Lincoln Unbound is a thoughtful mix of history and politics from Rich Lowry, the New York Times bestselling author and editor of National Review, which traces Abraham Lincoln's ambitious climb from provincial upstart to political powerhouse.Revered across the political spectrum, President Lincoln believed in a small but active government in a nation defined by aspiration. He embraced the market and the amazing transportation and communications revolutions beginning to take hold. He helped give birth to the modern industrial economy.Abraham Lincoln's vision of an upwardly mobile society that rewards and supports individual striving was wondrously realized. Now, it is under threat. To meet these challenges, conservative columnist Rich Lowry draws us back to the lessons of Lincoln. It is imperative, he argues, to preserve a fluid economy that makes it possible for individuals to thrive and live the American dream.

"We live today, Rich Lowry writes, in a 'Lincolnian republic.' Lowry explains what that means through a fascinating exploration of some of the less well known aspects of LIncoln's life and thought. In recapturing the 'essential Lincoln, ' Lowry helps us think about what's essential to the promise of America."--William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard
