Annotation:
In this biography, historian Sean Wilentz chronicles the life of the seventh president, the first who did not rise from the wealthy landowner class. Wilentz tells of Jackson's early years, his career as soldier and Indian fighter, and as lawyer and legislator, as well as his two-term presidency. Jackson wielded his executive power forcefully with the goal of strengthening the union, and he is regarded by many as a champion of the common man. But he approved the removal of Indians from their lands, and he is said to have had a blind spot when it came to the slavery issue. Wilentz addresses many of history's verdicts on Jackson, dissenting from some of them and offering his own judicious assessment of Jackson in his time. This life is a good followup to Wilentz's previous book, THE RISE OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, a massive study of the period from Jefferson to Lincoln, which has a large section on Jackson and Jacksonian democracy.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"It is rare that historians manage both Wilentz's deep interpretation and lively narrative." 10/31/2005
