Summary

Texas changed enormously in the twentieth century, and much of that transformation was a direct product of social and cultural events. Standard histories of Texas traditionally focus on political, military, and economic topics, with emphasis on the nineteenth century. In Twentieth-Century Texas: A Social and Cultural History, editors John W. Storey and Mary L. Kelley offer a much-needed corrective.
Written with both general and academic audiences in mind, the fifteen essays herein cover Indians, Mexican Americans, African Americans, women, religion, war on the homefront, music, literature, film, art, sports, philanthropy, education, the environment, and science and technology in twentieth-century Texas. Each essay, written by a prominent scholar in the field, is able to stand alone, supplemented with appropriate photographs, notes, and a selected bibliography.

This anthology will appeal to anyone interested in the social and cultural development of the state. It will also prove useful in the college classroom, especially for Texas history courses.
