This full account is of Polk's important pre-presidential career. Since Polk was immersed in so many of the major political developments of his day-the rise of popular democracy, the conflicts over the national bank and other crucial issues of Jackson's administrations, and after 1835 the fateful emergence of sectional animosities-his biography is also a history of his generation's political experience. Professor Sellers has combined the elements with a sure hand, bringing out Polk's character-his ambition, his determination, his faith in the electorate-and the nature of his friends, his enemies, and the times in which he moved. One feature of the work is the light it throws on the relation between national politics and those in Tennessee. Originally published in 1957. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.… (mere)

2016 James K. Polk: Continentalist 1843-1846, by Charles Sellers (read 20 Jul 1986) This is the second volume of Sellers' masterful biography of James K. Polk. This covers the period from Aug 1843 to Aug 1846. It is an extremely fascinating story and time. Polk received no votes on the first seven ballots at Baltimore, but on the 8th ballot, New Hampshire (the second state called--they called states in geographical order) gave all its six votes to Polk. He won on the ninth ballot. This book is just fascinating in its detail. The Mexican War really seems indefensible by any standard, the U.S. clearly being in the wrong and Polk eager for war. But how glad I can't help but be that all that vast area is a part of the U.S. This biography is excellent. I hope I can get the third volume. [Years later I determined the third volume was never written, or at least never published.] ( )
