by Weber, David J

Condition: Fine

Albuquerque, NM: University of New Mexico Press. Fine. 1991. First Paperback Edition. Trade Paperback. 191 pages. Calvin P. Horn Lectures in Western History and Culture. In this widely praised collection of essays, David J. Weber explores the complex ways that myth and history have intersected in the remembrance of the Southwest’s Hispanic past. Weber’s engaging essays on the works of such respected scholars as Herbert Eugene Bolton, Frederick Jackson Turner, and John Francis Bannon examine the practice of history, particularly its myth-making power. Other essays reconsider specific moments in the region’s past, such as his provocative reassessment of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. .
