Bush was one of the big fans of Bullock's cocktails and wrote the indroduction. After publishing this cocktail book, Prohibition made Bullock's profession illegal, yet bartending culture was stronger than ever, bartenders were well paid and tipped for supplying public a illegal substance of alcohol. Bullock moved frequently and changed professions during the dry period, but kept bartending at St. Louis Country Club where people could still drink. The country club did not keep the records on him working there. Feel free to take a look at our complete Reprint Catalog of Vintage Cocktail Books at

Renowned for his fierce devotion to the people of Texas—as well as his equally fierce rages and unpredictable temper—Bob Bullock was the most powerful political figure in Texas at the end of the twentieth century. First elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1956, Bullock held several key statewide posts before capturing the lieutenant governor's office in 1990. Though nominally the state's number two official, Bullock in fact became Texas's top power broker, wielding tremendous influence over the legislative agenda and state budget through the 1990s while also mentoring and supporting a future president—George W. Bush. In this lively, yet thoroughly researched biography, award-winning journalists Dave McNeely and Jim Henderson craft a well-rounded portrait of Bob Bullock, underscoring both his political adroitness and his personal demons. They trace Bullock's rise through state government as Assistant Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Comptroller, and Lieutenant Governor, showing how he increased the power of every office he held. The authors spotlight Bullock's substantial achievements, which included hiring an unprecedented number of women and minorities, instituting a performance review to increase the efficiency of state agencies, restructuring the public school funding system, and creating the state's first water conservation and management plan.

This book chronicles Tan Sri Dr K.S. Nijhar’s incredible journey in life, from his birth in the back of a bullock cart somewhere between the sleepy hollows of Kroh and Kelian Intan in Perak, Malaysia, through grinding poverty, obscurity and life-threatening ordeals to academic distinction, career success, political astuteness and wide renown. Nijhar’s personal journeys are set against the backdrop of the birth of a nation, from pre-war Malaya to independence and beyond, through his struggles and triumphs in the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC), and the relentless pursuit of his goal to serve the community and nation, blazing a trail for other micro-minorities in party leadership, and creating national history. Conveyed with candour and humour, Nijhar shares unforgettable experiences and hard-won, sometimes bitter lessons on how to be the best one can be. Today, at eighty, the “bullock cart boy” shares his life’s philosophy, “Dream and dare, and never give up!” and dedicates a message of hope to future generations, everywhere.
