Reviews

"It will almost certainly change the way you think about America and one of its greatest presidents. . . . Lind makes an already somewhat mysterious president still more puzzling and interesting."--The New York Times Book Review"Well-researched and reasoned. . . . Adds valuable perspective to the vast arena of Lincoln scholarship. Lind's aim is to give us a Lincoln in the context of his own times, as a man who lived within history and not above it."--The Christian Science Monitor "A thought-provoking contribution to the Lincoln literature that deserves to be taken seriously and will surely prompt debate."--The Washington Post Book World "[Lind] allows the reader to see beyond the surface for an intimate glimpse of this truly American icon."--Tucson Citizen
