The Passions of Andrew Jackson by Andrew Burstein
The Passions of Andrew Jackson

honera1, December 3, 2009

The main review states, "Like many non-academic writers of would-be historical blockbusters, Burstein is chiefly interested in plumbing the character of his subject..."

This is, in fact, false. He is definitely an "academic writer." One might ask, "How do you know?" Well, I am currently a student in Andrew Burstein's class at Louisiana State University. He teaches American History from the colonial times to 1865.
