Salvucci, Linda K.
History Teacher, v24 n2 p203-22 Feb 1991
Discusses coverage of Mexican history and Mexican Americans in 10 U.S. history textbooks approved for use in Texas. Criticizes the lack of complete information, ethnocentricity, and failure to present the Mexican point of view. Argues that U.S. history courses should cover topics of Mexican history, including Spanish colonialism, the Texas Rebellion, and immigration problems. (DK)
