Synopsis: All Alabama elections are colorful, but the 1986 gubernatorial contest may trump them all for its sheer strangeness. With the retirement of an aging and ill George Wallace, both the issues and candidates contending for the office were able to set the course of Alabama politics for generations to follow. This volume is certain to be a valuable work for any political scientist, especially those with an interest in Alabama or southern politics.
