A Wonderful Book That Exposes Lincoln For Who He Really Was!

I am continually amazed by all of the previous reviewers who have attacked DiLorenzo and this book. These people know full well that Lincoln was a notorious racist and that he always opposed racial equality yet they still support him because they themselves are liberal ...
I am continually amazed by all of the previous reviewers who have attacked DiLorenzo and this book. These people know full well that Lincoln was a notorious racist and that he always opposed racial equality yet they still support him because they themselves are liberal race baiters. They also don't understand that Lincoln himself throught his career tried to undermine our country, especially during the Mexican War. By all rights Lincoln should have been arrested and executed for treason for deliberately undermining our military and goals. Lincoln had contempt for freedom and democracy. That's why he choose to inaugurate a war that he knew he had no legal or moral right to engage in and why we're still paying the price for it today with an out of control government.

Don't Bother With This Book

Don't bother reading this book. The author skips around the main body of Historic evidence, cherry-picking only those tiny tidbits that fit his skewed world view. Among my favorites is the author's characterization of Lincoln as a warmonger--even though the first shots ...
Don't bother reading this book. The author skips around the main body of Historic evidence, cherry-picking only those tiny tidbits that fit his skewed world view. Among my favorites is the author's characterization of Lincoln as a warmonger--even though the first shots of the Civil Warwere fired BEFORE Lincoln was inaugerated. The fact that he accuses Historians of being a 'cult' is both wrong and pathetic. As for the reviewer that stated that Lincoln 'ordered' the deaths of 600k soldiers is amazing--and incorrect. Look, if you want to read History, and then read the primary source documents. Or, barring that, read responsible Historians, not a second rate Econ professor trying to be a Historian.

    Lincoln assassinated again

    DiLorenzo has made a bigger career of assassinating Abraham Lincoln than John Wilkes Booth could have ever dreamed. Absolutely shoddy research, spotty quotes and situations taken far out of context and incomplete, judgements on events almost 150 years ago through today's values, the list goes on. This book has it all -- wrong. There is very little different here that isn't already in "Abraham Lincoln...Unnecessary War". The author may be a fine economist, but he is an embarassingly poor historian.
