1 - 2 weeks availability


In both chronological and topical organization, "Alabama: The History of a Deep South State" examines traditional subjects such as politics, military events, economics, and social movements. It discusses the roles of individual leaders, such as Chief Tascaluza, Andrew Jackson, Rosa Parks, Helen Keller, and Wernher von Braun, as well as cultural icons like Hank Williams, Tallulah Bankhead, Hank Aaron, and Zelda Fitzgerald. But both general readers and careful students of Alabama history will discover less well-known people and issues treated in sections devoted to race, Indians, women, and the environment. Attention is given to health, education, organized labor, civil rights, and cultural elements - from literature to sports - that have affected the lives of Alabamians for more than two centuries.
