Summary
This dual biography with documents is the first book to explore the political conflict between Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay, two dynamic personalities whose contrasting visions of America's future shaped a generation of power struggle in the early Republic. In a narrative that outlines the fascinating economic, social, technological, and political dynamics of the early nineteenth century, the author examines how Jackson and Clay came to personify the choice between democracy and development. Following the biographies are 25 primary documents including speeches from the Senate floor, letters to the new president, and Jackson's famous bank veto that parallel the narrative's organization
