Lincoln, Douglas, and Slavery: In the Crucible of Public Debate

Overview

'This book is at once an original look at the Lincoln-Douglas debates and a multi-faceted, deeply layered, and nuanced study of how to analyze public rhetorical action historically. It deepens and alters our view of the debates as historical events, it goes beyond existing treatments of the debates as oratorical performances, and it broadens our sense of the ideas contained and argued over in them.' --Donald M. Scott, Eugene Lang College, New School for Social Research
