Publisher's Summary

Old Hickory. King Mob. The People's President. King Andrew I. The nicknames by which the seventh president is known reflect the different facets of his complicated nature. He believed in the rights of the common man because he came from humble beginnings and distrusted the vested institutions of power. The first American president born to immigrant parents, Jackson was the embodiment of the new blood which infused the American spirit in the early 19th century. 

You will hear about:

  • The birth of a legend
  • Jackson the general
  • Jackson and politics
  • Jackson’s home life
  • Jackson’s first term
  • Jackson’s second term
  • Jackson returns to Tennessee
  • Jackson’s legacy
     

Like his country, he was both ruthless and chivalrous, hot-tempered and steadfast, an authoritarian and a believer in equality. Jackson cannot be described in one-dimensional terms because there were layers to the Tennessee frontier president. Jacksonian democracy invigorated the national government and became a foundation of the modern political process. Controversial and complicated, Andrew Jackson's life is worthy of examination. To understand America, it’s vital to understand Andrew Jackson.
