Publisher's Summary

Andrew Jackson ushered in a new age, in which populist democracy (at least for white males) was favored over the more deferential politics of an earlier era. During Jackson’s presidency, the country stopped doing busi­ness with the Bank of the United States and left the business of inter­nal improvements largely to the states, but it condemned Southern states that sought to ignore federal protective tariffs and it threatened military action against them. Jackson relied on public support in national elections to justify expansive presidential powers. All told, the Jackson era ended the founding notion that the presidency was above politics and joined the two, indissolubly.
