With humor and the biting insight of a native, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Looming Tower explores the history, culture, and politics of Texas, while holding the stereotypes up for rigorous scrutiny.

God Save Texas is a journey through the most controversial state in America. It is a red state in the heart of Trumpland that hasn't elected a Democrat to a statewide office in more than twenty years; but it is also a state in which minorities already form a majority (including the largest number of Muslims). The cities are blue and among the most diverse in the nation. Oil is still king but Texas now leads California in technology exports. The Texas economic model of low taxes and minimal regulation has produced extraordinary growth but also striking income disparities. Texas looks a lot like the America that Donald Trump wants to create. And Wright's profound portrait of the state not only reflects our country back as it is, but as it was and as it might be.

    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.

    As an amateur historian and native Texan, I was excited to pick up this book. I feel like this book missed the mark in a couple of ways. One, it didn’t give the reader many new perspectives or insights about Texas history I didn’t already know, other than the author’s political leanings. Which brings me to my second problem with this work. I totally understand the author’s opinion will inevitably be representative in his or her work, but this is next level bias. The author is clearly left of the political center, which doesn’t normally bother me, but the persistent attack on all things conservative, became tired and ultimately distracting to the content.
