God Save Texas
is a journey through the most controversial state in America. It is a red state, but the cities are blue and among the most diverse in the nation. Oil is still king, but Texas now leads California in technology exports. Low taxes and minimal regulation have produced extraordinary growth, but also striking income disparities. Texas looks a lot like the America that Donald Trump wants to create.

Bringing together the historical and the contemporary, the political and the personal, Texas native Lawrence Wright gives us a colorful, wide-ranging portrait of a state that not only reflects our country as it is, but as it may become—and shows how the battle for Texas’s soul encompasses us all.

Excellent

Excellent book. I could not put it down.

Not a book for snowflakes or the bubble crowd

I suspect the poor reviews here bought the book because they liked the title. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to find Mr. Wright’s other work and references on the net. He is a capable author with little patience for the Jade Helm arm of the Republican Party.

Wright tried to be introspective and optimistic in his evaluation of Texas being a reflection of the larger US and their strengths, problems and future. If you don’t know much about Texas, like politics and are interested in the directions of things, this is for you.

God save Texas

Obviously a liberals view of Texas. I only hope the author moves out of Texas and his book keeps other liberals from moving here. Native Texans continue to be proud of their heritage.
