One of the most important works on Abraham Lincoln from the era when he was passing out of living memory and into history, this 1917 classic is a rich, evocative portrait of the man and how actions as a leader were shaped by his character and ideals. From its British perspective, offering a fresh angle on an American legend, to its charming readability, Charnwood's treatise-which was called, in 1947, "the best one-volume life of Lincoln ever written" by historian Benjamin Thomas-today remains one of the most intriguing examinations of the great president, and a keystone for understanding the evolution of Lincoln scholarship. British author and academic GODFREY RATHBONE BENSON, 1st Baron Charnwood (1864-1945) also wrote the biography *Theodore Roosevelt* (1923).

From the Back Cover:

No other narrative account of Abraham Lincoln's life has inspired such widespread acclaim as Lord Charnwood's Abraham Lincoln: a biography. Many contemporary historians consider this thorough and superbly crafted work the quintessential biography of one of America's greatest presidents. Written by a native of England and originally published in 1916, the biography is a rare blend of beautiful prose and profound historical insight. Charnwood's study of Lincoln's statemanship introduced generations of Americans to the life and politics of Lincoln, and the author's observations are so comprehensive and well supported that any serious study of Lincoln must respond to his conclusions. This is essential reading for anyone interested in Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, or American political history.

About the Author:

Charnwood was born in England, was a member of the British Parliament as a liberal, where he supported home rule for Ireland.
