Steffens’ expose of the corruption within a traditional city government contributed to the public’s acceptance of other alternatives such as Governor La Follette’s Wisconsin Plan. It also may have given the public an incentive for wanting to have a voice in politics - something fueled by their desire to end the political corruption associated with the close knit circles of political bosses.

Book by
  • It's a classic!

  • very enlightening

  • Heard so much about it for years. Finally read it. Some chapters better than others. Basic lesson summed up more succintly by Mencken: People get the government they deserve., all too often, bad government. That's the shame of it.

  • I wanted to read The Shame of Our Cities after it was mentioned in The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin. I will limit my comments to the quality of the delivered product rather than the literary content as the Kindle version is barely readable. The text may have been scanned from an existing hardcopy and apparently no attempt was made to clean it up or otherwise edit it. This version should never have been offered for sale anywhere. Be warned.

  • My download is unreadable. Totally so. Someone at the helm was not looking at the mess that downloads.

    I sure hope that someone at Amazon pays attention to these reviews and takes another try at getting out a readable copy for our Kindles.

  • Beware of this kindle edition if you've got an older Kindle, like me. This is a scan of the original book, so there's no enlarging the text. Haven't tried reading it on the iPad app, yet, however. I think I can enlarge there, with good graphics. Still, for the price, who's complaining?
