reviewed Plunkitt of Tammany Hall: A Series of Very Plain Talks on Very Practical Politics on
Great insight into how politics really works--a glimpse behind closed doors that is as relevant today as it was eighty years ago--delivered by a fascinating, quirky, larger-than-life character who is unafraid to put forth his practical, homespun advice. Plunkitt is refreshingly frank in an age of double-talk and spin.

From the back cover --
"Plunkett provides in this irrestible little volume a wonderfully frank and funny analysis of the Tammany machine and the ways to succeed in big-city politics."

Chapters include: Honest Graft and Dishonest Graft, Reformers Only Mornin' Glories, Tammany Leaders Not Bookworms and Bosses Preserve the Nation.
