✏The Politics of Storytelling Book Summary : Hannah Arendt argued that the 'political' is best understood as a power relation between private and public realms, and that storytelling is a vital bridge between these realms -- a site where individualised passions and shared views are contested and recombined. In his new book, Michael Jackson explores and expands Arendt's ideas through a cross-cultural analysis of storytelling that includes Kuranko stories from Sierra Leone, Aboriginal stories of the stolen generation, stories recounted before the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and stories of refugees, renegades, and war veterans. Focusing on the violent and volatile conditions under which stories are and are not told, and exploring the various ways in which narrative re-workings of reality enable people to symbolically alter subject-object relations, Jackson shows how storytelling may restore to the intersubjective fields of self and other, self and state, self and cosmos, the conditions of viable sociality. The book concludes in a reflexive vein, exploring the interface between public discourse and private experience.

✏Between One and One Another Book Summary : Michael Jackson extends his path-breaking work in existential anthropology by focusing on the interplay between two modes of human existence: that of participating in other peoples’ lives and that of turning inward to one’s self. Grounding his discussion in the subtle shifts between being acted upon and taking action, Jackson shows how the historical complexities and particularities found in human interactions reveal the dilemmas, conflicts, cares, and concerns that shape all of our lives. Through portraits of individuals encountered in the course of his travels, including friends and family, and anthropological fieldwork pursued over many years in such places as Sierra Leone and Australia, Jackson explores variations on this theme. As he describes the ways we address and negotiate the vexed relationships between "I" and "we"—the one and the many—he is also led to consider the place of thought in human life.

✏Jackson Book Summary : "Jackson was the first president who was neither a member of the economic or social elite, nor from the Eastern Seaboard states of Massachusetts or Virginia. Born poor and orphaned at fifteen, Andrew Jackson was a self-made man -- one who represented theSouth and the Western Frontier and its expansionist interests. He was elected largely by voters who were not previously a part of the political process. He was also the first and only president who carried in his body two bullets; one near his heart froma duel, and one in his shoulder from a shootout. He was indeed a change from the past. Jackson was the personification of the average citizen, the one who worked for a living, unafraid to get his hands dirty, and a symbol of the 'majesty' of the common man. As a general, he had required more of his men than any other general had before. He executed some and threatened to shoot others, but they loved him and fought and died for him. He reveled in his successes -- yet always praised and credited his soldiers with the victories. His military greatness lies not so much in his being a brilliant tactician, but in being a natural-born leader able to make decisions, usually successful, on the spot, and to do his duty as he saw it. With seemingly no credentials other than a contentious iron will, a desire to improve his situation in life, and a belief in the power and greatness of the American citizen, he rose to become president of the United States. The leadership qualities developed by Jackson as he rose in station by hard work, a firm belief in his own abilities, sheer force of will, help from others, and perhaps a bit of luck, propelled him from an obscure rural village to the epitome of public office, and ushered in what one author labeled 'The Age of Jackson,' and fundamentally changed the paradigm of how Americans selected their leaders"--Provided by publisher.

✏Andrew Jackson Book Summary : The towering figure who remade American politics—the champion of the ordinary citizen and the scourge of entrenched privilege "It is rare that historians manage both Wilentz's deep interpretation and lively narrative." - Publishers Weekly The Founding Fathers espoused a republican government, but they were distrustful of the common people, having designed a constitutional system that would temper popular passions. But as the revolutionary generation passed from the scene in the 1820s, a new movement, based on the principle of broader democracy, gathered force and united behind Andrew Jackson, the charismatic general who had defeated the British at New Orleans and who embodied the hopes of ordinary Americans. Raising his voice against the artificial inequalities fostered by birth, station, monied power, and political privilege, Jackson brought American politics into a new age. Sean Wilentz, one of America's leading historians of the nineteenth century, recounts the fiery career of this larger-than-life figure, a man whose high ideals were matched in equal measure by his failures and moral blind spots, a man who is remembered for the accomplishments of his eight years in office and for the bitter enemies he made. It was in Jackson's time that the great conflicts of American politics—urban versus rural, federal versus state, free versus slave—crystallized, and Jackson was not shy about taking a vigorous stand. It was under Jackson that modern American politics began, and his legacy continues to inform our debates to the present day.
