Carnahan (lecturer, law, George Washington Univ.) reminds serious readers what was entailed in Lincoln's recourse to the law of war in order to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. He explains the context and limits of Lincoln's implementation and why it was upheld by the courts. Appendixes offer the relevant documents. A worthy addition to academic and large public libraries, especially given current attention to presidential use of war powers.
