"Author Ricky F. Dobbs traces the political career of Allan Shivers from his student days at the University of Texas, through his World War II service with the 36th Infantry and various state offices, to his role within the party after leaving the governor's mansion. Throughout, Dobbs places Shivers's career in the context of the modernization and urbanization that changed the state and regional picture. He portrays Shivers as one of the state's most powerful governors and compellingly shows his influence on modern Texas."--Jacket." ;
