Concise Lincoln Library

Series Editors, Richard W. Etulain and Sylvia Frank Rodrigue

Short, fresh, accessible books on the life, times, and legacy of Abraham Lincoln

This exciting series brings together expert scholars to elaborate on the life, times, and legacy of Abraham Lincoln. Through short, focused books, each concentrating on a different area of Lincoln’s life and career, the Concise Lincoln Library brings fresh perspectives to well-known topics, investigates previously overlooked subjects, and explores in greater depth topics that have not yet received book-length treatment.

Each book gives readers the opportunity to quickly achieve basic knowledge of a Lincoln-related topic. In an effort to make new scholarship accessible to the widest audience possible, the books carry minimal endnotes and historiography and are written in a style that is easy for anyone to understand. In-depth yet accessible, the Concise Lincoln Library appeals to both the novice and the Lincoln scholar.


“Southern Illinois University Press’s Concise Lincoln Library series, which will extend to approximately 30 volumes when completed, is an excellent series of compact books. The premise of the series is to give readers the opportunity to quickly engage at a sophisticated level with selected Lincoln topics by noted Lincoln scholars. I own all volumes and haven’t been disappointed by a single one of them.”—Tom Peet, author of Reading Lincoln
