As Texas Goes...: How the Lone Star State Hijacked the American Agenda
Anthropological.New York Times columnist Gail Collins approached her study of Texas the way an anthropologist would study an unfamiliar culture in a foreign country. She observed the behavior of the people there, mainly politicians, and drew sweeping conclusions, which she presents in a book titled, As Texas Goes…: How the Lone Star State Hijacked the American Agenda. In the current divisive political environment, we can expect that liberals will love this book and conservatives will hate it. Citizens of any political leaning will find her writing lively, and the stories she tells about the public policies in Texas are engaging to read. This book is unlikely to change any minds, but it’s great political writing and I enjoyed reading it.
