President by Massacre: Indian-Killing for Political Gain

Author(s): Mann, Barbara;
Contributors: Mann, Barbara;
Abstract:

President by Massacre pulls back the curtain of "expansionism," revealing how Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, and Zachary Taylor massacred Indians to "open" land to slavery and oligarchic fortunes.


  • Provides the first comprehensive review of American Indian policies formulated and carried out by three nineteenth-century United States presidents (Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, and Zachary Taylor)
  • Reflects the expertise of an American Indian author among the most notable thinkers in contemporary Native American Studies
  • Stands apart from other books on the market by tackling the subject matter from a native perspective
