Stephen A. Douglas by Robert W. Johannsen


Stephen A. Douglas by Robert W. Johannsen


At once a work of enormous scholarship and of deep insight. Here, for the first time, is the full story of a great career, told with such skill that we can now understand why Abraham Lincoln found the 'Little Giant
the most formidable political rival he ever faced.

-- David H. Donald, author of Lincoln and two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
