The writings of Abraham Lincoln by Abraham Lincoln ( Book )
26 editions published between 1888 and 1942 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abraham Lincoln never wrote a book: his ideas are contained in speeches, letters, and various occasional writings. By bringing these works together into a single anthology, this book shows that Lincoln deserves to be counted among the great political philosophers. In addition to many examples of Lincolnʹs writings, this volume includes four interpretive essays that will provide an intellectual feast for any reader exploring his complex legacy. Danilo Petranovich looks at Lincolnʹs conception of the Union and its radically new focus on purging the nation of the problem of slavery. Ralph Lerner reconsiders Lincolnʹs relation to the American framers and in particular his effort to put the Declaration of Independence on a new foundation. Benjamin Kleinerman examines Lincolnʹs always controversial views on the scope of executive power during war. And Steven Smith considers the place of religion in Lincolnʹs political thought through a close reading of his Second Inaugural Address

"In print, Brooks' wartime dispatches would equal 2,000 pages ...

Paragraphs containing color, human interest, and amusing anecdotes are included, such as descriptions of life in the White House, parades, or an occasional angry debate in the Congress"--Page 19
