Tejanos, Chicanos & Mexicanos: A Partially Annotated Historical Bibliography for Texas Public School Teachers.
Wilson, James A., Comp.
Intended for classroom teachers on the secondary level, the historical bibliography cites 581 publications which can be obtained from bookstores, public and university libraries, and through inter-library loans. Although the materials, published between 1899 and 1973, stress Texas themes, material on the greater Southwest and the nation is included. The materials are divided into 10 sections. The first two sections consider reference works and general studies. Sections three through nine are devoted to the following chronological periods: the period before the white man came to Mexico and Texas; 1519-1821; 1821-1836; 1837-1848; 1848-1920; 1920-1945; and 1945 to the present. The concluding section is a catch-all which presents sociological and literary works, as well as classroom aids. Each section includes an introduction which conveys some general knowledge of the period and its significance. Entries are numbered and, in most cases, annotated; volumes available in paperback form are identified by the symbol (p). Topics include myths, missions, settlements, life and law, Indian policy, politics, government, the War of 1836 in Texas, manifest destiny, Anglo-American colonization, economics, immigration and labor, depression and deportation, educational conditions and needs, civil rights, attitudes, trends of and reactions to immigration, self-images, and mental health. An author index is provided. (NQ)
