If you are looking for a good resource for the Jacksonian American period, you might want to check out Charles Sellers' book, The Market Revolution: Jacksonian America, 1815-1846.
I had to have this book for an online class and used it quite extensively. The material is full though not overwhelming. I found it gave me most of what I needed for the class though there were a few topics that seemed to be missing or not covered enough for my needs. In that aspect, the book is not all encompassing for the period, but it does give you a good look into it.
The organization of the book flowed well aside from the formatting of the sections. There was very little white paper scene. After awhile, my eyes would cross wondering when I'd find a break in the section.
This is a book that is used as a textbook meaning that it is a little dry. I was pleased to find it not as dry as many of the textbooks I have to read, but the formatting of it made it worse, I think.
It covers the political climate, the religious climate, the economic climate, and more. This is a must have for your American history book collection. It doesn't have everything, but it has enough to get you started and compliment any other book you have.
Note: This book was part of an online class with no expectation of a review of any kind.
