First Down, Houston: The Birth of an NFL Franchise
First Down, Houston: The Birth of an NFL
Football is an American phenomenon, and Texas fans have long embraced the sport with unrivaled fervor. In 2002, when a new professional football team hit the Lone Star State, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, recognized a unique opportunity to record history in the making. Although millions of photographs of football exist, the first year of a NFL team has never been captured. The museum and the Houston TEXANS have collaborated to document the team’s first season. From the NFL players’ draft to the TEXANS’ opening day to the final game of the Houston team’s inaugural year, both the quiet and the frenetic rhythms of a major-league football enterprise are vividly charted. More than just a strict chronicle, The Houston TEXANS reveals every angle of the team that was founded by Robert C. McNair and has won the hearts of Texas football fans. Award-winning photographer Robert Clark (Friday Night Lights) was granted unprecedented access to the team. He took action shots and players’ portraits; shot views of training camp and weight-room sessions; and produced memorable images of the players and their families outside of the public’s intense gaze. He also photographed Mr. and Mrs. McNair, the coaches, and other staff members that are part of the business of professional foot...

Black Dixie: Afro-Texan History and Culture in Houston (Centennial Series of the Association of Former Students, Texas A&M University)
Black Dixie: Afro-Texan History and Culture in Houston
An innovative contribution to the growing body of research about urban African-American culture in the South, Black Dixie is the first anthology to track the black experience in a single southern city across the entire slavery/post-slavery continuum. It combines the best previously published scholarship about black Houston and little-known contemporary eyewitness accounts of the city with fresh, unpublished essays by historians and social scientists.Divided into four sections, the book covers a broad range of both time and subjects. The first section analyzes the development of scholarly consciousness and interest in the history of black Houston; slavery in nineteenth-century Houston is covered in the second section; economic and social development in Houston in the era of segregation are looked at in the third section; and segregation, violence, and civil rights in twentieth-century Houston are dealt with in the final section.Collectively, the contents of Black Dixie utilize the full range of primary sources available to scholars studying the black South. These include such traditional material as newspapers and diaries as well as newer techniques involving quantification and statistical analysis. The editors' remarks relate the individual essays to one another as well as placin...

Collision: The Contemporary Art Scene in Houston, 1972-1985 (Sara and John Lindsey Series in the Arts and Humanities)
Collision: The Contemporary Art Scene in Houston, 1972-1985
In this expansive and vigorous survey of the Houston art scene of the 1970s and 1980s, author Pete Gershon describes the city’s emergence as a locus for the arts, fueled by a boom in oil prices and by the arrival of several catalyzing figures, including museum director James Harithas and sculptor James Surls. Harithas was a fierce champion for Texan artists during his tenure as the director of the Contemporary Arts Museum–Houston (CAM). He put Texas artists on the map, but his renegade style proved too confrontational for the museum’s benefactors, and after four years, he wore out his welcome. After Harithas’s departure from the CAM, the chainsaw-wielding Surls established the Lawndale Annex as a largely unsupervised outpost of the University of Houston art department. Inside this dirty, cavernous warehouse, a new generation of Houston artists discovered their identities and began to flourish. Both the CAM and the Lawndale Annex set the scene for the emergence of small, downtown, artist-run spaces, including Studio One, the Center for Art and Performance, Midtown Arts Center, and DiverseWorks. Finally, in 1985, the Museum of Fine Arts presented Fresh Paint: The Houston School, a nationally publicized survey of work by Houston painters. The exhibition capped an era of inte...

Texans on the Brink (Integrative Natural History Series, sponsored by Texas Research Institute for Environmental Studies, Sam Houston State University)
Texans on the Brink (Integrative Natural History Series,
What good is a rattlesnake? What purpose do animals serve? All species play a vital role in their biological communities, and the removal of just one can have a noticeable and catastrophic ripple effect. Yet social and political pressures frequently pit species conservation against economic progress and prosperity, and scientists fear that we may be in the midst of a mass extinction event. Brian R. Chapman and William I. Lutterschmidt make the case that the effort to preserve animals is the responsibility of every Texan and that biodiversity contributes enormous economic value to the citizens of Texas. Texans on the Brink brings together experts on eighty-eight endangered and threatened animal species of Texas and includes brief descriptions of the processes that state and federal agencies employ to list and protect designated species. Species accounts include a description of the species accompanied by a photograph, an easy-to-read account of the biology and ecology of the species, and a description of efforts underway to preserve the species and its required habitat. Sobering examples of species that were once part of the Texas fauna but are now extinct or extirpated are also given to further demonstrate just how vulnerable biodiversity can be. All species require healthy hab...

Giant: A Novel (Perennial
The basis for the classic film starring James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, and Rock Hudson, Giant is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edna Ferber's sweeping generational tale of power, love, cattle barons, and oil tycoons, set in Texas during the first half of the twentieth century.When larger-than-life cattle rancher Jordan "Bick" Benedict arrives at the family home of sharp-witted but genteel Virginia socialite Leslie Lynnton to purchase a racehorse, the two are instantly drawn to each other. But for Leslie, falling in love with a Texan was a lot simpler than falling in love with Texas. Upon their arrival at Bick's ranch, Leslie is confronted not only with the oppressive heat and vastness of Texas but also by the disturbing inequity between runaway riches and the poverty and racism suffered by the Mexican workers on the ranch. Leslie and Bick's loving union endures against all odds, but a reckoning is coming and a price will have to be paid.A sensational and enthralling saga, Ferber masterfully captures the essence of Texas with all its wealth and excess, cruelty and prejudice, pride and violence.
