Jackson argues that the "withering influence" of slavery has put to shame American pretensions that the United States is "far in advance of any other in existence." He demonstrates the inherent expansionism and aggressiveness of American Slavery, and its effect on the weakening of republican principles and practices. He places his hopes in the anti-slavery Liberty Party.
In addition to his activities as a leading Massachusetts abolitionist, Jackson invented the first breakfast cereal, called Granula.
