Texas, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, is a very different place than it was when the first edition of this text appeared over a half-century ago. Nevertheless, Texas: The Lone Star State remains at its core the work of Professor Rupert Norvell Richardson, one of the most respected Texas historians of the twentieth century. Through the preceding seven editions this work has evolved as new material and new historical interpretations have made their way into the text, and as new authors have joined the venture. Adrian Anderson and Ernest Wallace joined the text for the third edition, and Cary D. Wintz joins for the eighth. Adding to a strong narrative discussion of nineteenth-century Texas are new materials and information that emphasize the role of women and minorities in Texas history, the impact of industrialization and urbanization, the social and demographic changes that have occurred in twentieth-century Texas, and the transformation of Texas politics at the end of the twentieth century.Content Highlights: *New maps and photographs underscore the importance of geography in understanding Texas history, and graphically illustrate the role of the diverse peoples who have contributed to Texas history. *The Spanish and Mexican eras were revised to reflect new research in the field. Increased material on Mexican-Americans in post revolutionary Texas provides a strong coverage of the Hispanic influence throughout Texas history. *The events of the Texas revolution have been revised to incorporate recent scholarship. *The period of Reconstruction has been revised to incorporate recent scholarship. Special attention has been focused on the role of African Americans, especially in the development of the Republican Party during the Reconstruction and the post-Reconstruction period. *Material on politics in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Texas has been revised to more clearly include the role of women and minorities in Texas politics. The role of women in reform politics at the turn of the century and the impact of these movements on African Americans is discussed in greater detail.*The politics of post-World War II Texas have been more thoroughly discussed. Additional material is included on civil rights, the changing demographics of the state, and the resurgence of the Republican party.
