AUTHOR

Simpson, Dick

SUMMARY

In Rogues, Rebels, and Rubber Stamps, Dick Simpson challenges and recasts current theories of Regime Politics as he chronicles the dramatic story of the civic wars in the Chicago City Council since the civil war. At the same time, the author provides a window into the broader struggle for democracy and justice.Simpson points out that through analyzing city council floor fights, battles at the ballot box, and street demonstrations, one can begin to see certain patterns of conflict emerge. These patterns demonstrate that before the Great Depression, fragmented city councils were dominant. The author also discusses how since the Democrats seized control of Chicago government after the Great Depression, Rubber Stamp City Councils have been predominant, although they have been punctuated by brief eras of council wars and chaos. This book is important for anyone wanting to understand the nature of these battles as a guideline for America's future, and is well suited for courses in urban politics, affairs and history. Rogues, Rebels, and Rubber Stampsreceived an Honorable Mention for the 2001 Society of Midland Authors Book Award for Adult Non-Fiction.Simpson, Dick is the author of 'Rogues, Rebels, and Rubberstamps The Politics of the Chicago City Council, from 1863 to the Present', published 2001 under ISBN 9780813397634 and ISBN 0813397634.
