    Many factors--political, economic, sociological--contributed to the United States' westward expansion across the continent. But the role that sex played has largely been unexplored by scholars.

  • The Age of Jackson and the Art of American Power, 1815-1848by William Nester

    Potomac Books Inc. 2013; US$ 35.00

    As William Nester asserts in The Age of Jackson , it takes quite a leader to personify an age. A political titan for thirty-three years (1815-1848), Andrew Jackson possessed character, beliefs, and acts that dominated American politics. Although Jackson returned to his Tennessee plantation in March 1837 after serving eight years as president, he continued... more...

  • Spitfire Pilotby David Crook

    Grub Street Publishing 2008; US$ 7.99

    Spitfire Pilot was written in 1940 in the heat of battle when the RAF stood alone against the might of Hitler's Third Reich. It is a tremendous personal account of one of the fiercest and most idealised air conflicts - the Battle of Britain - seen through the eyes of a pilot of the famous 609 Squadron, which shot down over 100 planes in that epic... more...

  • Henry Clay and the War of 1812by Quentin Scott King

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 49.95

    Any biography of Henry Clay's 46 year political career quickly becomes entangled with his monumental, though youthful, political leadership of the War Hawks in urging the Madison Administration to arm the United States for war with Great Britain. He continued to advise in the war's progress and ended by being one of the five distinguished Americans... more...

  • The A to Z of the War of 1812by Robert Malcomson

    Scarecrow Press 2009; US$ 33.99

  • Patriotic Fireby Winston Groom

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2006; US$ 16.95

    December 1814: its economy in tatters, its capital city of Washington, D.C., burnt to the ground, a young America was again at war with the militarily superior English crown. With an enormous enemy armada approaching New Orleans, two unlikely allies teamed up to repel the British in one of the greatest battles ever fought in North America. The defense... more...

  • The Battle of New Orleansby Robert V. Remini

    Penguin Group US 2001; US$ 16.00

    The Battle of New Orleans was the climactic battle of America's "forgotten war" of 1812. Andrew Jackson led his ragtag corps of soldiers against 8,000 disciplined invading British regulars in a battle that delivered the British a humiliating military defeat. The victory solidified America's independence and marked the beginning of Jackson's rise to... more...
