"Kreneck not only traces the influential life of Houston entrepreneur and civic leader Felix Tijerina as an individual but illustrates how Tijerina reflected many trends in Mexican American development during the decades he lived, years that were crucial for the Hispanic community today. Kreneck outlines a pattern of identity and assimilation that has been traced in bold, broader terms by other scholars, who have called Tijerina's contemporaries the "Mexican American Generation.""--Jacket

Del Pueblo : a history of Houston's Hispanic community by Thomas H Kreneck( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though relatively small in number until the latter decades of the nineteenth century, Houston'sHispanic population possesses a rich and varied history that has previously not been readily associated in the popular imagination with Houston. However, in 1989, the first edition of Thomas H. Kreneck?s Del Pueblo vividly captured the depth and breadth of Houston?s Hispanic people, illustrating both the obstacles and the triumphs that characterized this vital community?s rise to prominence during the twentieth century. This new, revised edition of Del Pueblo: A History of Houston?s Hispanic Community updates that vibrant history, incorporating research on trends and changes through the beginning of the new millennium. Especially important in this new edition are Kreneck?s historical contextualization of the 1980s as the ?Decade of the Hispanic? and his documentation of other significant developments taking place since the publication of the original edition. Illustrated with seventy-five photographs of significant people, places, and events, this new edition of Del Pueblo: A History of Houston?s Hispanic Community updates the unfolding story of one of the nation?s most influential and dynamic ethnic groups. Students and scholars of Mexican American and Hispanic issues and culture, as well as general readers interested in this important aspect of Houston and regional history, will not want to be without this important book.--Amazon.com
