Following The Texas Rangers, his magnificent history of the nineteenth century Texas Rangers, Mike Cox now takes readers from 1900 to the present, from horseback to helicopters, from the frontier cattle days through the crime-ridden boom or bust oil-field era, from Prohibition to World War II espionage to the violent ethnic turbulence of the 50s and 60s...which sometimes led to demands that the Rangers be disbanded. Cox shows us how the Rangers grew from a tough group of horse-borne lawmen too prone to hand out roadside justice, critics complained to one of the world s premier investigative agencies, respected and admired worldwide.

Review:

Mike Cox has a unique background for presenting the checkered history of the Rangers. During several years as a spokesman for the Texas Department of Safety, he had access to detailed records and experienced first hand the mystique that clings to this fabled law enforcement body. Though he gives us the flashes of glory, he does not flinch from the dark side of the Rangers past. --Elmer Kelton, Texas legend and author of The Texas Rangers novel series.

About the Author:

MIKE COX, an elected member of the Texas Institute of Letters, began his writing career as a Texas newspaper reporter, then spent fifteen years as spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, which includes the Texas Rangers and later was Communications Manager for the Texas Department of Transportation.

Taking readers through the major social and political movements of the Texas territory and into its statehood, Cox showshow the Rangers were a defining force in the stabilizationand the creation of Texas. From Stephen Austin in the early days through theCivil War, the first eighty years of the Texas Rangers were nothing less than phenomenal, and the efforts put forth in those days set the foundation forthe Texas Rangers who keep Texas safe today.
