Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Although there has been little scholarly interest in Pierce (1804- 1869), the issues of his administration (1852-1856)--the Kansas- Nebraska Act, the Abolitionist Crusade, the enforcement of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act--and the political convulsions that took place during his administration have been the subjects of a large body of scholarship. This annotated bibliography provides information on sources pertaining to Pierce, his times, his administration, and other important figures in the government. Annotation c.
