Originally published in 1991, this pioneering work in Texas historiography, edited by Walter H. Buenger and the late Robert A. Calvert, placed the intellectual development of Texas History within the framework of current trends in the study of U.S. history.

In Texas through Time, twelve eminent scholars contribute evaluations of the historical literature in their respective fields of expertise—from Texas-Mexican culture and African-American roles to agrarianism, progressivism, and the New Deal; from perspectives on women to the urban experience of the Sunbelt boom and near-bust. The cumulative effort describes and analyzes what Texas history is and how it got that way.

 " Avowedly revisionist . . . a hard-hitting analysis of Texas historiography.” --East Texas Historical Association

 " An absolute must for research library collections and scholars of Texas history.”--Books of the Southwest

 " Should be well thumbed by any historian concerned with Texas topics."--Southern Historian  " A long-needed assessment of more than a century's worth of books, articles, masters theses, and doctoral dissertations on Texas history. . . . a well-conceived project that will prove to be a godsend for graduate students and their mentors, `Texana' collectors, and journalists."--Journal of the West

Review:

"All of the essays are exceptionally fine examples of historiographic interpretation, and each one is thorough, informative, and balanced." --Review of Texas Books (Review of Texas Books)

" An absolute must for research library collections and scholars of Texas history.”--Books of the Southwest (Books of the Southwest)

" Avowedly revisionist . . . a hard-hitting analysis of Texas historiography.” --East Texas Historical Association (East Texas Historical Association)

" A compelling accunt of how much good work is being done on the complex past of the Lone Star State.” --Lewis Gould (Lewis Gould Pacific Historical Review)

" Both a challenge and a gift to anyone interested in Texas history. . . . The revision, not the destruction, of the Texas myth is an exciting and desirable goal.” --Texas Books in Review (Texas Books in Review)

" Should be well thumbed by any historian concerned with Texas topics."--Southern Historian (Southern Historian)

" A long-needed assessment of more than a century's worth of books, articles, masters theses, and doctoral dissertations on Texas history. . . . [a] well-conceived project that will prove to be a godsend for graduate students and their mentors, `Texana' collectors, and journalists."--Journal of the West (Journal of the West)

“The Buengers have produced an excellent account of a regional commercial enterprise and its impact on the area it served. The growth and success of Leonard Brothers, as illustrated by the store’s retailing and merchandising practices, tells us much about the history of north central Texas and its development into a major urban concentration.” --Mississippi Quarterly (Mississippi Quarterly)
