“Four hundred pages of close textual analysis, biography and political philosophy, the book transformed the scholarly understanding of Lincoln, placing the prairie lawyer on a level with Jefferson, Adams, Hamilton, and the other founders.”
"A book that will never die--a genuine landmark in American thought. It's the greatest Lincoln book ever. No foolin'."
"One of the most influential works of American history and political philosophy ever published."
