Texas law also recognized civil and common law marriages, unlike Mexican law. Divorce was also now an option and would remain a recourse for women and men in Mexico until decades later. Nonetheless, such legal options were still very much colored by entrenched gender ideologies.
River of Hope is a timely reminder of the devastating consequences of conquest and the uneven process of incorporation--which remained incomplete. Such processes were, however, shaped by local voices and events.
Such violence could in fact be countered and one way was by crossing the Rio Grande. Further, this study reveals how identity was shaped by racial, gender, and class ideologies, and how inhabitants frequently used such identities to cope with, resist, and negotiate changes in the community.

It is a story of vio- lence resulting from multiple conquests, of resistance and accommodation to state power, and of changing ethnic and political identities. Nor did it lead residents to adopt singular colonial or national identities. In , Spanish colonists arrived to establish settle- ments on behalf of New Spain colonial Mexico , which sought to consoli- date claims to its northern borderlands in advance of rival European colo- nial powers.
By the mid- nineteenth century, Mexico and the United States had replaced European colonial powers in competing for control of these borderlands. It traces the changes in identity of borderland residents through three pro- cesses of state formation: Spanish colonial — , Mexican national —48 , and American national — These processes included attempts on the part of colonial and national governments to administer their territories and regu- late the activities of residents through institutions and bureaucracies.
The United States subsequently fought a war of conquest with the avowed goal of promoting democracy—a contradic- tion that few Americans acknowledged. Nevertheless, some indigenous groups survived by estab- lishing alliances with colonists, while others were absorbed into Spanish colonial society. When Mexico failed to provide military protection but continued collecting taxes, Mexicans began ignor- ing government requests and prohibitions against trading with Anglo Americans.taylor.evolt.org/fypik-monfero-mujeres.php

After the takeover by the United States, the newly incorporated Mexicans became marginalized but adapted to American political and legal changes. They resisted through a strategic use of citizenship and by employing the international boundary. This book describes the transformation of privileged Spanish subjects into neglected Mexican citizens and, ultimately, into unwanted American citizens.
As colonists claiming land for the Spanish crown, they became both agents and privileged subjects of the colonial state. They established municipal governments and complied with royal orders; in return, the colonial government rewarded them with land and tax breaks. Predictably, the colonists grew resentful of a central gov- ernment that neglected their concerns. Yet, Mexican Americans confronted numerous obstacles in exercising their citizenship rights.
In the border counties along the lower Rio Grande, Mexican Americans comprised a majority of the population, but they exercised lim- ited social rights because americanos American citizens failed to accept them as community members. American laws altered class relations for residents on the U. Anglo American newcomers further transformed class relations by marrying into elite tejano families to obtain land and social status, or by becoming the new political brokers through their knowledge of U.
American jurisdiction also introduced liberal marriage and divorce laws that allowed more per- missive marital relations than in Mexico. Like their Spanish Mexican an- cestors who had constructed their ethnic identity in contrast to Indians, tejanos in the border region shaped their ethnic identity in relation to Anglo Americans and Mexican nationals.
