9781596525108: Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen

The history of law enforcement in the Lone Star State goes back well before photography, dating to Texas’s days as part of the Spanish empire. After that Texas became a province of Mexico and for nearly a decade stood among the nations as an independent republic before becoming the 28th state in the Union in 1845. Beyond the contribution to law and order made by constables, sheriffs, town marshals, city police officers, and federal lawmen, Texas is the birthplace of a law enforcement institution unique in the world, the legendary Texas Rangers. Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen features close to 200 images of Texas lawmen, bad men (and a few bad women), assorted characters with a law enforcement connection like the legendary Judge Roy Bean, and shots of the places they did their work for good or bad. Each photograph has a story to tell. Some of the images in this volume, coming from the author’s personal collection, are published here for the first time. But all of the images command attention, many as attention-getting as the business end of a Texas Ranger’s .45.

Review:

Here is one book you can probably count on to make my Top 10 Texas Books of the Year for 2009.Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen by Mike Cox is a collection of nearly 200 old black and white photos, with introductions and captions provided by Cox, a respected Texas author and former information officer for the Department of Public Safety. Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen is a coffee table book that is like having a historic gallery displayed in your living room. --The Eagle, Bryan-College Station, Texas

Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen covers 1849 to 1938 and acts as a history of the era from early settlement to Prohibition and the Great Depression (there's a particularly disturbing image of the slain Bonnie and Clyde). As written and compiled by Austin-based Mike Cox whose previous book was The Texas Rangers: Wearing the Cinco Peso, 1821-1900.

As a cavalcade of uniquely Texas images, it's impressive. --The Star-Telegram.com, Cary Darling

We got a sneak peek at a great new photo book on Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen by Mike Cox. Really some stunners in there. Great hats, great guns, great gear. --True West Magazine

This, undoubtedly largest collection of pictures of these persons ever assembled, provides another dimension to the material presented in numerous books and magazines referring to this storied group of law enforcers. It is not unusual, especially for the aficionado, when reading an account of a particular action, to wonder what the person, or persons involved looked like. This book, in many cases, now offers the reader an opportunity to browse, in an attempt to satisfy this curiosity, and the splitting into time slots simplifies the search. --johnhmanhold.com
