Based on impeccable scholarship and written with grace and style, The Market Revolution provides a sweeping political and social history of the entire Jacksonian period from the diplomacy of John Quincy Adams to the birth of Mormonism under Joseph Smith, from Jackson's slaughter of the Indians in Georgia and Florida to the Depression of 1819, and from the growth of women's rights to the spread of the temperance movement.

Background Information

Founded by Joseph Smith and later led by Brigham Young, the Church of Latter Day Saints is better known as the Mormons. The long struggle for equal rights for women took shape in the 19th century and was resisted by conservative thinking about gender roles.
