Summary
"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 Profiles in Power offers concise biographies of fourteen twentieth-century Texans who wielded significant political power and influence in Washington, D.C. First published in 1993 by Harlan Davidson, it has been revised and updated with new chapters on John Nance Garner and Henry Gonzalez and expanded chapters on Lyndon Johnson, Barbara Jordan, Ralph Yarborough, Jim Wright, and John Tower. Demonstrating the validity of a biographical approach to history, the book as a whole covers all the major political issues of the twentieth century, as well as the pivotal role of Texans in defining the national agenda."--Publisher's description
