"Revolution in Texas is no less important for its contributions to the nascent discipline of Borderlands history. Johnson's book serves as a very model for the field. . . . [This book] should join the handful of indispensable monographs about Texas, and find an even wider audience among those interested in Mexico, the greater Southwest, and the politics of race in modern America."—Andrew R. Graybill, Western Historical Quarterly
From the Back Cover
"Benjamin Johnson's study of the Plan de San Diego uprising is a clear, absorbing analysis of a bloody but little-known revolt along a border that's been troubled ever since it was a border. By looking both backward and forward from the Plan de San Diego, the book does much to explain why Mexican-American identity is the complex fate we know it to be today."-Larry McMurtry; "An eye-opening account of a time when the Mexican Revolution came to the United States, when conflicting ethnic and national loyalties produced ghastly violence, deep bitterness, and a happier ending than anyone involved could have hoped for."-H.W. Brands, author of The Age of Gold: The California Gold Rush and the New American Dream --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
