about this item

Jon Meacham's account of the White House years of Andrew Jackson shows him to be a man of principle as well as of passion. Even in those days, says Meacham, Washington was a hardball town, and he recounts how factions, rivalries, and revenge-taking sometimes ruled the day. But Meacham shows, through Jackson, that politics can be principled as well. Jackson's core values--loyalty, being first--and his belief in populism brought him into conflict with Congress. Meacham examines the many battles that helped shape American history, showing Jackson to be, perhaps, the central figure of 19th-century America. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2008, and winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Biography.
