Women have long made significant contributions to Texas history. Only in recent years, however, has their part in that history begun to be told. The great strides made in Texas women's studies are reflected in this important new book of essays about women and their many roles in the history of our state.

In October 1990, the Texas State Historical Association sponsored a conference, "Women and Texas History," which brought together some of the leading scholars in the field of women's studies. This highly successful conference — attended by hundreds and awarded recognition for its excellence by the AASLH — produced a raft of exciting presentations which demonstrated the vigorous quality and growth of women's studies in and about Texas.Women and Texas History includes thirteen of the best presentations at the conference.

This "milestone" publication, notes Fane Downs in her introduction to Women and Texas History,represents "the emerging maturity of the field of Texas women's history; moreover, these essays add significantly to our knowledge of the complex and diverse history of Texas." This ground-breaking volume will be of interest to students, scholars, and general readers, and is well adapted to classroom use.

Publication of this book was made possible in part by grants from the RGK Foundation of Austin and the Texas Committee for the Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
