This edition of Rawley's Lincoln biography, originally published in 1996, offers a new introduction by the author. Following a survey of the pre-presidential years, the text concentrates on the themes of Lincoln's nationalism, his discovery of the immense power conferred upon him as commander-in-chief by the Constitution, and the sense of purpose taken from the realization that he was the sole figure elected by the nation.
