In a rich, astute memoir, the former editor of the Chicago Tribune vividly recounts the character-rich story of his family's role in Nashville's postwar political machine and the rise of urban politics. The Secrets of the Hopwell Box weaves a robust tale of Boss Crump's machine, the street-side justice, and the defense of Jimmy Hoffa by one of Nashville's favored--and doomed--sons.
