Women have long made significant contributions to Texas history. Only in recent years, however, has their part in that history begun to be told. The great strides made in Texas women's studies are reflected in this important new book of essays about women and their many roles in the history of our state.
In October 1990, the Texas State Historical Association sponsored a conference, "Women and Texas History," which brought together some of the leading scholars in the field of women's studies. This highly successful conference — attended by hundreds and awarded recognition for its excellence by the AASLH — produced a raft of exciting presentations which demonstrated the vigorous quality and growth of women's studies in and about Texas. Women and Texas History includes thirteen of the best presentations at the conference.
This "milestone" publication, notes Fane Downs in her introduction to Women and Texas History, represents "the emerging maturity of the field of Texas women's history; moreover, these essays add significantly to our knowledge of the complex and diverse history of Texas." This ground-breaking volume will be of interest to students, scholars, and general readers, and is well adapted to classroom use.

Black leaders in Texas, both men and women, have contributed numerous examples of perseverance and triumph. This volume examines the lives of some of those black Texans who, in the words of Frederick Douglass, led the movement to "devise and carry out measures for their own social advancement, and for the general improvement of their condition." An excellent supplementary textbook.
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.
