Lincoln Unbound

How an Ambitious Young Railsplitter Saved the American Dream---And How We Can Do It Again

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Lincoln Unbound is a thoughtful mix of history and politics from Rich Lowry, the New York Times bestselling author and editor of National Review, which traces Abraham Lincoln’s ambitious climb from provincial upstart to political powerhouse.

Revered across the political spectrum, President Lincoln believed in a small but active government in a nation defined by aspiration. He embraced the market and the amazing transportation and communications revolutions beginning to take hold. He helped give birth to the modern industrial economy.

Abraham Lincoln’s vision of an upwardly mobile society that rewards and supports individual striving was wondrously realized. Now, it is under threat. To meet these challenges, conservative columnist Rich Lowry draws us back to the lessons of Lincoln. It is imperative, he argues, to preserve a fluid economy that makes it possible for individuals to thrive and live the American dream.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 29, 2013 – In this agenda-heavy history, Lowry examines the 16th president's life and political career in an effort to mobilize his story in service of furthering modern conservative values. The bulk of the book is light biography, told through potent and inspirational chapters of Lincoln's life: as a self-educated frontiersman, then a traveling lawyer, and finally superlative leader of the United States. Then comes Lowry's interpretation, which, while critical of both ends of the political spectrum, is generally right-leaning unsurprising given his credentials as editor of the National Review and commentator for Fox News. Lowry's Lincoln is interested in maintaining an infrastructure that best allows the individual to pursue personal betterment via industriousness and self-motivation. His Honest Abe would be "delighted by the rise of Silicon Valley," would welcome immigrants, "probably favor drilling, mining, and fracking to the utmost," and vote "aye" for the disbanding of teachers' unions. This is a patriotic call to arms, one man's political beliefs aided by a dead president. Only problem is, Honest Abe can't contest.
