The essays in this volume were chosen because they address the variety of ethnic affiliations, cultural traditions and historical experiences found in the people of Texas. Although the Institute of Texas Cultures identifies some thirty distinct cultural traditions in the state, many histories, because of their concern with political and economic developments, tend to emphasize Anglo-Americans, thereby minimizing other groups. Instructors with and interest in addressing cultural diversity in Texas—either in the context of class discussion or as outside reading—will, we hope, enjoy this book.
Instructors teaching from this volume might ask their students to watch for Anglo-American perceptions of the various groups, or the rate of assimilation groups demonstrated as time passed. Instructors might also discuss the differences in approaches and emphases of the several authors. Instructors might wish to point out that Myres and Rosenbaum focus on peoples often called "territorial minorities," people whose inclusion in Anglo America Coincided with the country's acquisition of the region, while Hewitt and Jordan address immigrants who chose, for whatever reason, to settle Texas.
