Description
Generations of Americans have debated the meaning of Abraham Lincoln's views on race and slavery. He issued the Emancipation Proclamation and supported a constitutional amendment to outlaw slavery, yet he also harbored grave doubts about the intellectual capacity of African Americans and favored permanent racial segregation. Henry Louis Gates Jr. presents the full range of Lincoln's views here, gathered from his private letters, speeches, official documents, and even race jokes, arranged chronologically from the late 1830s to the 1860s.

"An essential volume for anyone who knows Lincoln or, more crucially, thinks he knows Lincoln, this eye-opening collection—so carefully selected, judiciously edited, and wisely assembled—fully evokes the complexities of the mid-19th century and its most famous American personality.... A dazzling piece of original, provocative, and in the end deeply felt scholarship."—Harold Holzer
