In America’s Jubilee noted historian Andrew Burstein presents an engrossing narrative of life in the year 1826–a pivotal year in our nation’s history.

Burstein reveals a nation full of ambition as the reins of democracy are passed from the last Revolutionary War heroes to the first new generation of leaders. We follow an aged Lafayette on his triumphant tour of the country, and learn of the nearly simultaneous deaths of Adams and Jefferson on the fourth of July. We also see the year through the eyes of a minister's wife, a romantic novelist, and even an intrepid wheel of cheese. Here is a moving and lively portrait of a self-aware people at a major crossroads in American history.

“A snapshot of a nation in transition…. An excellent work.”– Booklist (starred review)

“[An] eminently readable re-creation of post-revolutionary America…. Burstein siezes the patriot in us very quickly.”–Orlando Sentinel
