Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The removal of Native Americans to the Indian Territory beyond the Mississippi River remains one of the most controversial events in U.S. history, and the man most responsible and widely blamed for this policy is Andrew Jackson. Hailed by The New York Times as "the foremost Jacksonian scholar of our time," Robert Remini now turns his attention to the single most controversial aspect of Jackson's long career. The first history to trace Jackson's involvement in decades of Indian conflicts, this book takes us through Jackson's entire life, from his early years as an Indian fighter in South Carolina and Tennessee to his victory in the Creek War in 1814, to his presidential years, when he set into motion the legislation that led to the Indian Removal Act, and, eventually, the Trail of Tears. Throughout, Remini demonstrates a masterful command of his subject and offers a thought-provoking and controversial defense of Jackson's strategy of removing the Indians. This book is sure to stimulate heated discussion among scholars and general readers alike.

An exuberant history in the great storytelling tradition, Andrew Jackson and His Indian Wars is also a sobering reminder of the violence and darkness at the heart of America's past.
