Rise of American Democracy by Sean Wilentz
Book DescriptionFerocious 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.
