"This book is an essay in the narrowest sense of the term - an effort to throw some light on certain phases and aspects of the century-old struggle between the principles of freedom and those of equality, between the ideologies of liberalism and of democracy (in their classic sense, of course). It is obvious that this study cannot be exhaustive; nevertheless, the subjects of our analysis have not been chosen at random, but have been selected for special reasons." - Chapter 1: Definitions And Basic Principles, Liberty Or Equality: The Challenge of our Time

The Presidency of John Quincy Adams

By Mary W. M. Hargreaves

This book is in very good condition. The only problem is the previous owners name is stamped on the front end page and on page 303. Historians have not been generous in judging the presidency of John Quincy Adams. Those who have most conspicuously upheld Adamss fame have, at the same time, virtually ignored his service in the White House. Critics, on the other hand, have described his administration as a failure, founded upon bargain and corruption and marked by exclusion of the United States from the British West Indian trade, the ineffectiveness of its efforts to promote strong Pan-American relationships, and the enactment of the tariff of abominations. Some analysts have even argued that it generated the sectionalism which terminated the Era of Good Feelings. Mary Hargreaves contends, instead, that the basic effort of Adamss presidency was to harmonize divergent sectional interests. To ignore the Adams administrations commitment to nationalism, she argues, is to overlook a fundamental stage in the establishment of the federal government as guardian of the general interest. The volume contains new information on the development of United States commercial policy, the nations early relationships with Latin America, and difficulties of local and regional adjustment to the growth of the national economy. It will be of keen interest to all students of the economic and political history of the early national period.
