A Country of Vast Designs: James K. Polk, the Mexican War and the Conquest of the American Continent

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaRecensionepeer review

Abstract

Robert Merry's book is not only a biography of the political career and the presidential administration of James Polk; it is a narrative of the premises and consequences of the conquest of the West and of the achievements of a continental Republic. This review aims at giving a comprehensive idea of a book that, in spite of a few weaknesses, gives us a deeper understanding of a particularly controversial U.S. President, as well as a an engaging portrait of the antebellum political scene.
