Last year the music issue featured the state of Tennessee which, it goes without saying, is a treasure trove of great music. This year’s music issue features the music of Texas. First, Southerners debate whether Texas is really Southern. They certainly have the backward politics to matriculate in the club. But Texas has always trumpeted both its “Westernness” and its independence (as in "nation"). Talking about Texas music is as difficult, I would think, as talking about anything else in Texas if you aren’t FROM Texas.

On February 23, 1836, general and dictator Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna and a Mexican force of more than 2,000 men launched an assault against Colonel William B. Travis of Texas, his army of 155 men, and 15 civilians who were living in the fort known as the Alamo. The Texans, who were reinforced by 32 men by March 1, withstood the Mexican army until March 6. That day, the 187 Texan defenders perished in the hand-to-hand combat, including American frontiersmen Davy Crockett and James Bowie, and 600 from the Mexican army were killed as well. Only the civilians survived. At the last battle of the Texas War, the Battle of San Jacinto, General Santa Anna was defeated, and the battle cry 'Remember the Alamo!' could be heard being shouted by the Texan army. "The Alamo" examines this heroic episode in the Texas War of Independence against Mexico.

Behind the Walls: A Guide for Families and Friends of Texas Prison Inmates

Behind the Walls: A Guide for Families and Friends of Texas Prison Inmates (North Texas Crime and Criminal Justice Series) by Jorge Antonio Renaud
English | Nov. 4, 2002 | ISBN: 1574411535 | 241 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Texas holds one in every nine U.S. inmates.
Behind the Walls is a detailed description of the world's largest prison system by a long-time convict trained as an observer and reporter. It spotlights the day-to-day workings of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice—what's good, what's bad, which programs work and which ones do not, and examines if practice really follows official policy. Written to inform about the processes, services, activities, issues, and problems of being incarcerated, this book is invaluable to anyone who has a relative or friend incarcerated in Texas, or for those who want to understand how prisoners live, eat, work, play, and die in a contemporary U.S. prison.
