Review quote

"For Lincoln specialists, The Historian's Lincoln deepens and sharpens familiar arguments. For nonspecialists, it is the most efficient and enjoyable way to 'get right' with Lincoln." Robert E. McGlone, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography "Provides an excursion to the frontiers of Lincoln scholarship, and insight into the passions of those who labor there... Rarely do the products of a scholarly symposium so richly deserve placement on public and academic library shelves." John Y. Simon, Choice "Authoritative, well written, and spiced by informed debate. In short, Lincoln's depth and height as a figure in history are well measured by this distinguished volume, not only in its several parts and authors, but also as a whole." Robert V. Bruce, author of Lincoln and the Tools of Warshow more
