Originally published by Louisiana State University in 1952 this concise account of the Texas Revolution was reprinted by the Texas State Historical Commission in 1979 and limited copies are available. This is an interpretive study based on what is known of the processes leading to Texas independence and examines the salient features of the struggle. Mr. Binkley relates the differences in the political experience, and the racial and cultural backgrounds of the groups who clashed in the Mexican frontier. Economic, social and political problems brought about suspicion and misunderstanding, but also traces the steps Texans took to try an reach a peaceful solution. Good collector’s item. Austin, 1979, 2nd Pr., 131 Pgs, HB.
