Cover ImageThanks to the University of Tennessee Press, my previous book, Andrew Jackson and the Rise of the Democrats, is now available as a revised paperback edition. It will be published in October 2018.


“A prolific author on things Jacksonian, Cheathem has situated himself to inherit the late Robert V. Remini’s mantle as his generation’s leading authority on Jackson. Andrew Jackson and the Rise of the Democratic Party reminds one of Remini’s later works, which offered quick packages of conventional knowledge wrapped in breezy prose.”
