Summary, etc.:
"Wayne Barrett was a reporter for the Village Voice for close to 40 years, and was the first to report on the inside deals, backroom favors, and outright scams that fueled the career of Donald J. Trump. Barrett had the goods on Trump long before Trump had an inkling to be president-back when he was just a New York character, and a New York crook. This book is the first edited, annotated volume of Barrett's investigative pieces, revealing the shady dealings of New York power players from Donald Trump to Ed Koch to Rudy Giuliani. The book also provides a master class in investigative journalism. Barrett's craft and rigor were unmatched, and he taught generations of journalists how to connect the dots and find the patterns in the facts. In an age when journalism is under threat, Barrett's work reminds us of the possibility of journalism in the public interest, and the importance of journalists as detectives for the people, always holding the powerful to account"-- Provided by publisher.
Author Notes

Wayne Barrett (1945-2017) was a celebrated investigative journalist. He spent much of his 40-year reporting career at the Village Voice, where he became, in the words of the Washington Post, "dreaded if not loathed" by public officials for his relentless exposure of such major political figures as Ed Koch, Rudy Giuliani, and Donald Trump. After his departure from the Village Voice, he became a fellow at Type Media Center, then known as The Nation Institute. He is the author of four books, including Trump: The Greatest Show on Earth (1992) and Rudy: An Investigative Biography of Rudolph Giuliani (2000).

Eileen Markey is an assistant professor of journalism at Lehman College of the City University of New York and a veteran NYC policy reporter who learned the power of facts and the joy of digging for them from Village Voice muckraker Wayne Barrett. She has written for, among others, The Daily Beast, The New Republic, The New York Times, City Limits, The Daily News, New York Magazine, WNYC New York Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal and The Village Voice. She's lectured widely on the role of religion in radical social movements. Markey is increasingly interested in archives and the role of public memory in shaping allegiances.
