Amidst the turbulent political and social conditions of a metropolis in the making, Boss Tweed was, according to Mr. Mandelbaum, the right man at the right time -- "a master communicator" who "united the elements in a divided society." This is a cogent case study in the democratization of American society. With a new preface by the author.
