Southern Illinois University Press maintains its position as one of the leading publishers on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War Era with this series dedicated to short and engaging works on Lincoln. Although the books in this series usually number under one hundred fifty pages, they are written by leading scholars in the field and highlight a remarkable array of political, social, ideological, and personal aspects of Lincoln's life. The series aims to appeal to both the well-versed Lincoln enthusiast and the newcomer alike, and the far-ranging topics spotlighted by these books—sweeping across the complexities of Lincoln's wartime decisions or intimately focusing on his courtship and marriage to Mary Todd of Lexington, Kentucky—provide plenty of options for readers to pick and choose their desired subjects.
