correspondent Budd Mishkin, which took place in 2008, Koch discusses The Koch Papers: My Fight Against Anti-Semitism, a collection of articles on that subject that seeks a clear-eyed understanding of anti-semitism in our time, particularly in New York City. Koch’s observations are trenchant, and his humor intact.
