9780312084448: Plunkitt of Tammany Hall: A Series of Very Plain Talks on Very Practical Politics (The Bedford Series in History and Culture)

Since its publication in 1905, Plunkitt of Tammany Hall has given generations of students a passport into the world of controversy, conflict, corruption, and color that surrounded urban political machines at their zenith. The full text of William Riordon's book is supported here by nine primary documents that place both the book and its subject into context.

About the Author:

Terrence J. McDonald is professor of history at the University of Michigan. His book, The Parameters of Urban Fiscal Policy: Socioeconomic Change and Political Culture in San Francisco, 1860 to 1906, won the 1987 Allan M. Sharlin Memorial Award of the Social Science History Association and the 1988 J. S. Holliday Award from the California Historical Society. He is a member of the board of editors of the Journal of Urban History and Studies in American Political development, and he has published essays in those journals as well as in Social History, Historical Methods, the History Teacher, and Reviews in American History. His research on George Washington Plunkitt is part of an ongoing project on the image of the urban political machine and American liberalism entitled "Inventing Urban Politics: The City and the State in American Political Development, 1880-1980."

Review:

"This is a model of how teaching materials should be crafted. It is the clearest, most comprehensive, and most interesting discussion of Plunkitt that I have ever read."

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Around the turn of the century George Washington Plunkett challenged the reformers of American city politics who blamed the ills of large cities on political organizations or machines such as New York City s Tammany Hall. Plunkett proposed that the honest graft of these machines was the oil that kept these machines and government in motion. His honest graft included exploiting privilege information such as buying public land earmarked for development and selling it again at huge personal profit. This book combines historical narrative with historical documents. Terrence J.
