Nevada’s politics are in large measure the result of its turbulent history and harsh environment. Michael W. Bowers’ concise volume explains the dynamics of the political formation process, which is strikingly unique among the fifty states. Even today, Nevada is unlike the other states in its politics and culture: it’s economically right, yet libertarian, the home of widespread gaming and a 24/7 lifestyle, has a high percentage of federally-owned lands, and has one of the highest rates of urbanism in the U.S., yet is often governed by rural legislators. This comprehensive and insightful explanation discusses how Nevada’s history has shaped its political culture, and how its government operates today. The Sagebrush State serves as a highly readable and accessible text for the study of Nevada’s political history and constitution, which is a graduation requirement at the state’s colleges and universities. The fifth edition is updated through 2017 and includes the full text of the state constitution with extensive annotations of all amendments to the original 1864 document.

First published in 1934, this book tells the story of an American farm woman, her husband and family, and vividly describes farm life and farm psychology. “We Sagebrush Folks tells the experiences of a woman of education, refinement, and culture, who went with her husband to plow up wealth in the land under the then new Minidoka Irrigation Project in Southern Idaho. The ‘heart of gold’ that experience held was the beauty of Idaho, its sunshine, its sky by day and by night, its mountains, its vast stretches of gray-green sagebrush, which she saw transformed into fields and farms, its pure, clear, inspiring, stimulating air—and what all these meant to her, emotionally and spiritually. She writes with intelligence, a notable gift for expression, and a considerable interest in and knowledge of economics. An intimate, colorful portrayal of the daily life of the sagebrush farmers and their families, mercilessly truthful, but written with vivacity, cleverness, and humor, full of anecdotes, tales, and incidents that are often amusing, sometimes tragic, but always told with a keen sense of their dramatic values.” (FLORENCE FINCH KELLY, New York Times Book Review)
