In a new synthesis of modern scholarship and earlier insights, this book takes a comprehensive look at the complex quarter century between John Quincy Adams and James Knox Polk. It is not a simple narrative of events but a discussion of topics and issues, many neglected until now. In these pages are not only the surface politics and economics of the era, but also the American personality, family life, medical practice, the minor “ideological” parties, the status of women, crime in the streets, religion, Jacksonian capitalism, and implications of the “strong presidency.” This is a new and often iconoclastic look at American civilization between 1830 and 1860 -- Back cover.
