"This book is a highly personal glimpse into the world of precinct, district, and county politics. It deals with several stripes of the Tammany Tiger and brings into close focus some of the most forceful background figures in New York City's political framework. Primarily, it is a forty-year panorama of Tammany practices and personalities." from A Stripe of Tammany's Tiger
In this fascinating book, first published in 1966, Louis Eisenstein, a Tammany precinct captain from Manhattan s Lower East Side, sets out with his coauthor Elliot Rosenberg to chronicle the evolution or rather devolution of New York City politics through the first seven decades of the twentieth century. Eisenstein imbues his lively narrative with an overarching theme: that personal interactions and good faith between those at all levels of power are of paramount importance both for sustained political success and for competent municipal administration.
