About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"Filled with the color, drama and language of every day politics, A Stripe of Tammany's Tiger is a refreshingly lively and direct account of New York City Clubhouse politics from the 1900's through the 1960's. This very human and personal memoir of a politician who knew or worked directly with such men as Edward J. Ahearn, John F. Ahearn, Herbert H. Lehman, William O'Dwyer, Newbold Morris, Vincent R. Impellitteri, Carmine De Sapio, W. Averell Harriman, Robert F. Wagner Senior and Junior, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John Lindsay, and Abraham Beame among others, is not only entertaining reading, but a most valuable reference and study for anyone directly involved in politics today or anyone studying the political process in American society."
