In a handsome, gift-quality volume celebrating the 200th anniversary of Lincolns birth, Americas top Lincoln historians offer their diverse perspectives on the life and legacy of Americas sixteenth president. Spanning Lincolns life-from his early career as a Springfield lawyer, to his presidential reign during one of Americas most troubled historical periods, to his assassination in 1865-these essays, developed from original C-SPAN interviews, provide a compelling, composite portrait of Lincoln, one that offers up new stories and fresh insights on a defining leader. Edited by C-SPANs Brian Lamb and Susan Swain, illustrated with Lambs photographs of Lincoln landmarks, and promoted throughout the year on C-SPAN, Abraham Lincoln is a wonderful compendium of information and deeply-informed analysis that deserves a prominent place on every bookshelf.
