Ronald C. White, Jr.

Ronald C. White, Jr.small-lincolncoverIn the first comprehensive, single-volume biography since David Herbert Donald's in 1996, Ronald White offers a fresh definition of Lincoln as a man of integrity whose moral compass holds the key to understanding his life. Using newly available resources such as the Lincoln Legal Papers and recently discovered letters and photographs, White shows Lincoln's personal, political and moral evolution.

Ronald C. White, Jr. is the author of two bestselling books on Abraham Lincoln: The Eloquent President and Lincoln's Greatest Speech, a New York Times Notable Book. White earned his Ph.D. at Princeton and has lectured on Lincoln at hundreds of universities and organizations, at Gettysburg and the White House.
