Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Whereas previous scholars have largely ignored the political character of Lincoln's antislavery argument, Johannsen (history, U. of Illinois) sees Lincoln as an astute and ambitious politician whose statements were delivered almost exclusively during political campaigns to meet political goals. He traces the political dimension of Lincoln's antislavery stance as it evolved from the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854 to his election as president in 1860. Annotation c.
