Named Old Hickory, because of the tough resilience he showed as a soldier at the battle of New Orfleans, and as a statesman.
The first president to arise from the" common people", he became our seventh president. The story as told by Remini is lavished with details of his private life, his friends and foes, his determination to preserve the independence of the U.S. An easy read, which has been condensed from the original three volume texts. A five star !
Publishers Weekly, 1988-07-01 Remini is the author of an acclaimed three-volume biography of the seventh president and now follows up with a superb condensation that incorporates the results of recent research. He describes Old Hickory's early struggle to overcome his reputation as a violent and vengeful man (``virtually a social outcast'' in western Tennessee); the spectacular fulfillment of his search for military glory at Horseshoe Bend and New Orleans; and his frequently turbulent two-term administration (1829-1837). In this vivid biography, Remini analyzes his subject's shortcomings, which included wretched administrative appointments, inability to replace the corrupt U.S. Bank with a better system and failure to bring Texas into the Union. But the overall emphasis is on a chief executive who ``served the American people extremely well,'' preserved the integrity of the Union, saved the government from misrule and liquidated the national debt. Jackson stepped down from office more popular than when he entered the White House. Illustrations. (August) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
