David S. Reynolds, author of the Bancroft Prize-winning cultural biography of Walt Whitman and many other iconic works of nineteenth century American history, understands the currents in which Abraham Lincoln swam as well as anyone alive.

His magisterial biography "Abe" is the product of full-body immersion into the riotous tumult of American life in the decades before the Civil War.
