Drawn from the weekly opinion pieces of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Don Erler's, Lone Star State of Mind presents an intelligent and principled analysis of life in these new-fangled times. Ranging across subjects, from the narrowly political to the broadly scientific and philosophical, the 106 essays collected in this single volume testify to a writer with a lively curiosity and a steady civic-mindedness. Unifying themes on the need for a vigorous defense of popular government and the benefits of capitalism are interwoven with discussions of censorship, abortion, terrorism, capital punishment, and education. Don Erler's musings on subjects of great concern to the decent citizen reveal a man alert to the both the accomplishments and deficiencies of his community. One finds, within the pages of this work, a fiercely independently-minded columnist who blends everyday old-fashioned commonsense with the lessons learnt in academia and business, and an American who firmly believes that 'truth remains the best armament for citizens of our democratic republic.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
Don Erler is a one of our finest political writers today. Move over George Will and Bill Buckley. -- Harry V. Jaffa, Philosophy Emeritus, Claremont McKenna College and Claremont Graduate School
. . . .The book may prove useful in both humanities and social science classrooms to spark discussion and analysis of both form and substance, and to provide topics for student research, argument, and rebuttal. -- Laura L. MClemore, Austin College
At the core of his essays is a sturdy sense of what is right and wrong, what is good and bad. Liberals and conservatives alike can profit from this collection of essays on a wide range of contemporary political and social issues. -- George Anastaplo, author of Abraham Lincoln: A Constitutional Biography * From The Foreword *
