Description
Focusing in on Lincoln as the central axis of the story and as the in-the-moment reporter about the seemingly unstoppable trend toward war, One Man Great Enough details the shattering of America's political landscape and its grappling with the moral underpinnings of a Republic of the people, by the people, and for the people.

display_description From the author of The Class of 1846: "A swift-paced narrative of Lincoln's pre-presidential life." -The Washington Post Book World The award-winning historian John C. Waugh takes us on Lincoln's road to the Civil War. From Lincoln's first public rejection of slavery to his secret arrival in the capital, from his stunning debates with Stephen Douglas to his more contemplative moments, Waugh shows us America as Lincoln saw it and as Lincoln described it. Much of this wonderful story is told by Lincoln himself, detailing through his own writing his emergence onto the political scene and the evolution of his beliefs about the Union, the Constitution, democracy, slavery, and the buildup to the Civil War. In this acclaimed biography, Waugh brings us ever closer to understanding this mysterious, complicated, and truly great man.
