Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a part of Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought, the writings and speeches contained in this annotated edition demonstrate that Abraham Lincoln was a serious political thinker - not only in the context of his own time and circumstances - but for today, too. The introduction is comprehensive and the selections are carefully edited with useful extensive annotation and footnotes. They provide a better insight into Lincoln than many similar collections … This is one of the best selections of Lincoln’s writings available today and, timely too, with its publication during the sesquicentennial of the Civil War."
Frank J. Williams, Civil War Book Review
