AS TEXAS GOES... How the Lone Star State Hijacked the American Agenda

by | Read by Gail Collins

History • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

The author traces the Lone Star state’s history, from the genesis of its ardent states’ rights positions to the issues that shape its influence on the country. Schools, sex education, global warming, and business development are all covered. Collins delivers her own work. Her narration works in that it has the exact amount of emotion—an often incredulous, at times snarky, tone—with no campy Texas twangs. The book’s importance can be summed into one prediction: At some point in our lifetimes, 10 percent of the U.S. workforce will be Texans-- citizens who grew up with a politicized or clouded education. Collins lays out the facts—and verbally rolls her eyes in the narration. M.B. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2012]
