For more than forty years the Handbook of Texas was the most comprehensive and authoritative source on Texas history. Now, the New Handbook of Texas -- a stunning six-volume encyclopedia and biographical dictionary covering every aspect of Texas history -- continues that proud tradition. Thirteen years in preparation, the new edition presents the efforts of more than 3,000 authors, editors, and reviewers. You'll find 23,500 articles covering the history of Texas from A to Z. There are detailed histories of all 254 counties and of major cities. Thousands of other entries highlight communities, key events, geographical features, historical sites, institutions, and organizations. The New Handbook tells the story of the people who made Texas history -- the men and women who shaped the Lone Star State. More than 7,000 biographical entries provide authoritative information about the famous and the infamous, the legendary and the overlooked. Other essays describe the many groups of people who have lived in Texas, from prehistoric cultures to twentieth-century immigrants. Particular attention has been given to the rich historical traditions of the African American and Mexican American communities in Texas and to the vital historical contributions made by individual women and women's organizations throughout the state. The Handbook of Texas Online is a joint venture sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and the General Libraries at the University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with the TSHA. It offers fully searchable electronic access to the text of the New Handbook as well as approximately 400 articles not included in the print edition due to space limitations.
