One particular reason why Remini's book might be a good read is that it really details how Jackson perceived the Native Americans as both military and political reader.  In his conflicts with Native Americans in the War of 1812, the reader gains better insight into how Jackson perceived the Native Americans and how these perceptions occupied critical importance in the formulation of his polices as both Governor and President.  It is a good read in that it presents much in the way of Jackson's own personalized narrative concerning how he perceived Native Americans, why he sought to reduce their power in American society, and how he went about implementing ideas that would ease his fears of the Native American presence.
