  • The author examines the role of Hispanic Texans from The Texas Revolution through the beginning of the twentieth century. While some useful data and information is presented, the views put forth are racists casting all hispanics as victims and all Anglos as villains. When He portrays the Texas Revolution as a race war instead of all Texans fighting against a Mexican dictator who abolished the Mexican constitution. Although useful in the study of Texas it should be read with a grain of salt.
