    Texas may well be America’s most controversial state. Evangelicals dominate the halls of power, millions of its people live in poverty, and its death row is the busiest in the country. Skeptical outsiders have found much to be offended by in the state’s politics and attitude, and yet, according to journalist and Texan Erica Grieder, the United States has a great deal to learn from Texas. In Big, Hot, Cheap, and Right, Grieder traces the political history of a state that was always larger than life. From its rowdy beginnings, Texas has combined a long-standing suspicion of government intrusion with a passion for business.

    What did you love best about Big, Hot, Cheap, and Right?

    I moved to Texas just in the last year and this book gave me a fantastic overview of the state, its politics, economics and unique sensibilities. The book also offers fascinating historical context that amplified my understanding of contemporary issues.
