Nevada's politics has been formed in large measure by its turbulent history and harsh environment. Bowers's concise volume explains the dynamics of this process, which is strikingly unique among the fifty states. This is a readable and insightful explanation of how Nevada's history has shaped its political culture and how its government works today. The Sagebrush State includes the full text of the state constitution, with extensive annotations of all amendments to the original 1864 document.

The Sagebrush State serves as a text for the study of Nevada's history and constitution, which is a graduation requirement at the state's colleges and universities. The fourth edition of this work is updated through 2012 to include information on the elections of 2010 and 2012 and recent controversial sessions of the legislature. The year 2014 is the sesquicentennial of Nevada's constitution and statehood.
