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 t
o 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. Lincoln: A Biography,with its rich detail, will be the standard text for years
