Summary
America's greatest president, Abraham Lincoln towers above all others who have held the office. His presidency is the hinge on which American history pivots, the time when the young republic collapsed of its own contradictions but emerged after a bloody conflict with a new birth of freedom. Lincoln's story has been told many times, but never before by a man who himself sought the office of the president and contemplated its awesome responsibilities
