Pressestimmen

From reviews of the first edition: The color and drama of local politics frequently has obscured the fact that throughout the twentieth century Texans have played a significant role in national politics. This collection of essays ... [provides] an impressive introduction to the Texans who have provided national leadership in this century." Southwestern Historical Quarterly "For both college history instructors and political science faculty members seeking a readable book on recent history and governmental affairs, or general readers curious about the rise of Texas and Texans to a level of disproportionate influence in national and international circles, Profiles in Power should be a welcome publication... It achieves admirably a philosophically balanced presentation of political life stories." Western Historical Quarterly
