The contributions and influences of Mexican Americans in Texas history have been many and significant. Only in recent decades, however, have historians adequately told this story. The enormous strides made in the study of Mexican-origin people in Texas are reflected in this important new book of essays. In May 1991 the Texas State Historical Association cosponsored a conference, Mexican Americans in Texas History, which brought together some six hundred participants, including nearly one hundred leading scholars in the field of Mexican American Studies. In the words of the editors introduction, this highly successful conference confirmed and celebrated the existence of a substantial body of literature in Mexican American history. It showed that Mexican American history was on its way to assuming its rightful place of importance. This groundbreaking volume, which contains eleven essays from that pivotal conference, corrects and amplifies the historical record. "Mexican Americans in Texas History" will be of great interest to students, scholars, teachers, and general readers, and it is well adapted to classroom use. Selected essays include: Old Roads, New Horizons: Texas History and the New World Order, by David Montejano Occupied Texas: Bexar and Goliad, 18351836, by Paul Lack Mexicanos in Texas During the Civil War, by Miguel Gonzalez Quiroga Union, Paz y Trabajo: Laredo s Mexican Mutual Aid Societies in the 1890s, by Roberto R.
