Overview

Jacksonian and Antebellum Age: People and Perspectives spans the "age of the common man" by focusing on the everyday citizens who helped drive the big social changes of the times—or were simply caught up in them. The coverage takes readers into the lives of the frontiersmen, townspeople, women, children, religious groups, abolitionists, slaves, slave traders, and others who effected, and were affected by, the history of those times.

Jacksonian and Antebellum Age explores a pivotal era in American history, a time that saw the return of the two-party system, heightened voter turnout, and the gathering of the abolitionist movement. As this volume demonstrates, no study of these defining events is complete without understanding how they were shaped by the country's least celebrated citizens.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Jacksonian And Antebellum Age is an impressive and recommended addition to school and community library American History reference collections in general."

-

Midwest Book Review

"Use this for serious research on the time period."

-

Library Media Connection

". . . all of the essays are well written and will help deepen the average undergraduate's understanding of this period of history. Students will also benefit from a chronology, a glossary, a bibliography, selected primary documents, and a comprehensive index. Those libraries who have already committed to the series or who are collecting heavily in U.S. social history will want to add Jacksonian and Antebellum Age: People and Perspectives to their collection."

-

ARBA

"Serious effort was made to match the coverage of these volumes to high school curriculum standards. This set is perfect historical analysis beyond the textbook. Each volume is carefully researched and documented. The thoughtful essays, presenting content unavailable in other sources, are ripe for analysis by upper level students. Our AP US History teacher was thrilled to see them! Books contain black and white illustrations. Brief biographies are scattered through the text. Highly recommended.'
