In the Loop: A Political and Economic History of San Antonio

Editorial Reviews


“No one knows the history of modern San Antonio better than David Johnson. In the Loop perfectly reflects his deep knowledge of and engagement with the Alamo City―it’s a tour de force!” ― Char Miller, author of Deep in the Heart of Texas: Land and Life in South Texas

“San Antonio finally has a thoroughly researched volume on the evolution of the city’s basic political and economic structure across three centuries. This eminently authoritative book will stand as a foundational not-to-be ignored work on San Antonio.” ― Lewis F. Fisher, author of Maverick: The American Name That Became a Legend
