From the Dust Jacket: "On a July afternoon in 1987, when Jesse Jackson stopped in Montgomery, Alabama, to pay his respects to former governor and presidential candidate George Wallace, a profound sense of irony surrounded the event -- a sense of history having come full circle. That scene -- the civil rights leader sitting down with the former segregationist -- is the point of departure for Stephan Lesher's masterful GEORGE WALLACE: AMERICAN POPULIST. Wallace first captured the national spotlight at the University of Alabama, personally obstructing a federal segregation order. As the governor used his resultant notoriety to argue for 'getting the government off the backs of the people,' to berate the Washington establishment and the hypocrisy of the 'limousine liberals,' and to voice the frustrations of the middle class in the face of academic and governmental elites, his critique was obscured by the racist taint, and what would become his true political legacy was overshadowed. For unbeknownst to his more urbane critics, George Wallace was setting the national political agenda for the remainder of this century. In electing Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and even Clinton, Lesher argues, the American people have voted for Wallace's ideas in gentrified form in every election since 1968. For good or ill, Wallace has not only become mainstream, it was he who diverted the nation's course. As such, in Lesher's view, he emerges as the most important loser in the history of presidential politics. In telling the Wallace story, Lesher brings to life what C. Vann Woodward calls the 'burden of Southern history,' placing Wallace and the sentiments he exploited in the context of Reconstruction and the long struggle, not just of black Americans, but of the white Southern poor as well. By tracing Wallace's rise from the rural poverty of Depression-era Alabama, Lesher allows us to see the whole, complex picture of a small-town politician who had always stood up for 'ordinary folks' regardless of color… GEORGE WALLACE recreates the drama of Montgomery, of Selma, of Birmingham… from the vantage point of those resisting change. It shows us the dark side of ambition, and the darker reality of American politics…". Signed by George Wallace. First Printing of the First Edition. Hardcover. Fine condition/Fine dust jacket. 8vo. xx, 587pp., Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, 1994
