Summary
  • Between the end of the Revolution and the Age of Jackson, thousands of localities within the young American nation struggled to extend the political and social rights embedded in Enlightenment ideals. Would the governed freely offer their consent? Would all citizens enjoy equal access to civil institutions?
  • Brooke masterfully imbues local history with national significance, and his analysis of the revolutionary settlement as a dynamic and unstable compromise over the balance of power offers an ideal window on a local struggle that mirroted the nationwide effort to define American citizenship. --Book Jacket
  • In Columbia Rising, Bancroft Prize-winning historian John L. Brooke explores this struggle and its powerful contradictions as it unfolded in one country named in honor of the mythic figure that embodied the promise of the young republic. By closely examining the formation and interplay of political structures and civil institutions in the upper Hudson Valley, Brooke traces the debates over who should fall within and outside of the legally protected category of citizen
  • The story of Martin Van Buren--kingpin of New York's Jacksonian "Regency," president of the United States, and first theoretician of American party politics--threads the narrative, since his views profoundly influenced American understandings of consent and civil society and led to the birth of the American party system
