(2005) 757 pgs. Very good telling of Abraham Lincoln's life from the time that he runs for Congress up to his death. Adds perspective of his main rivals in the Republican Party - Seward, Chase & Bates.

This book will probably not be remembered as one of Kearns Goodwin's better efforts. Little of the research appears new or enthralling. The lessons for current political parties are pretty well understood. The role of the press as independent arbiter of public policy is nothing new. That said, I must admit to having enjoyed being in the company of William Howard Taft, a character I had little knowledge of before reading this book. Taft helped Roosevelt contain the trusts, the huge conglomerates who controlled the railroads, the production and distribution of oil, food production, and steel. Both men played a significant role in the way the US government behaves today. America had changed dramatically from the Civil War until Woodrow Wilson's election in 1912. Rockefeller, Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt all played large roles in the industrialisation of America during this period.

As always, DKG tells it like a story AND marshals the historical facts, synthesizing a great and illuminating read that easily holds your interest. FDR, Eleanor, Churchill, Stalin, and all the other players come to life as they participate in the great events of the time. Goodwin captures the flaws and the missteps as well as the heroic and brilliant actions.

A well described history of Franklin D Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor Roosevelt. An interesting view of the time of the second world war from the American point of view.
