MEDIA REVIEWS

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 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"


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 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. Their book is also more detailed, both about Folsom and his times.--"Gulf Coast Historical Review"
