Who's Texas?
The story of Texas history says a lot -- about the storytellers
News Story  September 6, 2002, by Lucius Lomax
"...As early as 1996, when the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum -- now bigger than life down on Martin Luther King Boulevard (or, depending on your point of view, "19th Street") -- was still in the conception stage, the decision had already been made to produce a "signature film" to be shown in the museum's IMAX theatre. The first proposal (dated July 2000 and tentatively titled This Land Called Texas) would have required seed money from the Legislature, followed by private donations, and a production that would feature voice-overs by six well-known narrators (Dan Rather, Tish Hinojosa, Lance Armstrong, Sissy Spacek, Chuck Norris or Tommy Lee Jones, and Barry Corbin)..."

They're History
The Blue Genie boys -- those whimsical artists responsible for the armadillo-festooned entrance to Threadgill's World Headquarters, the guitar gal atop Fran's Hamburgers, and other mini-landmarks around Austin -- have been fun for the people who see them and fun for the people who made them. Making giant panels for the new Texas State History Museum, though, was a bit more than just that.

Texas Is 'Big, Hot, Cheap and Right'
Erica Grieder's ode to the Lone Star State
DAILY Books  May 1, 2013, by Monica Riese
"...What follows that preface is not a straightforward bullet list or a how-to guide to becoming a functional state, but rather a sprawling investigation of Texas history, statistics and economics, and (because we're in the South, after all) anecdotes, all interlaced to make Grieder's case that Texas may well prove to be a leading light in coming years. It's an easy and accessible read – the author even pokes fun at her own potential weakness as a "product of Texas public schools" – if a bit meandering..."

Artist/Historian Jack Jackson
Books Story  November 15, 1996, by Jesse Sublett
"...Even before returning to Texas, Jackson had begun turning his talents and his inquiring mind to writing the history of his native state -- with a difference. Jackson applied the same spirit of rebellion and freedom that had energized his previous work to telling the untold, true sagas of Texas historical figures Quanah Parker, the last chief of the Comanches (Comanche Moon), a Mexican-American hero of the Texas revolution named Juan N. Seguin (Los Tejanos), and other stories with common threads: historically important figures whom conventional histories had marginalized or conveniently forgotten...."

Author traces Texas prison system from its roots in plantation slavery

"...Earlier this year, historian Robert Perkinson published Texas Tough: The Rise of America's Prison Empire (Henry Holt and Company, 496 pp., $35), in which he traces the history of American prisons through the prism of the "retributive mode" of the Texas system. Perkinson, an associate professor of American studies at the Uni­ver­sity of Hawaii at Manoa, has been studying Texas prisons since the late 1990s, when he wrote his doctoral dissertation on "convict leasing," the privatized, for-profit system that replaced plantation slavery after the Civil War and survived into the 20th century..."

Texas Tales
For those of you who are still pondering the eternal question that seems to arise wherever beer and English majors appear together in the Lone Star State, the answer is: Texas does indeed have a separate and distinctive literature, Tom Doyal writes.

The Secret History
That a man from San Antonio named Richard Santos has as much to add to the world of Jewish intellectual pursuits as an attorney named Rosen is as fascinating as it should be obvious, David Garza writes after he attended the Texas Jewish Historical Society's 22nd annual gathering. For the first time, perhaps, an entirely constructive revision may be taking place in the history of those we call the "people of the Book."
Books Story  May 11, 2001, by David Garza

'Texas Baseball' Marred by Errors
Book chronicling state baseball history drops the ball
DAILY Sports  June 15, 2012, by Russ Espinoza
"...Texas Baseball: A Lone Star Diamond History From Town Teams to the Big Leagues (The History Press) imparts a highly enlightening history that should be essential reading for nativist Texan seam-heads and their baseball-loving brood. Despite its mild prose and feel of a hurried treatment, Coppedge’s chronicle is most engrossing when illuminating the ancient and esoteric: like Jackie Robinson’s Austin ties, the rise and fall of the semi-pros, and the genesis of the Texas League, for instance..."

Esther's Follies: The Laughs, the Gossip, and the Story Behind Texas' Most Celebrated Comedy Troupe
In his history of Esther's Follies, author Jesse Sublett follows the flow of four decades of frivolity
Arts Story  November 30, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Seen that way, the challenge that Jesse Sublett (author of 1960s Austin Gangsters and Grave Digger Blues, among others, and a longtime Chronicle contributor) faced in penning a history of Esther's was on the scale of the Lone Star State: How does one capture 40 years of performances and performers, comedy onstage and drama off, in one book? His answer, as is apparent in Esther's Follies: The Laughs, the Gossip, and the Story Behind Texas' Most Celebrated Comedy Troupe, was: Talk to a lot of people who were there (and in some cases still are) and cram in as many photos as you can. Threaded through the heavily researched narrative that Sublett himself provides is an oral history from people who have been affiliated with the Follies – cast members, writers, technicians, support staff, artists – and assorted real estate types, pols, chefs, and other locals whose paths crossed that of Follies founders Michael Shelton and Shannon Sedwick over the years..."
