Originally published in 1991, this pioneering work in Texas historiography, edited by Walter H. Buenger and the late Robert A. Calvert, placed the intellectual development of Texas History within the framework of current trends in the study of U.S. history.
In Texas through Time, twelve eminent scholars contribute evaluations of the historical literature in their respective fields of expertise—from Texas-Mexican culture and African-American roles to agrarianism, progressivism, and the New Deal; from perspectives on women to the urban experience of the Sunbelt boom and near-bust. The cumulative effort describes and analyzes what Texas history is and how it got that way.
