Summary "Superb professional history that moves boldly beyond the scholar's monograph to make the American past alive and exciting for the general reader." -- Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., 1984 National Book Award jury report
Available in paperback for the first time, these three volumes represent the definitive biography of Andrew Jackson. Volume One covers the role Jackson played in America's territorial expansion, bringing to life a complex character who has often been seen simply as a rough-hewn country general. Volume Two traces Jackson's senatorial career, his presidential campaigns, and his first administration as President. The third volume covers Jackson's reelection to the presidency and the weighty issues with which he was faced: the nullification crisis, the tragic removal of the Indians beyond the Mississippi River, the mounting violence throughout the country over slavery, and the tortuous efforts to win the annexation of Texas.
Subject Jackson, Andrew, 1767-1845.
