Editorial Reviews

Allan Nevins
Crisply written, full of pungent comment and quotation, and abounding in vivid thumbnail sketches of imporant figures...it is a remarkable piece of analytical history, full of vitality, rich in insights and new facts, and casting a broad shaft of illumination over one of the most interesting periods of our national life.

I tried downloading this seminal work three times. Each time I got Robert Littel's It Takes all Kinds. BN has messed up access to one of the most important books at the foundation of American Modernism

There are so many "historians" and "peer reviewers" that are paid propagandists of the big banks it makes me sick. The fact that this book doesn't come up  when searched by ISBN or Title at all in the Library of Congress ought to tell you to read this book. Look at whose in power today and you will know... this is a book for the people. READ IT

This book should have been titled transition to the age of jackson, not just the age of jackson. It is wise of Mr.Schlesinger Jr. to discredit jefferson, hamilton, and clay to help highlight jackson but for him to spend almost 7 chapters doing so is unreasonable. However he does provide a new source of knowledge about jackson himself that was unknown to me. But if Mr.Schlesingers objective was making jackson seem like a honorable man,he has failed in my eyes.
