    Andrew Jackson, his intimate circle of friends, and his tumultuous times are at the heart of this remarkable book about the man who rose from nothing to create the modern presidency. Beloved and hated, venerated and reviled, Andrew Jackson was an orphan who fought his way to the pinnacle of power, bending the nation to his will in the cause of democracy. Jackson's election in 1828 ushered in a new and lasting era in which the people, not distant elites, were the guiding force in American politics. Democracy made its stand ... Show more

REVEALING JACKSON

by willard o on Apr 9, 2014

REVILED BY SOME HISTORIANS, JACKSON IN THE HANDS OF JON MEACHAM BECOMES A MAN OF FIERCE PATRIOTISM, COURAGE ON ONE HAND AND A BULLYING SCOUNDREL ON THE OTHER HAND. ROUGH HEWN HE SHOULD BE RANKED AS A TOP 10 PRESIDENT.

Book is a disillusion. American Joke !

by Gkhan100 on May 9, 2010

Bought the book and read it with an open mind. It is disillusion, period. It is filled with way too much information. I could not help but think that all the information is presented to help mask all of the horrible things this president did, especially to Native Americans. There are amy other history books, Native American oral traditions (which count as literature today), and manuscripts that shows this political figure as a tyrant who did not care for the sovereignty of Native Americans, one of the 4 core sovereignties in the American Constitution. Andrew Jackson was a bad decision period, that the American people chose. He was not a lion. He should be called American Joke.

Boring!

by boringlady on May 6, 2010

Got this book as we were reading it for my book group. Could not wade through it! Way too much information.

1957

interesting, but not compelling

by 1957 on Jul 9, 2009

Well done and full of info but delves into some details that to me were kind of dull. Mostly enjoyed.

WORTH READING!

by Aden on May 26, 2009

I am a devoted collector of books pertaining to US History, First Ladies and Presidents. Please don't let the negative reviews deter you. I really enjoyed this book and have recommended it to family members. I knew so little of Jackson and felt that Mr. Meacham brought him vitally to life with his flaws and perfections in place. Jackson's personality literally emanates from the pages. I was amazed by many events during his Presidency that directly correlate to what is happening in Government today. I am a better educated American for having read this very fine, Pulitzer Prize winning work.
