Abstract "This book analyzes the tariff debates in Congress during the Age of Jackson. Even though the tariff typically provided the federal government with ninety percent of its revenue, historians have neglected this issue. This first major work on the tariff in more than 100 years argues that the tariff helped to draw more Americans into the political process"-- Provided by publisher.
