Summary
"This riveting and fully human portrait of President Andrew Jackson places him within a living context of his time and draws compelling modern parallels, fleshing out Jackson as a no-compromise warrior and eccentric politician forced to navigate a crucial moment in America's history, when questions of national identity, political authority, religious authority, and the efficacy of democracy were seeping into all aspects of American life. Using diaries, letters, and newspaper columns from Jackson's contemporaries--including John Quincy Adams, James Monroe, Henry C. Calhoun, Daniel Webster, and Alexis de Toqueville--Birzer gives readers a radically new and historically true perspective on Andrew Jackson, while probing how the anxieties and values of Jackson's supporters compare to those of Trump's supporters"-- Provided by publisher
