Publisher Description

William Magear Tweed, America's most corrupt politician ever, ruled New York City in the 1860s and 1870s.  He rigged the votes, bribed the legislature, and stole on a massive scale.  But even in prison, even after escaping, being recaptured, and confessing it all, people still loved and admired him.  Tweed's is a stunning tale of pride, fall, and redemption.


"[An] excelling new biography of the Boss ... told in a crisp, clear way." --Pete Hamill, New York Times book Review
