The Complete Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858 (Paperback, New edition): Abraham Lincoln, Stephen A. Douglas The Complete Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858 (Paperback, New edition)
Abraham Lincoln, Stephen A. Douglas; Edited by Paul McClelland Angle; Foreword by David Zarefsky
R630 Discovery Miles 6 300 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Lincoln-Douglas debates remain our culture's model of what public political debate ought to be. This new edition of the complete transcripts of the debates and eyewitness interpretations of them (previously published under the title "Created Equal?") includes a new Foreword by David Zarefsky.
Zarefsky analyzes the rhetoric of the speeches, showing how Lincoln and Douglas chose their arguments and initiated a debate that shook the nation. Their eloquent, statesmanlike discussion of the morality of slavery illustrates the masterful use of rhetorical strategies and tactics in the public forum: a form of discourse that has nearly disappeared from the political scene today.

The Writings of Abraham Lincoln (Paperback): Steven B. Smith The Writings of Abraham Lincoln (Paperback)
Steven B. Smith; Abraham Lincoln
R461 Discovery Miles 4 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Abraham Lincoln never wrote a book: his ideas are contained in speeches, letters, and various occasional writings. By bringing these works together into a single anthology, this book shows that Lincoln deserves to be counted among the great political philosophers. In addition to many examples of Lincoln's writings, this volume includes four interpretive essays that will provide an intellectual feast for any reader exploring his complex legacy. Danilo Petranovich looks at Lincoln's conception of the Union and its radically new focus on purging the nation of the problem of slavery. Ralph Lerner reconsiders Lincoln's relation to the American framers and in particular his effort to put the Declaration of Independence on a new foundation. Benjamin Kleinerman examines Lincoln's always controversial views on the scope of executive power during war. And Steven Smith considers the place of religion in Lincoln's political thought through a close reading of his Second Inaugural Address.
