In Lincoln Lessons, seventeen of today’s most respected academics, historians, lawyers, and politicians provide candid reflections on the importance of Abraham Lincoln in their intellectual lives. Their essays, gathered by editors Frank J. Williams and William D. Pederson, shed new light on this political icon’s remarkable ability to lead and inspire two hundred years after his birth.

Collected here are glimpses into Lincoln’s unique ability to transform enemies into steadfast allies, his deeply ingrained sense of morality and intuitive understanding of humanity, his civil deification as the first assassinated American president, and his controversial suspension of habeas corpus during the Civil War. The contributors also discuss Lincoln’s influence on today’s emerging democracies, his lasting impact on African American history, and his often-overlooked international legend—his power to instigate change beyond the boundaries of his native nation. While some contributors provide a scholarly look at Lincoln and some take a more personal approach, all explore his formative influence in their lives. What emerges is the true history of his legacy in the form of first-person testaments from those whom he has touched deeply.

Lincoln Lessons brings together some of the best voices of our time in a unique combination of memoir and history. This singular volume of original essays is a tribute to the enduring inspirational powers of an extraordinary man whose courage and leadership continue to change lives today.

An enjoyable small book (174 pages) featuring seventeen short essays on The Great Emancipator. Essays are provided by politicians - Mario Cuomo, Legal Eagles - Sandra Day O'Connor, Historians - Doris Kearns Goodwin and many others who have been influenced by Lincoln.

As with most books on Lincoln, the material is hagiographic and rarely critical. Kearns Goodwin encapsulates her fine book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln in a few short pages, although I think she has zero sense of objectivity about the man.

Sandra Day O'Connor's essay on the Suspension of Habeas Corpus in clear layman's English is interesting and suggests that even in the direst situation that Lincoln only used it for military purposes and not to dispose of political enemies.

The most interesting essay is on Mary Lincoln. Historian Jean Baker dispels myths about a woman long presented as an eccentric, over-spending, cold-hearted woman. While she was no angel, she was badly served by a nation and particularly her son Robert who had her committed to a mental institution with little justification.

If you are looking for a number of different reflections by Lincoln authorities, this is the book for you. However, don't expect a high degree of objectivity.
