After what has felt like an eternity, The Coming of Democracy: Presidential Campaigning in the Age of Jackson (Johns Hopkins Univ. Press) is in the final stages of production. It is scheduled to come out in July and is available for pre-sale.
I want to publicly thank Harry Watson, Robert Owens, John Belohlavek, John Brooke, and Kirsten Wood for their kind words about the book. This book wasn’t the one I started out to write, but I am proud of how it turned out. I hope it extends the conversation about cultural politics undertaken by a host of my fellow SHEARites and reminds readers of the continued relevancy of Jacksonian-era politics.
