Product Details


“A satisfying new look at one of the most written-about political figures in American history. . . An admirable addition to Lincolniana.” Kirkus

“Abraham Lincoln’s ambidextrous political acumen is the focus of journalist and public radio personality Inskeep (Imperfect Union) . . . The energetic narrative and intriguing cast of characters keep things moving . . . Lincoln buffs will relish this unique account.” Publishers Weekly

“Abraham Lincoln, America’s greatest president, comes freshly alive in Steve Inskeep’s brilliant rendering of his interactions with many individuals, famous and obscure, of varied backgrounds and viewpoints. Inskeep’s Lincoln is flexible, witty, and wise–sometimes cagey but always rock-solid in his principles. Differ We Must is a read-we-must in a time when America is almost as divided as it was in Lincoln’s era.” —David S. Reynolds, author of Abe: Abraham Lincoln in His Times

“Lincoln was an artful politician capable of portraying himself differently to different people. Yet he rose to the level of statesman. Steve Inskeep captures the artfulness and the ascent in this fascinating, insightful account of Lincoln’s dealings with sixteen of his contemporaries—men and women whose cooperation he solicited, whose opposition he parried, and whose diversity informed the more inclusive republic he did so much to create.” —H.W. Brands, author of The Zealot and the Emancipator
