In 1946, historian William Ransom Hogan, then a professor at the University of Oklahoma, published ""The Texas Republic: A Social and Economic History"". The book became an instant classic of Texas historical literature. In an era when scholarly writing on Texas history still gave disproportionate emphasis to military and political history and ""great men,"" this book emphasized the lives of ordinary people as well as of the legendary figures of the Republic period. Hogan knew how to be a ""revisionist"" in the best sense of the term, offering up fresh interpretations that, as he put it, challenged the ""pleasant myth"" of ""heroic"" Texas history. Yet he also managed to balance his revisionism with an acknowledgment that the Republic era did indeed embody much that was heroic, even legendary. Naturally, ""The Texas Republic"" is a product of its time. If written today, it would undoubtedly pay more attention to African Americans and Tejanos, for example. But whatever shortcomings, the book may have in the eyes of modern readers, even those shortcomings make the book valuable in the college classroom, because they serve as important points of discussion for students and professors.
