Description
These eloquent, compelling essays show why Lincoln was a man of his time and a man for all time. There is no better introduction to the complexities of his life and to why he still holds a spell over America and the world. Library Journal Among these original essays by prize-winning historians, James M. McPherson examines Lincoln s deft navigation of the crosscurrents of politics and wartime strategy. Sean Wilentz elegantly explores Lincoln s debt to the democratic political tradition of Jefferson and Jackson. Eric Foner examines Lincoln s controversial position on the movement to colonize emancipated slaves outside the United States. James Oakes explores Lincoln s views on the rights of African Americans. There are also brilliant essays on Lincoln and civil liberties, and on his literary style, religious beliefs, and family life."
