Lincoln in the World

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Kevin Peraino explains how Abraham Lincoln evolved into one of our seminal foreign-policy presidents and helped point the way to America’s rise to world power. Lincoln had never traveled overseas and spoke no foreign languages, yet, during the Civil War, Lincoln and his team skillfully managed to avoid European intervention on the side of the Confederacy. In Lincoln in the World, Kevin Peraino reveals Lincoln to be an indispensable diplomat.
