A revisionist portrait of Mexican American life in nineteenth-century Texas, The Tejano Community combines extensive research, penetrating insight, and critical analysis to support De Leon's contention that Tejanos were active agents in establishing communities and a bicultural heritage in Texas because of the resilience of their social institutions and a commitment to hard work. In this pioneering study, De Leon examines politics, urban and rural work patterns, religion, folklore, culture, and community. Overturning earlier views, he shows that the Tejanos were energetic, enterprising, success-oriented, as well as interested in and active participants in politics. De Leon's work has initiated a reevaluation of the Tejano experience in Texas. First published by the University of New Mexico Press in 1982, "The Tejano Community" is now considered a minor classic and remains a core study of Tejano life that continues to stimulate scholarship throughout the field of ethnic studies."
