Summary, etc.: Lincoln scholar Ronald C. White, Jr., offers a fresh definition of Lincoln as a man of integrity--what today's commentators would call "authenticity"--whose moral compass holds the key to understanding his life. Through meticulous research of the newly completed Lincoln Legal Papers, as well as of recently discovered letters and photographs, White provides a portrait of Lincoln's personal, political, and moral evolution. White shows us Lincoln as a man who would leave a trail of thoughts in his wake, jotting ideas on scraps of paper; a country lawyer who asked questions in order to figure out his own thinking on an issue; a president embarked on a religious odyssey; a man of intellectual curiosity, comfortable with ambiguity, unafraid to "think anew and act anew."--From publisher description.
