This is an engaging synthesis focused on the American Jubilee - marking fifty years since the Declaration of Independence - and how celebrated individual lives came to represent the nation. In terms of historical content I did not discover anything remarkably new to me personally, but Burstein's interpretation pushes back the emergence of "Jacksonianism" to the generational shifts of the mid-1820s, before Andrew Jackson's presidency. This is a worth-while read.
