Summary
"A detailed history of the Texas Rangers from 1921 to 1935 as the agency transitioned from gunfighters to criminal investigators. As the state of Texas transitioned from rural to rapid urbanization, the Rangers coped with an increase in organized crime and Prohibition enforcement, while hampered with legislative restraints, political shifts, and unresponsive bureaucracy"--Provided by publisher
