But few of us know the role his home state plays in his presidency, and in our country. In this dual biography of man and state, Michael Lind confronts the chief crises of Bushs presidency-the economy, the Middle East, and religious fundamentalism-and traces their roots back to Texas, a state, Lind argues, that yields salient clues to the future course of our country. Lind, an iconoclastic and brilliant political observer, provides a scathing exposé of the political and cultural legacy of Texas, which tells us all we need to know-and fear-about George W. Bush.
