A clear exposition tracing the public land policy from the beginnings of the republic onwards, and claiming (and succeeding, I think) to demonstrate its very major impact on the Jackson Era, and the formation of a new party system (Democrats vs. Whigs).

Mixture of social and political history. The view of politics is (perhaps appropriately) cynical. E.g., "Any measure was to be considered right which was popular for the time being. The politician felt assured that if he supported a bad measure when it was popular or opposed a good one when it was unpopular he would never be called to account for it by the people. It was believed that the people never blame any one for misleading them; for it was thought that they had too good a conceit of themselves to suspect or admit that they could be misled." -p132, 1995 edition.

Cited in Taylor, William Cooper's Town, and in works on politics of New York -- especially treating the growth of the Democratic party and the career of Martin Van Buren.
This book has been contrasted to Fox's later book Yankees and Yorkers, in which he deemphasizes the "decline of the aristocracy". I may have seen this in Benson, Concept of Jacksonian Democracy, New York as a Test Case, which makes the Jacksonians out to be quite conservative, or Leonard L.Richards' Gentlemen of Property and Standing, which does somewhat the same thing, with a specific twist.
Frequently cited in Wyatt-Brown, Tappan (W-B calls it "neglected"), and Cross Burned Over District for the underlying theme of Yankee (New England) immigration into New York (the city in the case of Wyatt-Brown, and upstate in the case of Cross), and its impact on the culture.

See Helper, Hinton; Fredrickson (ed), The impending crisis of the South
A good introduction, in about 400 pages, to the Nullification Crisis. It briefly presents the geographical, economic, and social background of South Carolina, and how these relate to the position the state was to assume as an extreme defender of slavery and disunion. It traces the crisis in which the state tried to nullify federal laws, and was faced down by Andrew Jackson with the aid of other unionists. Finally, it follows events as the state settled into a pattern of extreme reactiveness to the least threat, or perceived threat, against slavery, exemplified by the suppression of abolitionist materials in 1835-6.
With 9 pages of economic and demographic tables, and a useful 8-page bibliographic essay
Cited in Hinks, David Walker (p4), in the discussion of the anomolous state of slavery in North Carolina, particularly prior to 1830, and particularly in the Cape Fear area.
