Failed State: Dysfunction and Corruption in an American Statehouse By Seymour P. Lachman and Robert Polner
Failed State shines a light on the dark corners of New York’s legislature and points the way to much-needed reform. Drawing on his experiences both in and out of state government, former New York State senator Seymour P. Lachman reveals and explores Albany’s hush-hush, top-down processes, illuminating the hidden, secretive corners where the state assembly and state senate conduct the people’s business and spend public money.
Robert Polner, a public affairs officer for New York University, co-authored “The Man Who Saved New York: Hugh Carey and the Great Fiscal Crisis of 1975.” He edited “America’s Mayor, America’s President: The Strange Career of Rudy Giuliani.” Mr. Polner formerly reported for New York and New Jersey daily newspapers.
