Lincoln's Preparation for Greatness: The Illinois Legislative Yearsby Paul Simon
This is a study of Lincoln's eight years in the Illinois House of Representatives. It is a portrait of his learning politics, becoming skillful in the field, measuring up to stiff competition and probably gaining a great deal of that self-confidence which served him well in later years.
