Reviews

"Anyone with time to read only one book on Folsom (that is, almost everybody) ought to turn to "Big Mules and Brachheads"."--"Journal of American History" "Grafton and Permaloff will give us much more than just a book about Folsom. They probe beneath the surface of political conflict, uncovering forces at work behind the scenes."--"Alabama Magazine" "There is much about this book that is praiseworthy, particularly Grafton and Permaloff's prodigious research effort and their concerned quest for objectivity."--"Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science" "Grafton and Permaloff are unafraid to draw conclusions. Their book is also more detailed, both about Folsom and his times."--"Gulf Coast Historical Review" "Grafton and Permaloff have mastered the political biography with all of its potential pitfalls, and added a new dimension. The authors have used the political career of one man to peel back, layer by layer, the politics of an entire state."--"Publius" "[Grafton and Permaloff's] book explores nearly every facet of Folsom's personality and uses statistics of federal and state funding to examine his claims of improving roads and education in the state."--Montgomery "Journal-Advertiser" Grafton and Permaloff are unafraid to draw conclusions.
