Overview


The Lincoln-Douglas debates remain our culture's model of what public political debate ought to be. This new edition of the complete transcripts of the debates and eyewitness interpretations of them (previously published under the title Created Equal?) includes a new Foreword by David Zarefsky.

Zarefsky analyzes the rhetoric of the speeches, showing how Lincoln and Douglas chose their arguments and initiated a debate that shook the nation. Their eloquent, statesmanlike discussion of the morality of slavery illustrates the masterful use of rhetorical strategies and tactics in the public forum: a form of discourse that has nearly disappeared from the political scene today.

Editorial Reviews

William G. Edison
[Angle's] introduction and short introductory notes to each speech provides the reader with an excellent analysis of the problem of slavery in the territories, the movements of the candidates, the receptions in the various Illinois towns, as well as the physical arrangements, audience, and weather for each debate….Since 1968, other editions of the debates have appeared….Yet the Angle volume remains as one of the favorite most valuable of the debate accounts.
