Lincoln's Political Thought.pdf
At the center of Lincoln's political thought and career is an intense passion for equality that runs so deep in the speeches, messages, and letters that it has the force of religious conviction for Lincoln. George Kateb examines these writings to reveal that this passion explains Lincoln's reverence for both the Constitution and the Union.
I have read quite a few Lincoln books over the past few years, and "Lincoln s Political Thought" is the most enjoyable. For those who know Kateb s work and I have been a fan of his for a long time all of his characteristic flourishes are here on display.--Steven Smith, editor of "The Writings of Abraham Lincoln""
