The Real Lincoln
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

A revisionist-libertarian interpretation of Lincolnís administration. It makes the case that Lincoln was a dictator and a monster. His lifelong political goals were federally financed railroads and other public works financed by a national bank and high tariffs. He accomplished all of these by waging war against the Confederacy. The book is repetitive and needs to be edited, but it makes its case clearly and forcefully.

Year Read: 2004
