This book shows how a machine political, local Democratic organization in Brooklyn failed to make the transition necessary to survive in modern urban political life. Political organizations do not live in a sociological vacuum. They must struggle for survival in a highly competitive human environment. The story of the Madison Club tells how the ethnic, religious, racial and generational transitions affect decisions, group cohesion and the success of political organizations at all levels.
