Rate this:
Tracing the development of public policy in America, Wallenstein focuses on the southern variant of the national pattern and demonstrates the impact of the Civil War on public policy in Georgia. He relates political power to policy objectives as he draws connections among economic conditions, political conflict, and the social consequences of government actions. In investigating taxes, railroads, schools, and racial regulations, he reveals that prewar, wartime, and postwar patterns varied in significant ways.
