Summary:
"Amos Kiewe mounts a critical intervention into Jackson studies by focusing the lens on a little-studied aspect of the populist leader's 1830-31 campaign and subsequent presidency: his creative use of the press. Jackson was a force for reinvention, cannily directing his speeches--like no previous candidate--to the public at large and garnering unprecedented newspaper coverage throughout his campaign and time in office. By focusing on Jackson's public addresses, Kiewe is able to trace the president's rhetorical political maneuvering through his early campaign and the major trials of his presidency."--Provided by publisher.
