In response to Calhoun's petty and lengthy diatribes, Jackson consistently endeavored to put the dispute behind them and to heal a relationship broken by the Eaton affair.

He is the author of The Legal Ideology of Removal: The Southern State Judiciary and the Sovereignty of Native American Nations (Athens, GA, 2009) and the co-editor of The Encyclopedia of United States Indian Policy and Law (Washington, DC, 2008).
