THE FIERY TRIAL
Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery
Historian Eric Foner portrays Lincoln, a pragmatic politician grounded in principle, deftly navigating the dynamic politics of antislavery, secession, and civil war. Lincoln’s greatness ultimately emerges from his capacity for moral and political growth. "No one else has written about [Lincoln’s] trajectory of change with such balance, fairness, depth of analysis, and lucid precision of language," says Pulitzer Prize–winning historian James M. McPherson.
