The ideal concise biography of an American icon- now available in paperback for the bicentennial of his birth"Keneally's excellent brief biography benefits from the compression and from the dramatic value of crisp wording and sharpness of detail."

In this outstanding biography, award-winning author Thomas Keneally follows Lincoln from his impoverished birth through his education and presidency. From the development of his political philosophy to his troubled family life and his actions during the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln is an incisive study of a turning point in our history and a revealing portrait of a pivotal figure.
