    1 thought on “Andrew Jackson: The Course of American Empire, 1767-1821”

    1. bestpresidentialbios/2013/“Andrew Jackson: The Course of American Empire (1767-1821)” is the first of three volumes in Robert Remini’s series on Andrew Jackson. This first volume was published in 1977 and the series was completed seven years later. Although highly regarded, the series does not seem widely read. Remini’s 1988 single-volume abridgment of the series, however, remains quite popular despite the publication of more recent biographies of Jackson.Remini was a historian and profe [...]

    2. When I was in school, Jackson was treated as a hero in history books. Over the years, more unflattering facts have come to light about him, his vindictiveness, and his deplorable treatment of the Indians of the Southeast. I read this book in a hope to find a more balanced account of the man, the myth, and the legend. Unfortunately, all the facts presented by Remini only prove what a tyrant he was. Evidently, his charisma carried him a long way, for his battles (both military and personal) were o [...]

    3. I didn't know very much about Andrew Jackson before reading this book, the first in a series of three by Robert Remini on his life. It certainly demonstrates Jackson's contribution to the expansion of America, and also gives a good sense of his impervious character. I was struck particularly by Jackson's willingness to ignore laws and treaties that went against his wishes, despite being a lawyer and onetime Tennessee Supreme Court justice.I feel there's a clear dividing line among those who stud [...]

    4. Robert V. Remini's Andrew Jackson: The Course of American Empire is the first in his three-volume series on Old Hickory, covering his life from birth through his military career and time as Governor of Florida in 1821. Like all of Remini's work it's elegantly written and evocative in depicting the swirl, tumult and outsized personalities of early American politics, when the country's survival was hardly guaranteed and political divisions often resulted in duels, murders and other outrages. Yet R [...]

    5. Remini's first volume (three total) follows Jackson from his birth in South Carolina through the year 1821 when he resigned the Governorship of the Florida Territory. Throughout the book, Jackson's volatile, combustible temper is on display: challenging men to duels, lusting after military glory (as well as another man's wife), openly fighting with multiple Presidents and other Washington heavyweights, and being incredibly vindictive towards almost all Indians and anyone who disagreed with him a [...]

    6. From cracked/article_15895_"When the 1828 election rolled around, a lot of people were terrified when they heard Andrew "Old Hickory" Jackson was running. If you're wondering how a guy we're calling a bad ass got such a lame nickname, it's because he used to carry a hickory cane around and beat people senseless with it, and if you're wondering why he did that, it's because he was a fucking lunatic."

    7. Fantastic read on a fantastic and controversial man. A great, well paced, detailed read. Looking forward to part 2

    8. Butch, Central patron, June 2017, 5 stars:By "the foremost Jacksonian scholar of our time" (New York Times), the critically acclaimed and most concise biography of Andrew Jackson that takes a comprehensive look at the political, personal, and military life of the seventh president of the United States.

    9. This, the first of a trilogy, begins with its author's asserting the inscrutability of his subject, which, in my experience, is a bad way to start a biography. If one's subject is indeed inscrutable, what can be the use of three hefty volumes devoted to it?Remini manages to find enough to say about Jackson. The chronology is straightforward enough, neatly sectioned off in Remini's subtitular framework. This is indeed a sketch of Jackson the imperialist. The bulk of the early part of fhe book is [...]

    10. This book was the first of a three volume work on the life of President Andrew Jackson by Robert Remini. It covers the time from Jackson's birth (disputed as to whether or not it took place in South or North Carolina) until the conclusion of the Seminole War (stopping around the time he became a U.S. Senator from Tennessee). The detail in this book was compelling; Remini poured a lot of effort into letting the reader know the intricacies of Jackson's character in his pre-presidential years. He d [...]

    11. So I've had this affinity for Andrew Jackson ever since high school US history. He was always portrayed as the president for the common man. After all, it was under Jackson that the nation became more democratic (suffrage for all free white men though). He was also a brawler, an able general who was able to increase the size of the US through sheer will and also by skirting and disobeying orders. This volume reiterates Jackson as the type of guy who is quick tempered, erratic, and violent. He st [...]

    12. Perhaps this is the series to read for all serious students of presidential history and should be required reading for anyone considering political office. Every significant event in General Jackson's life is covered but perhaps most interesting is the background on the creation of the Democratic Party. I don't think the General would be pleased with either side but he would be astounded at what passes for acceptable behavior by those who govern today.

    13. Detailed Easy Flowing Balanced and critical. Adeptly illuminates a not well known Chapter of US History. Consolidation of South East of Mississippi seems a forgone conclusion after Lousiana purchase. Remini brings the down and dirty process to life and reminds us of Jackson's pre-eminent role in the process. Poignant today as this Chapter is politically incorrect and serves as justification for Jackson's demotion from the face of the $20 Bill.
