Topics:
  • David S. Reynolds on his new biography Abe: Abraham Lincoln in His Times -
Synopsis:

Abraham Lincoln did not come out of nowhere.

But if the 16th US president was shaped by his times, he also managed at his life's fateful hour to shape them to an extent few could have foreseen.

What emerges in “Abe: Abraham Lincoln in His Times,” the new book by David S. Reynolds, professor of American studies at the CUNY Graduate Center, is a man who at each stage in his life managed to arrive at a broader view of things than all but his most enlightened peers.

Join us for a look at a President whose name continues to be brought up by major politicians in both parties in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
