Editorial Reviews

Review

"Clemons writes an interesting and readable history of the construction of a cultural identity--the 'Texan'--on the local and global levels, making clear what is unique and what is commonplace about that identity. This is a significant contribution to the field--there is nothing else like it--and this book will take its place with recent cultural histories exploring, for example, Buffalo Bill and the Wild West show, rudeness and civility in nineteenth-century America, and constructions of gender." Rosemarie K. Bank, Professor of Theatre, Kent State University

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I ordered this book I was expecting a fun read but it is really very scholarly with footnotes but I have learned a lot from it.
