Latin Americans in Texas

Excerpt

Those who would acquaint themselves with the problems of Latin Americans everywhere, especially their problems in getting along with Anglo Americans within the State of Texas, are confronted immediately with the complete absence of any one source book which might serve as a guide. It is to fill this need, in an admittedly inadequate but nevertheless comprehensive fashion, that the present text has been prepared.

I make no pretense that this is an exhaustive study. On the contrary, it is an attempt to sketch clearly, logically, and humanly, as a basis for understanding and action, the historical and economic background of our people of Mexican extraction, as I have understood it from extensive reading; the important beating of conditions in Texas upon relations between the United States and the other American republics; the problems of Latin Americans in the State, as I have encountered them in actual experience; and a sound, workable approach to the solution of those problems, with a view to furthering mutual understanding among the people of Texas and a solemn appreciation of Texas' role in the maintenance of unity in the American Hemisphere.

The bibliography aims to be as complete as possible, insofar as the Texas situation is concerned, including some unpublished materials. Reference is made to pamphlets and bulletins relative to specific phases of problems in Texas which have been prepared by various State and Federal agencies. Some of these publications are still available; others are already out of print. It is hoped that realization of the paucity of reliable information in published form will stimulate research in the various fields discussed.
