Handbook of Dallas-Fort Worth


As the Texan population continues its shift away from smaller rural towns to larger urban epicenters, a deeper, more complex, and more accurate account of Texas history that highlights the central importance of the state’s urban past becomes increasingly important. Approximately 85% of the Lone Star State’s population lives in an urban area, and the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex represents the largest share of these Texans. As a result, the contributions of metroplex citizens to the fields of business, politics, and science will only grow, and a thorough record of the state’s urban transformation is needed to document this historic impact.
