    Summary: 
    Slated to join the Texas Bookshelf series, A Single Star and Bloody Knuckles traces the state's conflicted and dramatic evolution over the past 150 years through its pivotal political players, including oft-neglected women and people of color. Beginning in 1870, when the state's modern political framework was born, the book examines Texas political life against the backdrop of the economy, industry, and race relations, revealing how the state came to define itself and ultimately how it played a powerful role in national affairs.
