In The Republic of Violence: The Tormented Rise of Abolition in Andrew Jackson’s America, J. D. Dickey contends the white-supremacist violence abolitionists suffered and repelled was rooted in the Jackson administration, its policies, and the white workingmen’s politics Jackson advanced and relied upon. Reviewer Scott Gac understands Dickey’s impulse to situate Jackson at the headwaters of white supremacist violence but points out that broader anti-black agitation preceded the seventh president.
