Book Reviews through the lens of historical memory, the inclusion of three documents related to the period with analysis by noted historians, and a selected bibliography compiled by the editors. I highly recommend this volume, not only for those interested in Texas political history, but for anyone interested in contemplating historical parallels to our current times. Many themes regarding Fergusonâs personality and governing style resonate strongly today, succinctly summarized in the editorsâ introduction: âThe problem was that what got Ferguson elected as governor was his platform of contempt of the existing power structure, but he did not leave that disdain at the door when he became governor. He was not a political team player; he did not know how to be, and he was not interested in learning. One person can get elected to office, but it takes a team of leaders with knowledge, experience, networks, and financial stability to effectively hold that office. None of these factors can replace any of the others and still turn out an effective administration. Fergusonâs demagoguery and headline-grabbing antics kept the public entertained and returning for more, but they were a political nightmareâ (2). Collin College Keith Volanto So Long for
