BeschreibungThis rich resource of primary documents provides a comprehensive look at the conflicting arguments on the hot-button issues faced by U.S. presidents from John Quincy Adams to James K. Polk.
Pressestimmen"They were substantial and deliberative men, and they believed strongly in the promise of the new republic. They led the country as it faced the issues of Indian removal, repercussions of the Monroe Doctrine, rebirth of political parties, questions about the national banking system, abuses inherent in the selection of non-elected office holders, an economic panic, annexation woes, delicate dealings with foreign states, and, of course, the obscenity of slavery. Smith provides a series of primary documents arranged to help students develop their own conclusions about what Adams, Jackson, Van Buren, Harrison, Tyler, and Polk did and did not do about the challenges facing the nation." - Reference & Research Book News
