Editorial Reviews

Review

'After reading through this volume, I am once again reminded of Lincoln's power as both a writer and a thinker. This is exactly what I want my students to understand and appreciate about his public life.' - Joan Waugh, University of California,USA 'The accompanying narrative is written beautifully. Undergraduates should have no problem following the development of Lincoln's career and thinking. The text shows Johnson's complete mastery of the Lincoln canon but is presented in a completely clear and easy-to-follow manner.' - Nicole Etcheson, Ball State University,USA 'This volume anchors Lincoln strongly in the moment and effectively shows the challenges that he faced as president.' - Elizabeth Nelson, University of Nevada,USA

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent compilation of Lincoln's speeches. I was surprised at some of the things he said, for example, about the Constitution and the framers' intent. The editor did a fine job selecting the speeches. It is never boring.

I am a high school teacher and this book is really great for primary sources. I have only had the book for about two months and it is a well loved teaching tool already.
