Abraham Lincoln and Civil War America

A Biography

William E. Gienapp

  • Lincoln is one of the most intriguing and memorable figures in American history. Debate still surrounds his beliefs and policies today.
  • Author is a Lincoln expert.
  • Equally suitable for the general audience, and as a text for college courses due to its short length.
  • "Abraham Lincoln and Civil War America is the best brief biography of Lincoln that I have read. Briskly written, concise, and informed by the latest scholarship, it is destined to become a standard book in its field." David Herbert Donald, Charles Warren Professor of American History Emeritus, Harvard University and author of Lincoln
  • This is a notoriously crowded field, but other books on Lincoln aren't as brief or readable.
