"I’m all for business. I’m all for
government. I just don’t want them to be the same thing,"
says Robert Bryce, taking on the state of Texas and its enormous
political influence over American life, from oil and gas to
business to foreign policy. Bryce traces the network of Texas
"cronies" that he says helped bring Lyndon Johnson and both Bushes
to power in the White House.
