Review:

Harold Holzer

Chicago Tribune

""Lincoln immediately takes its place among the best of the genre, and it is unlikely that it will be surpassed in elegance, incisiveness and originality in this century. . . . A book of investigative tenacity, interpretive boldness and almost acrobatic balance."

James M. McPherson

The Atlantic Monthly

"Eagerly awaited, "Lincoln" fulfills expectations. Donald writes with lucidity and elegance."

David W. Blight

Los Angeles Times

"A one-volume study of Lincoln's life that will augment and replace the previous modern standards by Benjamin Thomas (1953) and Stephen Oates (1977). Donald's "Lincoln" is a scholarly achievement."

Harold Holzer

Chicago Tribune

""Lincoln" immediately takes its place among the best of the genre, and it is unlikely that it will be surpassed in elegance, incisiveness and originality in this century. . . . A book of investigative tenacity, interpretive boldness and almost acrobatic balance."

Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

"A grand work--the Lincoln biography for this generation."
