Read the book and then dive deeper through conversations with the author to get engaged and support a strategy to urge politicians to cross the aisle.

“Anyone interested in creating jobs, building communities, solving problems, and moving forward with what Franklin Roosevelt once called ‘strong and active faith’ will find Hunt’s thoughtful explanation of the Tennessee story both illuminating and even inspirational.”
- Jon Meacham, Presidential Historian

A worthy successor to Hunt’s ‘Coup’, this volume continues the story of Tennessee politics from the early inauguration of Lamar Alexander in 1978 to the election of Phil Bredesen in 2002. In the process, it discusses how both Democrat and Republican leaders worked together for the good of the state and significantly boosted the well-being of its people and it’s national reputation. Topics include the success of the state and its localities in attracting automobile manufacturers luring sports teams engaging in educational reform, sponsoring a world’s fair and a successful ‘homecoming’ restoring cities, and combating child mortality. This is journalistic history at its best, and makes for engaging and informative reading.”-
