Why it took the Land o Enchantment so long to gain admissionto the Union
“The most omplete, original, readale, and lively aount o the sixty-year struggleetween pro-statehood leaders and equally powerul anti-statehood ores, oth inNew Mexio and Washington, D.C., that I have ever read.”
 Howard R. Lamar,
Proessor Emeritus o History, Yale University
New Mexio was eded to the United States in 1848, at the end o the warwith Mexio, ut not until 1912 did President William Howard Tat sign theprolamation that promoted New Mexio rom territory to state. Why did NewMexio’s push or statehood last sixty-our years? Conventional wisdom has itthat raism was solely to lame. But this resh look at the history nds a moreomplex set o ostales, tied primarily to sel-serving politiians.
Forty-SeventhStar,
pulished in New Mexio’s entennial year, is the rst ook on its quest orstatehood in more than orty years.David V. Holty losely examines the nal streth o New Mexio’s tortuous roadto statehood, eginning in the 1890s. His deeply researhed narrative juxtaposesevents in Washington, D.C., and in the territory to present the repeated ollisionsetween New Mexians seeking to ontrol their destiny and politiians opposingthem, inluding Repulian U.S. senators Alert J. Beveridge o Indiana andNelson W. Aldrih o Rhode Island. Holty plaes the quest or statehood innational perspetive while examining the territory’s politial, eonomi, and soialdevelopment. He shows how a ew powerul men rewed a onotion o raism,ronyism, orruption, and partisan politis that poisoned New Mexians’ eorts tojoin the Union. Drawing on extensive Spanish-language and arhival soures, theauthor also explores the onsequenes that the drive to eome a state had or NewMexio’s Euro-Amerian, Nuevomexiano, Amerian Indian, Arian Amerian, andAsian ommunities.Holty oers a ompelling story that shows why and how home rule mattered—then and now—or New Mexians and or all Amerians.
David V. Holtby
is retired as the Assoiate Diretor and Editor in Chie o University o New Mexio Press. He wrote this ook while a researh sholar at theCenter or Regional Studies at UNM. He has pulished numerous artiles on thesoial origins o the Spanish Civil War.
