Reviews
Frank J. Williams, Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court and Founding Chair of The Lincoln Forum
"Brian Lamb and Susan Swain, in this latest C-SPAN book containing fifty-five articles about Abraham Lincoln taken from "Booknotes" and other C-SPAN programs, have given us a virtual biography of America's greatest political leader. It is an extraordinary gift to us in the bicentennial year of Lincoln's birth."
"Booklist," October 15, 2008
"This volume's review of the past 15 years of Lincoln authorial effort demonstrates how interpretively vibrant the subject remains"
"Kirkus," October 1, 2008
"As the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth approaches, this collection serves as a useful introduction to the startling depth of the Lincoln discussion among scholars during the past decade and a half."
