”Municipal Government of the City of New York. Abby S. Baker and Abby H. Ware. 1916.
The object of this book is to help school pupils to ‘know their own city.’ The chapters take up each administrative department in turn, describing its development and the manner in which it is managed at the present time. The authors have combined history and civics in the text and endeavored to give some idea of the evolution of municipal departments and methods. The present edition is a revision of the earlier text brought up to date (1916) with the assistance of departmental executives.”
