Overview

Now available in three separate paperbacks designed for college courses, The Rise of American Democracy, acclaimed as the definitive study of the period by one of the greatest American historians, traces a historical arc from the earliest days of the republic to the opening shots of the Civil War.
Ferocious clashes among the Founders over the role of ordinary citizens in a government of "we, the people" were eventually resolved in the triumph of Andrew Jackson. Thereafter, Sean Wilentz shows, a fateful division arose between two starkly opposed democracies—a division contained until the election of Abraham Lincoln sparked its bloody resolution. The College Edition features a new preface and further reading lists for each volume. It eliminated the endnotes of the one-volume edition but preserves the entire text of the original.
