Age of Schlesinger


Arthur Schlesinger has moved on. Apart from a couple of minor cites from A Thousand Days for a paper I wrote a long time ago, the only Schlesinger I’ve read is Age of Jackson. That would have been autumn quarter 1993 at the University of Oregon, in a History of Jacksonian America class taught by “Mad” Jack Maddux. If I recall correctly, Erik Loomis was also in that class. Schlesinger spun an entertaining yarn in Age of Jackson, but it would have been nice if, at some point, he’d noticed that Andrew Jackson wasn’t actually Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
