Alabama in the Twentieth Century Press Reviews

This book ought to be required reading in the sense that no one should be allowed to vote, or even talk about Alabama sports, religion, politics, taxation or laws, until he has read it. - Don Noble, Tuscaloosa News Alabama in the Twentieth Century lays bare how this state works, and no one who reads it will ever again wonder why things here are the way they are - nor doubt that they can be made better. - John Sledge, Mobile Register I do so admire Wayne Flynt. Here is a man with a gift for making long ago and the recent past come alive. He writes with an unclouded clarity, and makes writing history the work of an artist; I savor the delights of Alabama in the Twentieth Century. - Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird
