The words of Abraham Lincoln have been immortalized in speeches and enshrined in policies and practices, and none of those words, spoken or written, has gone unnoticed or wanted for a response. It is this broader context-the wider conversation about Lincoln's words-that this book discusses. The final project of James A. Rawley, a preeminent historian of the Civil War era, A Lincoln Dialogue cross-examines Lincoln's major statements, papers, and initiatives in light of the comments and criticism of his supporters and detractors.
Drawn from letters and newspapers, pamphlets and reports, these statements and responses constitute a unique documentary examination of Abraham Lincoln's presidency. Rawley's careful selection and his judicious interweaving of historical analysis and background invite us into the dialogue and allow us to hear the voices of American history in the making.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A Lincoln Dialogue] is a unique look at Abraham Lincoln's presidency."-James E. Potter, Nebraska History -- James E. Potter * Nebraska History *
"Thomas has done devotees of Abraham Lincoln a service by bringing Rawley's manuscript to publication."-John F. Marszalek, Journal of Southern History -- John F. Marszalek * Journal of Southern History *

"There is no [other] work that provides the extensive and complete documents selected for this book. Rawley's unique approach will make a significant contribution to the existing literature."-Charles M. Hubbard, executive director of the Abraham Lincoln Institute for the Study of Leadership and Public Policy at Lincoln Memorial University

-- Charles M. Hubbard

"This is a truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind, book. The product of decades of passionate work, A Lincoln Dialogue somehow feels as current as the newest social media. Interweaving powerful documents with eloquent commentary, the story here evokes the tumultuous years of Lincoln's presidency in ways more conventional books simply cannot. The story unfolds before us with surprises at every turn, familiar events suddenly made unfamiliar by new voices and new angles of vision."-Edward L. Ayers, president of the University of Richmond and author of In the Presence of Mine Enemies: Civil War in the Heart of America

-- Edward Ayers
