Robert Bryce (au). This fascinating book explains how Texas’ business has become America’s business & how Texas’ politics are now America’s politics. Discusses the days of the oil boom, through the rise & reign of Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson, to the current administration of George W. Bush, this book illuminates how Texas turned its vast energy resources into political power, & how a small group of Texas corporations, lawyers, & politicians have used that power to protect & defend their own economic interests. From Brown & Root’s war profiteering in LBJ’s Vietnam to Halliburton’s insider deals in G. W. Bush’s Iraq, here is a terrifying tale of incestuous relationships between the plundering class in Houston & Dallas & the governing class in Washington. Photos.
