Dr. Nunn, professor of history at Texas Christian University, concentrates on the four-year administration (1870-1874) of Edmund J. Davis, the carpetbag governor. The era of the carpetbagger was one of turmoil and violence, when high-handed methods decided elections in favor of the Radicals in power, when the State Police were often more to be feared than the criminals they supposedly sought, when the Indians wrought havoc along the frontier, when the state administration brought Texas almost to bankruptcy in four short years. The years following the Civil War were tormented ones for Texas, as this enlightening book shows. Very lightly edgeworn DJ. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 304 pages; 29608
