Beyond the Alamo: Forging Mexican Ethnicity in San Antonio, 1821-1861 by Raul A. Ramos
English | 2008 | ISBN: 0807832073, 0807871249 | 320 pages | PDF | 3,2 MB
Introducing a new model for the transnational history of the United States, Raul Ramos places Mexican Americans at the center of the Texas creation story. He focuses on Mexican-Texan, or Tejano, society in a period of political transition beginning with the year of Mexican independence. Ramos explores the factors that helped shape the ethnic identity of the Tejano population, including cross-cultural contacts between Bexarenos, indigenous groups, and Anglo-Americans, as they negotiated the contingencies and pressures on the frontier of competing empires.
