Frederick examines Wallace in the context of his state and its people. Where other studies have focused on George Wallace's career as a national figure, this work provides a detailed, comprehensive and analytical study of Wallace's political life that emphasizes his activities and their impact within the state of Alabama. Frederick examines the development of policy during the Wallace administrations and documents Wallace's relationship with his constituents in ways that go beyond racial politics. He also analyzes the connections between Wallace's career and Alabamians' understanding of their history, sense of morality, and class system. ""Stand up for Alabama"" was the governor's campaign slogan.
