458Southwestern Historical QuarterlyApril Beyond Redemption: Texas Democrats after Reconstruction. By Patrick G. Williams. (College Station: Texas A&M University Press, 2007. Pp. 244. Illustrations, map, notes, bibliography, index. ISBN 1-58544-573-8. $29.95, cloth.) As Reconstruction came to an end, Southern Democrats, also known as Re- deemers, engaged in political strategies designed to help them reclaim their prewar status as members of the dominant party in the South. By the early 1 870s, they had accomplished their goals and Reconstruction came to a crashing halt in all but diree Soudiern states. Like dieir Southern brethren, Texas Democrats successfully ousted Radicals from state offices and began making plans to dismande Republican reforms passed during Governor E. J. Davis's administration. Scholars have examined in detail the demise of die nineteenth-century Republican Party in Texas, but few of them have studied the rise of the Democratic Party during the post-Reconstruction years. Patrick Williams's Beyond Redemption: Texas Democrats after Reconstruction fills this gap in Texas historiography by carefully examining the Democratic Party's reemergence in Texas during the late nineteenth century. Williams divides his study into two distinct parts. Part I, "Making Texas Safe for the Democracy," focuses on how Democrats seized control from the Republicans
