Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: James D. Squires began his newspaper career at the Nashville Tennessean in 1962, and later served as Washington bureau chief for the Chicago Tribune and as editor of the Orlando Sentinel and the Chicago Tribune. In 1992 he served as media adviser for Ross Perot's presidential campaign. His next book is entitled Mink Slide.
