"In this stimulating book, several of America's and Britain's leading Civil War historians and Lincoln biographers pool their talents to offer fresh interpretations of Abraham Lincoln's qualities of leadership. Readers will gain new insights on the Lincoln administration and discover principles of leadership also applicable to other crises." - James M. McPherson, Professor Emeritus of History, Princeton University
"George Goethals and Gary McDowell have collected riveting new scholarship from some of the country s best historians for what constitutes an essential and inspiring primer on American leadership. Few collections so usefully offer the lessons of the past as a guide to the challenges of the future. Both the editors and the University of Richmond s Jepson School of Leadership, which commissioned these thoughtful essays, have made an outstanding contribution to the Lincoln bicentennial." - Harold Holzer, Co-Chairman, U.S. Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
