Neil Foley is former History Professor at The University of Texas at Austin, currently a Professor at the Southern Methodist University. N. Foley won the 1998 Grand Prize of the Robert W. Hamilton Book Awards for this book.

In a book that fundamentally challenges our understanding of race in the United States, Neil Foley unravels the complex history of ethnicity in the cotton culture of central Texas. This engrossing narrative, spanning the period from the Civil War through the collapse of tenant farming in the early 1940s, bridges the intellectual chasm between African American and Southern history on one hand and Chicano and Southwestern history on the other.
