Now in its fifth edition, The History of Texas is fully revised and updated to cover the entire sweep of Texas history, from the pre-Columbian era through the Election of 2012. Incorporating the latest scholarship in all fields of Texas history—be they political, social, or cultural—the new edition of this classic text offers the latest insights into the original inhabitants, explorers, heroes, villains, politicians, sports stars and celebrities, as well as the unsung heroes of history, the ordinary people who shaped the region’s past and paved the way to Texas statehood. New perspectives on twentieth-century Texas events address the Progressive Era, the Great Depression, World War II and post-war modernization, and the state’s transition during the 1960s and into the 1980s. The book has been re-organized to better meet the needs of instructors and features a thoroughly rewritten final chapter covering a series of hot-button issues in modern-day Texas ranging from the recent gas-drilling boom to the rise of the Tea Party. With more than 100 photographs and 19 maps, The History of Texas remains the most comprehensive, best-illustrated, and inclusive survey of the Lone Star State.
