San Antonio Then and Now

Just as Sam Houston hoped, everyone does remember the Alamo, but modern San Antonio is so much more than that famous historic site. Building on the national recognition it enjoyed as the host of the World Fair in 1968, San Antonio is a center for the medical and biotechnology industry, as well as many multi-national companies. Twenty-first century business development blends harmoniously with Spanish and Mexican influences, local authors provide authoritative, insider text, and the archival and contemporary format of this tour offers a lively journey through San Antonio’s fascinating history.
