Editorial Reviews


"In an era of hyper-partisanship it is good to reflect on an effort to find a middle ground and actually get some things accomplished in Washington. Glen Browder and his 'Blue Dogs' were one of the bright spots in an otherwise dismal picture that included party politics that almost brought government to a standstill. This excellent study of Dr. Browder's career reminds us what was accomplished and what might be done if we sent more like him to Congress." Dr. Harvey Jackson III, Eminent Scholar in History, Jacksonville State University

"In this well-written biography, Browder emerges as a complex political leader during a critical period of Alabama and American history. Anyone who wants to understand state or national politics will find it a splendid read." Dr. Wayne Flynt, Distinguished University Professor Emeritus, Auburn University History Department

"Glen Browder's biography presents a very rare combination of insights stemming from the former Congressman's record as an academic and as an elected official at both state and national levels. The volume by Certain and Browder may prove especially useful for those young adults who contemplate entry into the arena of electoral politics, but wish to balance the need to win on election day with the desire to serve a public interest by addressing deeply-rooted social ills." Dr. Jess Brown, Professor of Political Science at Athens State University

"There is no better guide to the South's racial history than Glen Browder." --Dr. Larry Sabato, Director, University of Virginia Center for Politics
