Description
During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln proved to be an uncommonly wise statesman and a capable commander-in-chief. What is less well known, suggests Kevin Peraino, is that this lawyer from what was then the American hinterland was also an intuitive diplomat, skillfully averting European intervention on the side of the Confederacy. Featuring such colorful characters as Cassius Marcellus Clay, Lincoln's bowie-knife-wielding minister to Russia; the cunning French empress, Eugénie; and the hapless Mexican monarch Maximilian, this history depicts an America making some of its earliest steps toward becoming a world power.

"Kevin Peraino is a major new historical talent, combining the sensibility of a gifted writer and storyteller with a keen analytic intelligence. You may think you know all you need to know about Abraham Lincoln, but in this lucid and compelling new book, you will discover that you've only heard half the story. Here is the Lincoln who looked abroad, struggling with, and ultimately shaping, America's role in the world."—Jon Meacham
