Abstract:

"Three Men in a Room is an insider's expose of how one of the country's largest and most powerful governments - with the fourth-largest budget, behind only the federal government's, California's, and Texas's - has become a model of corrupt, inefficient, and undemocratic governance. Seymour Lachman ran the New York City Board of Education, taught political science and education, and was then elected to New York's legislature. What he found when he arrived in the halls of the State Senate was a Potemkin village of government, where legislators vote on bills they haven't read during legislative sessions they haven't attended. After five terms, Lachman left his safe seat in disgust, and has now written this sharp, mordant, and impassioned call for reform."--BOOK JACKET.
