Through this in-depth look at Abraham Lincoln, both before and during his presidency, we can learn through his leadership in times of confusion, war, and dissent. The set of chapters included in this volume are based on papers that constituted part of the 2008-2009 Jepson Leadership Forum at the Jepson School of Leadership Studies at the University of Richmond.  The chapters consider Lincoln’s intellectual, moral, political, and military leadership.  The authors include the world’s foremost Lincoln scholars, including Pulitzer Prize winner Daniel Walker Howe, and Lincoln Prize winners Richard Carwardine and Douglas Wilson.

Gary L. McDowell is Professor of Leadership Studies and holders of the Tyler Haynes Interdisciplinary Chair in Leadership Studies, Political Science and Law. George R. Goethals is Professor of Leadership Studies and holder of the E. Claiborne Robins Distinguished Professorship in Leadership Studies.
