Description of The Power Broker by Robert A. Caro PDF
“The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York” is a great book for anyone who has interests in history or that of New York City. Robert A. Caro is the author of this book. This is one of those books that sticks with you. As someone who has lived in New York City for many years, in a neighbourhood Moses wanted to tear down to build a freeway, The Power Broker is a fascinating insight into the city in its current form. The reader will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for New York City and State because Moses was instrumental in much of the urban and park planning. If that was not enough, Robert Caro is a gifted and skilled writer and biographer.
Moses is an interesting and important figure in New York history, but Caro’s writing elevates him to an almost Machiavellian character. The sentences, pages, and chapters are beautifully written and are immensely gripping. This is both an academic study of a man. Caro has admitted that he wishes he made this book longer. His editors at the time thought nobody would read such a long book so they cut several chapters, including Moses’s battles with Jane Jacobs. Despite that, the book is great. For the battle with Jacobs, turn to the many other books and documentaries about her. She is worth your time.
