This volume provides a thorough recounting of the events and decisions of Van Buren's White House years (1837-1841), and adds to the positive reappraisal of Van Buren as an able statesman and effective chief executive. Wilson stresses that Van Buren faced the major problems of his presidency with courage and consistency, and that he brought repose to a nation wrenched both by sectional differences and by the violent fluctuations of economic expansion and contraction." --Publisher+-+538751552515857ocn009508468book19830.29Niven, JohnMartin Van Buren : the romantic age of American politicsBiography+-+307252094515389ocn036767691book19970.25Marszalek, John FThe petticoat affair : manners, mutiny, and sex in Andrew Jackson's White HouseHistoryCase studiesUnfortunately, Jackson's quixotic actions turned a social scandal into an extraordinary political catastrophe.

Van Buren, a native Dutch speaker, was America's first ethnic president as well as the first New Yorker to hold the office, at a time when Manhattan was bursting with new arrivals. A sharp and adroit political operator, he established himself as a powerhouse in New York, becoming a U.S. senator, secretary of state, and vice president under Jackson, whose election he managed. His ascendancy to the Oval Office was virtually a foregone conclusion. Once he had the reins of power, however, Van Buren found the road quite a bit rougher. His attempts to find a middle ground on the most pressing issues of his day-such as the growing regional conflict over slavery-eroded his effectiveness. But it was his inability to prevent the great banking panic of 1837, and the ensuing depression, that all but ensured his fall from grace and made him the third president to be denied a second term. His many years of outfoxing his opponents finally caught up with him. Ted Widmer, a veteran of the Clinton White House, vividly brings to life the chaos and contention that plagued Van Buren's presidency-and ultimately offered an early lesson in the power of democracy. A portrait of the mid-nineteenth-century president considers his roles as the first president born after American independence, the first ethnic president, and the first New Yorker to hold the office, describing his failed efforts to control such issues as slavery and the great banking panic of 1837+-+977415053514058ocn000265377book19590.47Remini, Robert VMartin Van Buren and the making of the Democratic PartyHistoryA biography of Van Buren for the years 1821-1828 and a political history of the nation and of New York for the same years.

Belated justice to him was made possible by examination of more than 8,000 original documents, including revealing letters of Van Buren, Andrew Jackson, Washington Irving, and their contemporaries, which remained with Van Buren's descendants for half a century, and research in other collections. A new light is also shed on Peggy O'Neale, Webster, Calhoun, Astor, Clay, Rensselaers, the Randolphs and their associates in the Virginia Dynasty on whose ruins Van Buren erected his Albany Regency. This volume upsets the accepted Jackson tradition. We see Van Buren fashioning the national political machine. The model in which he rode to the White House has been used since his day, without change, by all political parties. -- Jacket60211ocn060722903book18620.79Butler, William AllenMartin Van Buren, lawyer, statesman and manHistoryBiography58730ocn011405423book18350.79Crockett, DavyThe life of Martin Van Buren, heir-apparent to the "government," and the appointed successor of General Andrew Jackson Containing every authentic particular by which his extraordinary character has been formed, with a concise history of the events that have occasioned his unparalleled elevation, together with a review of his policy as a statesmenHistoryBiography5771ocn018442157book19890.06Ellis, RafaelaMartin Van Buren, 8th president of the United StatesJuvenile worksBiographyTraces the childhood, education, employment, political career, and presidency of the man from Kinderhook, New York5623ocn000476551book19650.59Kass, AlvinPolitics in New York State, 1800-18305211ocn551781083visu20100.06The American presidents.

Mushkat and Rayback offer the first historical investigation of the nature, scope, and significance of Van Buren's legal practice as they trace the development of his republican ideology. Rather than a static set of immutable values and imperatives, Van Buren's ideology was a malleable body of thought. Dynamic and evolving, it exemplified the complexities of republicanism itself. As a teenager, Van Buren absorbed Jefferson and Madison's eighteenth-century classical republicanism. Later, the principles of classical republicanism provided guides during his first year as a practicing lawyer. As his legal and political careers developed, Van Buren adapted his ideas to new conditions, accepting key components of liberal republicanism. Van Buren's rise to prominence mirrors the relevance of law to politics. As a New York attorney, Van Buren worked with legal issues in the nation's most important state during the early nineteenth century. His key contributions were Americanization of the common law and modernization of contract law. His experience also helped shape his perspectives on such matters as the allocation and use of power, judicial activism and legislative supremacy, and property and gender rights. Consulting a wide range of original legal sources not previously used by historians, Mushkat and Rayback offer a fresh and intriguing biographical approach to an American president that challenges traditional perceptions and adds new insight into Van Buren's place in American political and legal history+-+K477530235+-+6680553215+-+6680553215Fri Mar 21 16:04:40 EDT 2014batch59991
