Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Herbert Donald, Lincoln biographer and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, has revised and updated his classic and influential book on Lincoln and the era he dominated.

When Lincoln Reconsidered was first published it ushered in the process of rethinking the Civil War that continues to this day. In the third edition, David provides two important new essays, on Lincoln's patchy education—which we find was more extensive than even the great man realized—and on Lincoln's complex and conflicted relationship to the rule of law. Together with a new preface and a thoroughly updated bibliographical essay, Lincoln Reconsidered will continue to be a touchstone of Lincoln scholarship for decades to come.

Synopsis:

David Herbert Donald will be a commentator for the PBS American Experience series "Abraham and Mary Lincoln: A House Divided" focusing on Abraham Lincoln — his rise to power and tenure as one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history — and the woman who helped him achieve greatness.
