In this, his last work, J. David Greenstone provides an important new analysis of American liberalism and of Lincolns unique contribution to the nations political life. Greenstone addresses Louis Hartzs well-known claim that a tradition of liberal consensus has characterized American political life from the time of the founders. Although he acknowledges the force of Hartzs thesis, Greenstone nevertheless finds it inadequate for explaining prominent instances of American political discord, most notably the Civil War.Originally published in 1993.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
