Sintesi dell'editore

For nearly 90 years, Lord Charnwood’s Abraham Lincoln has been the standard life history of the Great Emancipator. It has become one of the great classics of modern biography and has been read by millions.

Charnwood describes the frontier life and continual self-education that developed Lincoln’s rare character and helped him to adapt to great events and demands such as few other men have experienced. Lincoln the man is analyzed against the dramatic historical background of the colonial days, the Revolution, the War of 1812, the Missouri Compromise, secession, and an exciting history of the Civil War. Lincoln’s administrative genius, his war strategy, and his neglect of the lesser for the greater are all treated in this masterly portrait. The famous Lincoln-Douglas debates are also included.

“Lord Charnwood has given us the most complete interpretation of Lincoln as yet produced, and he has presented it in such artistic form that it may well become a classic.” ( American Historical Review)

A British Perspective

This is an old, somewhat antiquated biography of Lincoln written by a British academic.

It does a solid job of telling the story of Lincoln's life, particularly focusing on the war years and his legacy thereafter.

For American listeners, however, the most interesting thing about this book is simply that it tells a history of America from the British perspective. Generals and politicians who are unanimously lauded in American textbooks are looked at with a scrutiny that seems pretentious but is, in fact, merely British.

Elegant and detailed.

Very interesting and wide ranging. A lot of detail that perhaps slows up the narration of events but is all interesting and not superfluous. the English is very dated but elegant and the historical proximity of writer to his subject makes it a fascinating view.
