Cover for PESSEN: Jacksonian America: Society, Personality, and Politics

Jacksonian America

Society, Personality, and Politics

A perennial choice for courses on antebellum America, Jacksonian America continues to be a popular classroom text with scholars of the period, even among those who bridle at Pessen's iconoclastic views of Old Hickory and his "inegalitarian society."

"Probably no other single volume will be so useful for undergraduates seeking a lively and reliable treatment of the era."--Richard McCormick, Rutgers University

"By far the best book [on the Jacksonian Era] that has ever been written."--Albert Castel, Western Michigan University
