  • Alonso S. Perales: In Defense of My People
    • Abstract: Alonso S. Perales is among the members of the Nicaraguan delegation at the signing of the United Nations Charter, June 26, 1945. Perales is the third man standing from the left. UN Photo/McClain.On June 26, 1945, the last day of the inaugural United Nations (UN) conference, Nicaragua's delegation waited behind stage at the stately Herbst Theater of the War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in San Francisco, California. On cue, Mariano Argüello Vargas, Nicaragua's minister for Foreign Affairs, led his delegates past a grand display of national flags and to a large, round table at center stage where the Central American nation took its turn to sign the United Nations Charter.1 Argüello Vargas took a seat while his ...

  • Post–World War II Tejano Farm Labor: A Remembrance
    • Abstract: A map of South Texas showing notable locations for this article.Recent historical monographs about post–World War II South Texas posit that due to Cold War-era modernization and industrialization, large and mechanized corporate entities able to buy the needed farm machinery and devices, pay irrigation costs, and invest in insect eradication products displaced small independent farmers who could not afford the investments required for healthy profits.1 Newer research detects in this era the rise of a powerful and politically influential conglomerate of agribusiness companies with a free hand to exploit a mass of transient Mexican farm workers.2The corporate farming system that took root in the trans-Nueces River ...

  • "I Walked from Dallas, I Walked to Wichita Falls": Blind Lemon Jefferson's
           Enduring Ramble
    • Abstract: The only published photo of Blind Lemon Jefferson. From the author's collection.Lemon Henry "Blind Lemon" Jefferson was born in 1893 on a sharecropper farm near Couchman, Texas, north of Wortham in Freestone County; he died in Chicago in 1929. The cause of his blindness is unknown, but by the time he had reached his teens, Lemon was an accomplished musician. He started out playing country dances and picnics in the area and on street corners in Wortham, Streetman, and Groesbeck before venturing north to Dallas and the fabled Deep Ellum district.1 In 1925, Jefferson came to the attention of Paramount Records, and over the next four years, he recorded nearly one hundred sides for the company.2 His impact and success ...

  • The Lynching of Mary Jackson in Harrison County, Texas, 1912
    • Abstract: News of the lynching of Mary Jackson and George Sanders, Bryan Daily Eagle, Feb. 15, 1912. The lower images shows the article in the lower part of the third column of the front page.On February 13, 1912, a mob of unknown persons in Harrison County, Texas, lynched Black residents Mary Jackson and George Sanders for a crime they did not commit.1 A couple of weeks before, approximately January 29, Black resident Tennie Sneed shot and killed White resident Paul Strange over a personal dispute. The killing, even in self-defense, of a White man by a Black man in East Texas at that time often led immediately to violent reprisals, so Harrison County law enforcement took Sneed into custody and held him in what amounted to ...

  • Southwestern Collection
    • Abstract: The Board of Directors of the Texas State Historical Association has unanimously voted to hold the 2021 Annual Meeting online instead of in-person in Fort Worth, March 4–6. This decision was made primary to protect the health of our members; while we have all hoped that the impact of Covid-19 would diminish, health experts agree that the risk of large indoor gatherings will remain very high next March. Because of that, many members indicated they would not attend, and canceling now conserves financial resources that would have been paid to our host hotel. We also have an exciting online alternative that combines using Zoom and OpenWater, a meeting platform. Further updates will be available via email, social media ... Read More

  • A Black Women's History of the United States by Daina Ramey Berry and Kali
           Nicole Gross (review)
    • Abstract: Daina Ramey Berry and Kali Gross offer an illustrative history of Black women's contributions to and entanglements with U.S. history. I use "illustrative" rather than comprehensive because they make no pretense of crafting an encyclopedic history. Instead, they offer a starting point for exploring seven central themes of Black women's experience: mobility, violence, activism and resistance, labor and entrepreneurship, criminalization and incarceration, cultural production, and sexuality and reproduction.I use the phrase "entanglements with U.S. history" because the work includes many little-known and even nameless women, reflecting the challenge—and the politics—of the archive. Berry and Gross often read against ... Read More

    • Abstract: Sweet Taste of Liberty, which won the Pulitzer Prize for history in 2020, is a brilliant melding of meticulous research with engaging storytelling. The book follows the lives of the freedwoman Harriet Wood and enslaver and businessman Zebulon Ward, as well as the story of the research McDaniel conducted to reveal these accounts.Harriet Wood was born into slavery on a northern Kentucky farm and then, like so many other enslaved children, she was sold away from her family before reaching her teens. She lived in both Louisville and New Orleans as the property of the Cirode family. Jane Cirode moved to Cincinnati in the free state of Ohio and later brought Wood there as well, granting her freedom.In 1853, Zebulon Ward ... Read More

  • Doris Miller, Pearl Harbor, and the Birth of the Civil Rights Movement by
           Thomas W. Cutrer and T. Michael Parrish (review)
    • Abstract: Growing up on the East Side of San Antonio in the 1970s, I had many friends who attended Doris Miller Elementary School on Lincolnshire Drive. All we knew about Miller was that he was in the U.S. Navy during World War II and was considered a hero. Thanks to Hollywood, Miller later achieved mythical status as a Black sailor who, in defense of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, manned an antiaircraft gun he was not trained to operate. This is a story of selfless heroism of the kind that Hollywood loves to tell. After all, who doesn't love a good story where the unlikely hero stands tall in the face of trials and tribulations'Doris Miller, Pearl Harbor, and the Birth of the Civil Rights Movement by Thomas Cutrer and T. ...

  • Growing Up with the Country: Family, Race, and Nation after the Civil War
           by Kendra Taira Field (review)
    • Abstract: Over the past three decades, historians have created a thriving body of scholarship that centers questions of race and identity among Black and Indigenous peoples across the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century. Historian Kendra Taira Field's complex and elegant microhistory elevates this scholarly dialogue by tracing the movements of three multiracial freedpeople from whom she descended, Thomas Jefferson Brown, Monroe Coleman, and Alexander "Elic" Davis. She provides new perspectives on westward expansion and the migrations of African-descended peoples, the rise of ideas about racial destiny and Black nationalism, and the emergence of biracialism between 1865 and 1915.Throughout four chapters, Field ...

  • In League Against King Alcohol: Native American Women and the Woman's
           Christian Temperance Union, 1874–1933 by Thomas John Lappas (review)
    • Abstract: Many historians have examined the complex ways in which gender, race, religion, class, and culture shaped the American Temperance Movement. However, the ways in which Native American women navigated, shaped, and were shaped by temperance ideals has too often gone overlooked or has been examined in more one-dimensional ways. Thomas J. Lappas's book, In League Against King Alcohol: Native American Women and the Women's Christian Temperance Union, 1874–1933, offers a thorough examination of the motivations and ideals of Indigenous women who sought opportunities to improve the circumstances in their communities through the work of temperance. Lappas does an excellent job of contextualizing the place of Native American ... Read More

  • Churches of Christ in Oklahoma: A History by W. David Baird (review)
    • Abstract: In Churches of Christ in Oklahoma: A History, W. David Baird offers a comprehensive historical outline of the titular denomination in the Sooner State, where nearly one-fifth of American Church of Christ members reside today. Although a throwback to an older genre of church history, Baird's account swiftly and efficiently chronicles the denomination's institutional history in Oklahoma.Baird begins with a helpful introduction to the Churches of Christ, an anti-sectarian form of Protestant Christianity that, modeling itself after the "primitive" Christian church of the New Testament, upholds absolute congregational autonomy. Baird's Oklahoma narrative begins with late nineteenth century mission work in Indian ... Read More

  • Anointed with Oil: How Christianity and Crude Made Modern America by
           Darren Dochuk (review)
    • Abstract: Darren Dochuk, author of the highly readable blockbuster From Bible Belt to Sunbelt: Plain-Folk Religion, Grassroots Politics, and the Rise of Evangelical Conservatism (W. W. Norton, 2011), has followed up with another well-written doorstop, Anointed with Oil: How Christianity and Crude Made Modern America.Anointed with Oil sets out to tell "the religious biography of a natural resource with outsized— and seemingly otherworldly—importance" (9). Dochuk traces the history of the American petroleum business from Edwin Drake's first well in Pennsylvania through the turn of the twenty-first century. He seeks to show an affinity of wildcatters for a certain individualist style of Protestantism, along with the tensions ... Read More

  • Sabotaged: Dreams of Utopia in Texas by James Pratt (review)
    • Abstract: This is the second book in a year to deal with the subject of French-men chasing Utopian dreams in North Texas, following Paula Selzer's and Emmanuel Pécontal's Adolphe Gouhenant: French Revolutionary, Utopian Leader, and Texas Frontier Photographer (University of North Texas Press, 2019). But whereas Selzer's and Pécontal's focus is the man, Pratt's focus is the colony of La Réunion and secondarily Victor Considerant, its putative leader. Both have a lot to say about early Fort Worth and Dallas history.Pratt is a good storyteller, as evidenced by his choice of a title and his narrative style, the latter of which reveals a wry sense of humor in unexpected places. An architect by training, he has deep Texas roots ... Read More

  • Quill and Cross in the Borderlands: Sor María de Ágreda and the Lady in
           Blue: 1628 to the Present by Anna M. Nogar (review)
    • Abstract: Anna Nogar's work is a meticulous and mesmerizing archival and literary study of the seventeenth-century Spanish nun, mystic, and phantasm, Sor María de Ágreda. Although her literary work is now nearly forgotten, Sor Maria was a noted author during Spain's Gold Age, both in Iberia and in New Spain (greater Mexico). Her most widely read and influential book, La mística ciudad de dios (The Mystical City of God), was a treatise that popularized the theology of the Immaculate Conception, a doctrine that the Virgin Mary not only "conceived without sin," but that Mary, too, was divinely seeded into her mother's womb without 'the stain of original sin." Nogar's aspiration in this study is to restore Sor María to her ... Read More

  • Frontiers of Boyhood: Imagining America, Past and Future by Martin
           Woodside (review)
    • Abstract: Nineteenth-century newspaper magnate Horace Greeley famously enjoined: "Go West, young man, and grow up with the country." Scholars of American territorial expansion have long invoked that quotation as indicative of a broader national obsession with manifest destiny. But in Frontiers of Boyhood, Martin Woodside attempts something new. What if, the author asks, we took seriously the youth of Greeley's implied interlocutor' Did young men feel any particular connection to the West and its popular culture' For, as Woodside observes, ideas about childhood in the United States underwent profound transformation at the same moment that the frontier moved to the forefront of the country's collective imagination. Perhaps ... Read More

  • Dreams of El Dorado: A History of the American West by H. W. Brands
           (review)
    • Abstract: To write a history of the American West is a daunting task. The region is huge, geographically diverse, multicultural, and politically complicated. Most importantly, it has also been the subject, during the last four decades, of path-breaking scholarship that moves beyond traditional stories associated with the "Old West." New perspectives and questions have revealed the multiplicity of cultures and people who occupied that region, deepened our appreciation of the complex interactions that shaped its past and present, and fundamentally changed the way we conceptualize western history. Mastery of that robust scholarship takes time; synthesizing it takes dedication.H. W. Brands, a talented writer, is not a historian ... Read More

  • Beyond the Borders of the Law: Critical Legal Histories of the North
           American West ed. by Katrina Jagodinsky and Pablo Mitchell (review)
    • Abstract: Beyond the Borders of the Law argues against a long-held perception of the American West as a historically lawless borderland region of the United States. Instead, this edited volume contends that an "abundance of law" played a key role in tying nascent, distant territories to U.S. society (viii). Even as law covered the land, however, the meanings and applicability of law in the borderlands were fluid and negotiated between the colonized and the colonizers. The volume demonstrates how marginalized peoples used "cracks and fissures" in the law to their advantage in the liminal spaces of the American West (ix).The volume's introduction highlights the various scholarly approaches that underline a critical legal ...

  • The Deportation Machine: America's Long History of Expelling Immigrants by
           Adam Goodman (review)
    • Abstract: Adam Goodman's The Deportation Machine provides a much-needed historical perspective on deportations from the United States. It has become commonplace for journalists and social scientists to argue that deportations in the last decade have reached unprecedented levels. Goodman reveals the much longer history of immigrant deportations that have peaked and subsided over the past 140 years by exploring the range of ways in which immigrants have been expelled.Formal removals involving a hearing before an immigration judge have been a relatively small subset of the fifty-seven million deportations that have occurred since 1882. More than 90 percent of all deportations have been conducted through an administrative ... Read More

  • The Rise of the Latino Vote: A History by Benjamin Francis-Fallon (review)
    • Abstract: To write a history of the rise of the Latino vote in the United States is no easy task. It requires a readiness to confront the unexpected, to merge local and national politics, and to navigate how groups coalesce amidst national and political differences. I will admit to being skeptical about whether the author could pull that off. But not only does he succeed, he does so with grace and a narrative brilliance that keeps the reader engaged through twists and turns by political leaders in South Texas, East Los Angeles, and East Harlem.While the Latino community shares histories of colonialism, immigration, and racial formation, the experiences are vastly different along lines of citizenship, race, and culture. ...

  • Agent of Change: Adela Sloss-Vento by Cynthia E. Orozco (review)
    • Abstract: By 1970, Adela Sloss-Vento had authored more publications on civil rights than any other Mexican American woman. Guided by her Christian faith and her commitment to justice, she had developed over numerous decades into an unmatched advocate for immigrants, farm laborers, and women, firmly placing her at the center of the Mexican American struggle for civil rights.Her political activism is the soul of Cynthia E. Orozco's superb two-part book. Part one follows Sloss-Vento's decades-long journey as a civil rights leader, public intellectual, and feminist. Beginning at the age of twenty-six, she vigorously helped shape the Mexican American civil rights agenda in stages from 1927 to 1950, from 1950 to 1963, and from ... Read More

  • "Red Tom" Hickey: The Uncrowned King of Texas Socialism by Peter
           Buckingham (review)
    • Abstract: Irish-American Socialist Thomas Hickey has long been an enigmatic figure. Just about every study of Progressive Era Texas labor history includes at least a brief mention of him. He gained the admiration of thousands of downtrodden tenant farmers and the wrath of economic and political elites. However, there was no full account of Hickey's life until this one, Peter Buckingham's impressive biography. Buckingham's enjoyable storytelling befits Hickey's life of rebellion, heartbreak, drink, and unfulfilled dreams. The book also includes appendices containing two of Hickey's stump speeches, allowing readers the rare chance to absorb Hickey's own words.The little that was previously known about Hickey came from his ...

  • Biscuits, the Dole, and Nodding Donkeys: Texas Politics, 1929–1932
           by Norman D. Brown (review)
    • Abstract: The late historian Norman D. Brown had a long, successful career at the University of Texas at Austin, where he taught Texas politics, among other subjects. Brown is best known for his monograph, Hood, Bonnet, and Little Brown Jug: Texas Politics, 1921–1928 (Texas A&M University Press, 1984). His latest work, originally an unfinished, type-written manuscript edited for publication by Rachel Ozanne, a lecturer at the University of Texas, offers a well-researched and documented look at the complex characters and the divisive state of Texas politics from 1929 to 1932. The title, chosen by Ozanne, is an homage to the first book and a reference to its themes: the "biscuits" represent James E. "Pa" Ferguson's belief in ... Read More

  • Searching for Woody Guthrie: A Personal Exploration of the Folk Singer,
           His Music, and His Politics by Ron Briley (review)
    • Abstract: On the 1997 album Corazón, Steve Earle mourned the state of the world with a song addressed to one of his forebears: "Come Back, Woody Guthrie." Ron Briley's Searching for Woody Guthrie does similar work but goes Earle one further, manifesting the Popular Front songwriter as a continuing presence in our moment, an artist whose life and songs preserve what Briley terms an indigenous American radicalism. Briley does not write a straightforward biography, but instead combines original research in the Woody Guthrie Archives with a personal and impressionistic exploration of the parallels between Guthrie's experiences as an Okie migrant and Briley's own working-class upbringing in the Texas Panhandle town of Childress. ...

  • The Great Texas Social Studies Textbook War of 1961–1962 by Allan O.
           Kownslar (review)
    • Abstract: The focus of this important text by Allan O. Kownslar is the momentous debate over social studies textbooks that took place in Texas from 1961 to 1962. Unprecedented, the fiery exchange took place before the Texas State Textbook Committee, the State Board of Education (SBOE), and the Fifty-seventh Texas Legislature's House Textbook Investigating Committee over fifteen texts under consideration for adoption by the SBOE. The argument pitted conservatives who staunchly opposed adoption against liberals, who provided unequivocal support.Making use of numerous resources, including newspaper clippings and editorials, archival data, and transcripts of public testimonies that were delivered throughout the battle, Kownslar ...

  • We Are Not Slaves: State Violence, Coerced Labor, and Prisoners' Rights in
           Postwar America by Robert T. Chase (review)
    • Abstract: A rich body of scholarship has emerged in recent years that examines the historical roots of mass incarceration in this country. Robert Chase's We Are Not Slaves joins Robert Perkinson's Texas Tough (Metropolitan, 2010) and Ethan Blue's Doing Time in the Depression (New York University Press, 2012) as the latest in a genre of critical works that focus on Texas prisons that evolved from post-bellum slave plantations to modern military style disciplinary units.Different from other Texas prison studies, We Are Not Slaves considers the issue of sexuality within a total institution. Partly as a result of widespread negative publicity surrounding homosexual "perversion" (49) among state prisoners during the 1940s, the ... Read More
