KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a detailed account of the election campaign in which Andrew Jackson defeated John Quincy Adams for a second term as President. They tied for the popular vote and Jackson achieved his victory by a narrow margin in the House voting. For better or worse, the campaign marked a turning-point in American politics: it was the first one conducted by present-day methods and the first in which organized propaganda was used to elect a President.
