Winner of the Lincoln Prize Acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin illuminates Lincoln s political genius in this highly original work as the one term congressman and prairie lawyer rises from obscurity to prevail over three gifted rivals of national reputation to become president On May 18 1860 William H Seward Salmon P Chase Edward Bates and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago When Lincoln emerged as the victor his rivals were dismayed and angry Throughout the turbulent 1850s each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war That Lincoln succeeded Goodwin demonstrates was the result of a character that had been forged by experiences that raised him above his more privileged and accomplished rivals He won because he possessed an extraordinary ability to put himself in the place of other men to experience what they were feeling to understand their motives and desires It was this capacity that enabled Lincoln as president to bring his disgruntled opponents together create the most unusual cabinet in history and marshal their talents to the task of preserving the Union and winning the war We view the long horrifying struggle from the vantage of the White House as Lincoln copes with incompetent generals hostile congressmen and his raucous cabinet He overcomes these obstacles by winning the respect of his former competitors and in the case of Seward finds a loyal and crucial friend to see him through This brilliant multiple biography is centered on Lincoln s mastery of men and how it shaped the most significant presidency in the nation s history

Written by the author of the Maneuver Warfare Handbook and an active duty USMC officer with experience in Iraq 4th Generation Warfare Handbook is the doctrine for a new generation of war Over the last 40 years the world has gradually entered into a post Clausewitzian state where the wars are undeclared the battlefields can be anywhere the uniforms are optional and the combatants as well as the targets are often civilian Conventional militaries have repeatedly attempted to utilize technology to meet the new challenges posed but even the most advanced technology has provided little more than meaningless short term victories rendered futile in months if not weeks This inability of Western governments and militaries to come to terms with the changing nature of modern warfare has led to failed interventions failed occupations and now even failed states everywhere from Eastern Europe to Africa Asia and the Middle East And with the recent mass movement of peoples around the world 4th Generation Warfare can be safely expected to appear in Western Europe and the United States before long Drawing on their decades of experience with military history and military action the authors have distilled 4GW theory into a short concise easily accessible handbook that provides the soldier the military analyst and the civilian observer with a guide to understanding and responding to the changing realities of this challenging new form of war
