|This companion book to the major motion picture has leading historians answering the question: OWhat Would Lincoln Do?O|
From the Publisher:
The First American. Frontiersman and backwoods attorney. Teller of bawdy tales and a spellbinding orator. A champion of liberty some called a would-be tyrant. Savior of the Union and the Great Emancipator. All these are Abraham Lincoln?in his time America?s most admired and reviled leader, and still our nation?s most enigmatic and captivating hero.||Timed to complement the new motion picture Lincoln, directed by Steven Spielberg, Lincoln: A President for the Ages introduces a new Lincoln grappling with some of history?s greatest challenges. Would Lincoln have dropped the bomb on Hiroshima? How would he conduct the War on Terror? Would he favor women?s suffrage or gay rights? Would today?s Lincoln be a star on Facebook and Twitter? Would he embrace the religious right?or denounce it?||The answers come from an all-star array of historians and scholars, including Jean Baker, Richard Carwardine, Dan Farber, Andrew Ferguson, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Allen C. Guelzo, Harold Holzer, James Malanowski, James Tackach, Frank J. Williams, and Douglas L. Wilson. Lincoln also features actor/activist Gloria Reuben describing how she played Elizabeth Keckley, the former-slave-turned-confidante of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln; and a selection of speeches and letters that explore little-known sides of Lincoln; ?The Faces of Lincoln,? exploring his complex contemporary legacy.||Whether you?re a lifetime admirer of Lincoln or newly intrigued by his story, Lincoln: A President for the Ages offers a fascinating glimpse of his many-sided legacy.|This companion to the upcoming motion picture asks historians and experts on the 16th president to imagine the man's high principles and selflessness in other eras and speculate on his handling of World War II and the Civil Rights movement.
