A HISTORY OF TEXAS TO 1865
1st ed., March 1981, 262 pages, $19.95
A narrative summary of Texas history to 1865, this text deals
with Spanish, Mexican and Anglo periods and covers the background
to the Texas Revolution, its independence and eventual annexation.
Although the political aspect of the state's history is emphasized,
the social and economic influences are not neglected. This textbook
is suitable for use at either the junior college or senior university
level where a course in Texas history is offered. It provides
a good supplement to the lecture-classroom approach to instruction.
