This is H. Jack Lang's original selection of Abraham Lincoln's most interesting speeches and letters, from his first public position as postmaster in Illinois to the highest political office in the land. We read his witty testimonials, sharp commentaries, clever social correspondence, astute handling of angry generals and cabinet officers, and above all, his wisdom in motivating political supporters and defusing challengers -- all of which show a sagacity in politics, an eloquence of simple rhetoric, and an invariable gentlemanliness rarely seen in public life today. Lincoln was the first of the "great communicator" presidents. His words are as much alive today as when he uttered them 150 years ago. - Back cover.
