Sure to be welcomed by scholars of the Jacksonian era and others interested in 19th-century American history, this presents an in-depth examination of O'Sullivan's ideas as expressed in the Democratic Review and other newspapers and literary magazines he edited. Sampson brings to life one of the most enigmatic, romantic, and ultimately tragic characters in American history.
