Tejanos (Texans of Mexican heritage) were instrumental leaders in the life and development of Texas during the Mexican period, the war of independence, and the Texas Republic.Jesus F. de la Teja and ten other scholars examine the lives, careers, and influence of many long-neglected but historically significant Tejano leaders who were active and influential in the formation, political and military leadership, and economic development of Texas.In Tejano Leadership in Mexican and Revolutionary Texas, lesser-known figures such as Father Refugio de la Garza, Juan Martin Veramendi, Jose Antonio Saucedo, Raphael Manchola, and Carlos de la Garza join their better-known counterparts-Jose Antonio Navarro, Juan Seguin, and Placido Benavides, for example-on the stage of Texas and regional historical consideration.This book also features a forewordby David J. Weber,in whichhe discusses how Anglocentric views allowed important Tejano figures to fade from public knowledge. Students and scholars of Texas and regional history, those interested in Texana, and readers in Latino/a studies will glean important insights from Tejano Leadership in Mexican and Revolutionary Texas.
