Descrizione libro Random House. 1 Paperback(s), 2010. soft. Condizione libro: New. (Winner of the Christopher Award and named a Best Book of the Year by the Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, and St. Louis Post-Dispatch) The author of The Eloquent President and the New York Times Notable Book Lincoln's Greatest Speech, Lincoln scholar Ronald White offers a fresh portrait of the 16th president as a man of integrity, whose moral compass holds the key to understanding his life; his Lincoln is a person of intellectual curiosity, comfortable with ambiguity, unafraid to "think anew and act anew." White shows us Lincoln as a man who would leave a trail of thoughts in his wake, jotting ideas on scraps of paper and filing them in his top hat or the bottom drawer of his desk; a country lawyer who asked questions in order to figure out his own thinking on an issue as much as to argue the case; a hands-on commander in chief who, as soldiers and sailors watched in amazement, commandeered a boat and ordered an attack on Confederate shore batteries at the tip of the Virginia peninsula; a man who struggled with the immorality of slavery and as president acted publicly and privately to outlaw it forever; and finally, a president involved in a religious odyssey who wrote, for his own use only, a profound meditation on "the will of God" in the Civil War that would become the basis of his finest address."This thoroughly researched book belongs on the A-list of major biographies of the tall Illinoisian; it's a worthy companion for all who admire Lincoln's prose and his ability to see into, and explain, America's greatest crisis."—Washington Post"Ronald C. White's A. Lincoln is the best biography of Lincoln since David Donald's Lincoln. In many respects it is better than Donald's biography, because it has incorporated the scholarship of the past 14 years and is written in a fluent style that will appeal to a large range of general readers as well as Lincoln aficionados. The special strengths that lift this work above other biographies include a brilliant analysis of Lincoln's principal speeches and writings, which were an important weapon in his political leadership and statesmanship, and on which Ronald C. White is the foremost expert, having written two major books on Lincoln's speeches and writings. Another strength is White's analysis of Lincoln's evolving religious convictions, which shaped the core of his effective leadership, his moral integrity. White's discussion of Lincoln's changing attitudes and policies with respect to slavery and race is also a key aspect of this biography. Amid all the books on Lincoln . this one will stand out as one of the best."—James M. McPherson"In this excellent biography, veteran historian White emphasizes that Lincoln was our most likable major president, lacking Washington's aloofness and the deviousness of FDR and Jefferson. Contrary to the common view that Lincoln was a dark-horse for the 1860 presidential nomination after a single, undistinguished term in the House of Representatives, White stresses that Lincoln was an experienced politician, popular throughout Illinois, and known to national leaders. Few Republicans thought they had chosen badly. White knows his subject cold and writes lucid prose, so readers choosing this as their Lincoln bicentennial reading will not go wrong."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) 796.

Descrizione libro Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2010. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Looking for a comprehensive birth-to-death bio? This is the answer." -- USA Today "Does the world really need another Lincoln bio? White''s exhaustive yet accessible work tips the scales to yes." -- People "This thoroughly researched book belongs on the A-list of major biographies of the tall Illinoisian; it''s a worthy companion for all who admire Lincoln''s prose and his ability to see into, and explain, America''s greatest crisis." -- The Washington Post Book World "This brilliant account of the man and his times will be the standard for biographers." -- San Francisco Chronicle "A page-turner . . . White has managed a complex narrative with the ease and zest of the novelist." -- The Buffalo News "While this is a serious, weighty book, it''s also enormously readable, illuminating Lincoln''s intellectual prowess and personal magnetism in a way we''ve rarely seen before." -- Chicago Tribune (10 Top Books About Lincoln) "Comprehensive . . . an admirable account of the life in full." -- Los Angeles Times "A vivid and readable narrative . . . [White] is that rarity: a scholar who can tell a good story." -- The Miami Herald "The torrent of Lincoln books past and present . . . means that the bar is necessarily set high. A. Lincoln . . . [is] among the most substantial new entrants." -- The Economist "Impressive." -- U.S. News & World Report "Comprehensive . . . Taking advantage of newly available resources . . . Mr. White delivers a strong narrative . . . [aimed] at the general reader." -- The Wall Street Journal "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 of Thomas Jefferson and American Lion "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''s A. Lincoln i s 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''s Abraham Lincoln: A Biography in 1952; Stephen B. Oates''s With Malice Toward None: The Life of Abraham Lincoln in 1977; and David Donald''s Lincoln in 1995-- A. Lincoln: A Biography, with its rich detail, will be the standard text for years to come. The author includes the religious connections to his subject like no other biographer. This is a remarkable Lincoln biography by an outstanding writer." --Frank J. Williams, Founding Chair of The Lincoln Forum and Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court "Lincoln''s bicentennial will bring a flood of books about the sixteenth president. Anyone seeking an expansive, thoroughly engaging biography should turn to Ronald C. White''s gracefully written na. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0812975707
