Book Summary:

Lincoln's 1858 race against Stephen Douglas for the Senate was the only documented campaign of his political career. In The Art of the Campaign: How Lincoln Won the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, Kevin O'Brien shows how Lincoln, far from running a timid or reactive race, as convention has it, crafted a bold strategy against his famous adversary. In framing Douglas as an "instrument" for the spread of slavery, despite his professions of neutrality, Lincoln left no stone unturned. He was equally comfortable parsing the dangerous logic of Douglas's ideas or mocking his personal obtuseness on slavery, drawing out the alarming implications of the Dred Scott decision or reinterpreting Douglas's off-hand remarks and campaign jokes. O'Brien follows the course of the Senate campaign as it unfolded, culminating in the joint debates. He shows how Lincoln, after a shaky start, won the debates by every measure except the obvious one. Lincoln lost the election, narrowly and arbitrarily, but by outperforming Douglas handily, he vaulted to national prominence. Armed with a new speaking style, unadorned and "honest," Lincoln also reinforced that slavery was not just a southern problem, as many antislavery northerners believed. If Douglas was "preparing the public mind" for the further spread of slavery, as Lincoln charged in the Galesburg debate, then the North was in danger of becoming an accomplice. Ideas would have to combat ideas, and there could be no middle ground. The Art of the Campaign reveals a campaigner who, by the end of the debates, ranged freely from historical principles to minute details of personality and style to define "the real issue" between the two candidates. Lincoln's performance is a sharp contrast to the superficial and predictable political campaigns of our own day.

Book Summary:

Excerpt from Lincoln-Douglas Debate American history, reveals human nature deal= ing with momentous problems, and illuminates the methods by which the great art of public speech is used to influence public conduct in a great epoch. Because Lincoln and Douglas, in the course of the debate, each made references to their past records, it is necessary to have in mind the brief sketch, here given, of the life history of each. And because the debate was on the questions of slavery, and referred so frequently to the history of that question, it is necessary to here give first a very brief review of at least those facts, in the history of slavery, to which the speakers refer. The speakers inferred that their hearers had fresh in memory the recent history of slavery agitation and legislation, and, accordingly, we here offer a narration of such facts as are necessary to understand the mean ing of the debate, before giving the debate it self. Therefore, this volume presents, first, a brief sketch of each debater, just sufficient to under stand the references in the debate; second, just enough of the history of the slavery question to comprehend the allusions of the speakers; third, the circumstances attending the debate along with the chief arguments and replies of each speaker; fourth, the major and important portions of the speeches of Lincoln and of Doug las are given in the exact words of the speaker.

Book Summary:

Although Abraham Lincoln was among seven presidents who served during the tumultuous years between the end of the Mexican War and the end of the Reconstruction era, history has not been kind to the others: Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, and Ulysses S. Grant. In contrast, history sees Abraham Lincoln as a giant in character and deeds. During his presidency, he governed brilliantly, developed the economy, liberated four million people from slavery, reunified the nation, and helped enact the Homestead Act, among other accomplishments. He proved to be not only an outstanding commander in chief but also a skilled diplomat, economist, humanist, educator, and moralist. Lincoln achieved that and more because he was a master of the art of American power. He understood that the struggle for hearts and minds was the essence of politics in a democracy. He asserted power mostly by appealing to peopleÆs hopes rather than their fears. All along he tried to shape rather than reflect prevailing public opinions that differed from his own. To that end, he was brilliant at bridging the gap between progressives and conservatives by reining in the former and urging on the latter. His art of power ultimately reflected his unswerving devotion to the Declaration of IndependenceÆs principles and the ConstitutionÆs institutions, or as he so elegantly expressed it, ôto a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.ö

Book Summary:

While the debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas are undoubtedly the most celebrated in American history, they may also be the most consequential as well. For the issues so fiercely debated in 1858 were about various interrelated aspects of one momentous, nation-threatening issue: slavery. The contest between Lincoln and Douglas became a testing ground for the viability of conflicting ideals in a nation deeply divided. One of the most colorful and engaging episodes in American history, this series of debates is of enduring interest as an illuminating instance of the ever-recurring dilemma of self-government: what happens when the guiding principle of democracy, "popular sovereignty," confronts a principled stand against a "moral, social, and political evil"? The tragic answer in this case came three years later: civil war. Important as they are, the Lincoln-Douglas debates have long since ceased to be self-explanatory. This edition is the first to provide a text founded on all known records, rather than following one or another of the partisan and sometimes widely-varying newspaper accounts. Meticulously edited and annotated, it provides numerous aids to help the modern reader understand the debates, including extensive introductory material, commentary, and a glossary. The fullest and most dependable edition of the Lincoln-Douglas debates ever prepared, this edition brings readers as close as possible to the original words of these two remarkable men.
