Overview

Jim Brown has a lot to say. His first book, JUSTICE DENIED, painted a chilling picture of how easy it can be for an individual to be prosecuted and persecuted by the federal judicial system. Since this first publication, he has continued his writings with a weekly column that is widely read in newspapers and internet sites throughout the South.

Few southern writers have observed the struggles within Louisiana to "catch up" with other more progressive states throughout the country. That is because Jim Brown not only has witnessed the changes taking place, he was a part of the political process for twenty eight years. His insights bring practical wisdom for the present and a vision of what could be in the future for this deepest of the deep southern states.

His observations and conclusions in are not just limited to within Louisiana. And that is the joy of this collection of columns. Jim Brown takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the world from Bangkok to Paris, from the D Day landing site in France to St Paul's cathedral in London, and a drive across America all with a Louisiana flavor.

And yes, he does have an agenda. Whether you read his opinions on political issues and current affairs to personal revelations, there will never be any doubt of Jim Brown's point of view. And that, we hope you will agree, is refreshing in this day and time.

But besides being a respected observer of the political scene in Louisiana, Jim Brown's ideas are what really matter. Yes, he entertains, inspires, and informs, and does so by cutting through the fog of confusion as to the future of the Bayou State. His lessons have appeal and application throughout America, and that is whyhis following continues to grow.
