    The first half focuses on the decline of 'boss' politics in the city, while the second half details the reformers (complete with an appendix of biographical data), their efforts, and their triumphs and losses. I am a bit disappointed that there was no discussion of the astoundingly racist and unconstitutional city ordinances instituted under Mayor Mahool, nor of protective covenants, etc. This strikes me as a rather strange aspect to leave out of a book that otherwise attempts to address issues of African-American disenfranchisement-- and particularly one published in 1968, when Baltimore's racial tensions were really coming to a head.
