Product Details

Praise

“Marrin gives readers an Andrew Jackson who is both a product and a shaper of his times….And by deliberately showing Jackson’s contradictions…Marrin lets readers judge the worth of Jackson the man as well as Jackson the general and president.”—The Horn Book

“More than a biography, this fine study of our seventh president is also a history and analysis of the times in which he lived…Marrin discusses the changes to society brought about by the Industrial Revolution, the railroads, and the rise of the market economy. Written in an engaging style and with a wealth of detail, the book is enhanced by numerous black-and-white illustrations, including reproductions of political cartoons, portraits, and documents. The lists of sources and of additional reading are extensive.” –School Library Journal, starred review
