Remini, author of several daunting biographies of Jackson and his political contemporaries, has produced a smaller book here that is still large in significance. It recalls how the British, prideful and impetuous, expected to easily capture New Orleans on their way up the Mississippi River to join a complementary force coming from Canada, essentially slicing the United States in two. But they hadn’t reckoned on Jackson, whose recent experience in the bloody Creek War had sharpened his strategizing skills

This book, "Andrew Jackson", is a short but highly readable book you need to start knowing the man as well as the president. We find he is the first self made man, that is he was born in poverty. The first "up by his own bootstraps" type whereas the first six presidents were born to the wealthy elite. More importantly he was the first westener, that is, at that time, the first president to represent people living west of the Appalachian Mountains. These, and many other factors, Mr Remini points out impacted on how Jackson's presidency differs from those before him. By streaching & expanding executive power he changed the federal government from a congressional dominated government to a presidential dominated government during his administration. He vetoed more bills than all his predescessors combined. Mr. Remini expands his studies in lengthier books such as "The Course of American Democracy" and "Andrew Jackson & the Bank Wars." But if your serious about studing United States history linger on the Jacksonian era and read this book first
I have read several of this author's works, and have never been disappointed. It is easy to see why he has become an acknowledged expert on the "Age of Jackson." His writing is always very easy to digest, and his insights are illuminating. I highly recommend this book, and the audio version is equally enjoyable.
Very easy read. Enjoyable history information.
Jackson has been my hero since the late 'teens. These volumes are authoritative, exhaustive and he is so easy to read!
