James K. Polk and the expansionist impulse
Pearson Longman, 2006 - 242페이지
This biography explores the controversies, triumphs, and failures of the presidency of James K. Polk. Sam W. Haynes places Polk's expansionist agenda in both political and social contexts and examines the nature and origins of the expansionist impulse. Paperback, brief, and inexpensive, each of the titles in the Library of American Biographyseries focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of American History and national life. In addition, each biography relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times. This text incorporates the latest scholarship and draws upon the longer, far more extensive studies of Polk's life and times, but makes the story accessible to students in both survey and upper division courses in American history.

Review: James Polk and The Expansionist Impulse사용자 리뷰 - Rob - Goodreads
Admittedly, James Polk is not one of the most interesting presidents, but this book does not do anything to make him more interesting. An utterly dry and boring book drains anything that a reader might find worthwhile out of the story of James Polk and his time as president. 전체 리뷰 읽기
