In a handsome, gift-quality volume celebrating the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, America’s top Lincoln historians offer their diverse perspectives on the life and legacy of America’s sixteenth president. Spanning Lincoln’s life—from his early career as a Springfield lawyer, to his presidential reign during one of America’s most troubled historical periods, to his assassination in 1865—these essays, developed from original C-SPAN interviews, provide a compelling, composite portrait of Lincoln, one that offers up new stories and fresh insights on a defining leader.
Edited by C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb and Susan Swain, illustrated with Lamb’s photographs of Lincoln landmarks, and promoted throughout the year on C-SPAN, Abraham Lincoln is a wonderful compendium of information and deeply-informed analysis that deserves a prominent place on every bookshelf.
