Back-room politicians, deals, bosses, big-city machines, and corruption are traditionally identified with New York City and "Boss" Tweed. But in this revealing story of the city from the 1830s through 1870, Leo Herskowitz challenges the stereotyped view of "Boss" Tweed created by the famous Nast cartoon and New York Times denunciations and reinforced by historians and political scientists.
