In the first multi-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln to be published in decades, Lincoln scholar Michael Burlingame offers a fresh look at the life of one of America's greatest presidents. Incorporating the field notes of earlier biographers, along with decades of research in multiple manuscript archives and long-neglected newspapers, this remarkable work will both alter and reinforce current understanding of America's sixteenth president. Volume 1 covers Lincoln's early childhood, his experiences as a farm boy in Indiana and Illinois, his legal training, and the political ambition that led to a term in Congress in the 1840s. In volume 2, Burlingame examines Lincoln's life during his presidency and the Civil War, narrating in fascinating detail the crisis over Fort Sumter and Lincoln's own battles with relentless office seekers, hostile newspaper editors, and incompetent field commanders. Burlingame also offers new interpretations of Lincoln's private life, discussing his marriage to Mary Todd and the untimely deaths of two sons to disease. But through it all -- his difficult childhood, his contentious political career, a fratricidal war, and tragic personal losses -- Lincoln preserved a keen sense of humor and acquired a psychological maturity that proved to be the North's most valuable asset in winning the Civil War. Published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth, this landmark publication establishes Burlingame as the most assiduous Lincoln biographer of recent memory and brings Lincoln alive to modern readers as never before.
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Interkulturelle Kommunikation, einseitig bedruckt, Note: 2,0, Universitat zu Koln (Institut fur Medienkultur und Theater), Veranstaltung: Medienasthetik, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Hausarbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Medienasthetik des Punk und des Hardcore. Diese ist in sofern bemerkenswert, als dass sich Punk zwar aus den Einflussen des Rock'n'Roll, Dada, Existentialismus und Pop Art vollig abseits vom Mainstream entwickelt jedoch spater mit Hardcore etwas ganz Neues hervorgebracht hat. Anfangs mit Argwohn beobachtet oder belachelt sind die Einflusse bis heute spurbar und nicht mehr wegzudenken. Da sich diese Bewegung als Gegenkultur begreift gab es auch keine Strukturen oder Institutionen mit denen man zusammen arbeiten hatte wollen oder die unterstutzend hatten sein konnen. Aus diesem Selbstverstandnis heraus wurde alles selbst gemacht und jeder durfte teilnehmen. Obwohl dieses Thema ein extrem weites Feld ist, soll im Folgenden ein grober Abriss der wichtigsten Ereignisse und Protagonisten vorgestellt werden.

"A complete view of Lincoln's life... thorough." -- Diane Cole, U.S. News & World Report
"A magisterial enterprise." -- William Safire, New York Times
"A monumental boxed effort that weighs in at 10 pounds... The result is a picture of Lincoln from all sides, in a style that is relentless but not daunting." -- Bloomberg News
"A stunning feat of research." -- Michael Bishop, Publishers Weekly
"A stunning feat of research." -- Michael F. Bishop, Publishers Weekly
"An exhaustive and stylishly written biography." -- Greg Rienzi, Gazette
"Burlingame is a towering figure in Lincoln scholarship, and students of the 16th president have been waiting for this book for years. For all his learning -- Burlingame may know more about Lincoln and his era than anyone in the world -- his take on his subject is fresh, and he doesn't gloss over Lincoln's less appealing attributes. Abraham Lincoln comes as close to being the definitive biography as anything the world has seen in decades." -- Time.com
"Burlingame very likely knows more about Lincoln than anyone who's ever lived, including Mary Todd, and his biography, 20 years in the writing, has a revelation on every page, dug out during the biographer's tireless research into musty libraries and forgotten attics that no one has ever thought to look in before. If there is anything knowable that you want to know about Lincoln, this is the place to find it." -- Andrew Ferguson, American Spectator
"If you aspire to Ultimate Lincoln Knowledge this is a must-read." -- Chicago Tribune
"The author knows more about Lincoln than any other living person." -- New York Review of Books
"The granddaddy of all the recent books [on Lincoln] is Michael Burlingame's Abraham Lincoln: A Life... monumental in size, depth and scholarship, this is the new standard biography of our time and surpasses all other life portraits of our 16th president, and is the most important book of the bicentennial." -- James L. Swanson, Washington Times
"The two-volume set is being heralded as the ultimate new biography of Lincoln, an essential work to be used by all future biographers of the 16th president." -- Anne Byle, Grand Rapids Press
"These monumental volumes deserve a wide readership." -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"This magisterial work tells a rich, thoroughly documented, birth -- to -- death story of America's greatest president. Its bulk is formidable, but it holds countless rewards for undaunted readers." -- Jane Henderson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A complete view of Lincoln's life... thorough.
A magisterial enterprise.
A stunning feat of research.
An exhaustive and stylishly written biography.
If you aspire to Ultimate Lincoln Knowledge this is a must-read.
Lincoln has, of course, been the subject of an extensive body of literature due to the unquestioned importance of his presidency, his remarkable rise from frontier hardship to commander in chief, and his composition of some of the great works of American statesmanship. Burlingame describes all of this in such an impressive fashion that even readers already very well-versed on Lincoln's life and the Civil War will find much of value here... Burlingame has set a very high bar for future students of the Great Emancipator... It is unlikely that [a study] will appear anytime soon that matches the breadth and depth of coverage found in Burlingame's study, or challenges its place as the outstanding multi-volume account of Lincoln's life.
Most thorough account of the development of Lincoln as a man and politician against the backdrop of America's struggle to mature as an idea and a nation... Not a Lincoln for our times, but the Lincoln of his times, and future biographers would do well to take note(s).
No review could do complete justice to the magnificent two-volume biography that has been so well-wrought by Michael Burlingame.
The author knows more about Lincoln than any other living person.
The bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth has generated a plethora of Lincoln-related items, but none impresses more than this two-volume biography... Essential.
These monumental volumes deserve a wide readership.
This book supplants [Carl] Sandburg and supersedes all other biographies. Future Lincoln books cannot be written without it, and from no other book can a general reader learn so much about Abraham Lincoln. It is the essential title for the bicentennial.
This magisterial work tells a rich, thoroughly documented, birth-to-death story of America's greatest president. Its bulk is formidable, but it holds countless rewards for undaunted readers.
