About The Book
Everyone knows that President George W. Bush is from Texas. 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 Bush’s 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.Widely praised as an iconoclastic and brilliant political observer, Lind, a fifth generation Texan, chronicles the ethnic clash that produced modern Texas, the well-known plundering of the state’s natural resources at the hands of its elites, and finally the deep strain of “Old Testament religiosity” which, having originated in Texas, now reaches all over the globe in the form of Bush’s foreign policy.In the tradition of Gary Wills’s Reagan’s America, Made in Texas provides a wholly original cultural history that should change the way we understand not just our president, but our country.
