Editorial Reviews

American Quarterly, Vol. 5, No. 1 (Spring, 1953) - Roy F. Nichols
This thesis Mr. Dangerfield constructs at great length summoning to his command vast stores of historic data. He writes beautifully; he is a master of clever phrases and trenchant paragraphs. He has done a good deal of research and has had his eye out for the picturesque. His portraits of Monroe and Adams will not soon be forgotten.
The Mississippi Valley Historical Review - Norman A. Graebner
In this delightful volume Mr. Dangerfield has attempted a synthesis of that well-defined period of American history which begins with the Treaty of Ghent and ends with the inauguration of Andrew Jackson. It is a fascinating America that comprises the subject of this book, one that had at the conclusion of the War of 1812 suddenly turned its back on Europe and had fallen upon its own resources to enter an era of intense internal development.
