Follow the Money is a harrowing, behind-the-scenes account of how a cabal of powerful, tightly connected Texas Republicans have quietly hijacked American politics for their own personal gain. It tells the story of how the Texas political system came to be hijacked by a sophisticated, well-funded group of conservative Republicans who, once they were able to elevate George W. Bush to the presidency, then went about applying their hardball, high-dollar politicking to Washington, D.C. This book tells who did it, how they did it, and what they did. In Follow the Money, John Anderson explains what has happened in such diverse yet Texas-connected realms as tort reform, labor policy, energy policy, congressional redistricting schemes, Washington lobby practices, tax law changes, the Supreme Court, the Department of Justice, and many more issues and institutions that affect the future of this country.
"Quirky, engaging, and meticulously researched...a page turner that reads like a legal thriller." (The Baltimore Sun)
"Combining the curiosity of a journalist with the perspective of an historian, John Anderson brilliantly lays it all out for the reader, whose jaw will drop when seeing what - even today - passes for political leadership and representation of the people in our nation's capital." (Craig Unger, author of House of Bush and House of Saud)
