"An eloquent work. Its authority comes both from its esthetic - photographs speak more powerfully today than paintings - and from the sophistication with which Mr. Freedman's text combines personal and public lives into a human portrait of a politician honorably confronting the most vexing issues of his era. From the opening page, which depicts Lincoln in beak-nosed profile...to the homely inventory of the assassinated President's pockets...this biography feels astonishingly real."-The New York Times Book Review. Includes an Index.
