Summary

''Lincoln is endlessly chronicled because he is, like the nation he saved, endlessly fascinating. Ronald C. White has written a splendid, sprawling biography of a man we can never know too much about.'' -Jon Meacham, author ofAmerican LionandFranklin and Winston ''Ronald C. White, an acknowledged expert on the speeches of Abraham Lincoln, has now taken in hand a full-length biography. To this task he brings the careful reading, patient attention to context, and special sensitivity to complex questions about Lincoln's religion that characterized his earlier books. The result is a first-rate study that will probably be THE biography of the Lincoln Bicentennial Year.''-Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame ''Having given us two masterful studies of Lincoln's eloquence, Ronald C. White now delivers a riveting biography. This page-turner narrates all the major events of Lincoln's public career, including his military decision-making, but it does much more. No other book has so completely captured the elusive temperament of the man-- his humility and confidence, heart and intellect, religious spirit and secular sensibility. If you thought you knew Lincoln already, you'll know him better after reading this patient, probing work. A portrait for the ages.''-Richard Wightman Fox, Professor of History, University of Southern California ''Ron White'sA. Lincoln is a superb biography of America's greatest leader. It is fully fleshed, thoughtful, provocative, and scholarly. Lincoln is never out of fashion. After a generation during which three comprehensive one-volume Lincoln biographies appeared-Benjamin P. Thomas'sAbraham Lincoln: A Biographyin 1952; Stephen B. Oates'sWith Malice Toward None: The Life of Abraham Lincolnin 1977; and David Donald'sLincolnin 1995-A.
