"Crisis of the House Divided" is the standard historiography of the Lincoln-Douglas debates. Harry Jaffa provides the definitive analysis of the political principles that guided Lincoln from his re-entry into politics in 1854 through his Senate campaign against Douglas in 1858. ""Crisis of the House Divided" has shaped the thought of a generation of Abraham Lincoln and Civil War scholars."--Mark E. Needly, Jr., "Civil War History" "An important book about one of the great episodes in the history of the sectional controversy. It breaks new ground and opens a new view of Lincoln's significance as a political thinker."--T. Harry Williams, "Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences" "A searching and provocative analysis of the issues confronted and the ideas expounded in the great debates. . . . A book which displays such learning and insight that it cannot fail to excite the admiration even of scholars who disagree with its major arguments and conclusions."--D. E. Fehrenbacher, "American Historical Review"

Good in Good jacket. This old book with dust jacket is clean, solid, and in good shape! This is a hardcover book with 451 pages. The binding is strong with all pages firmly attached. The pages are clean with no soiling or tears. The prior owner has annotated a few passages throughout. There are a few small spots on the covers. The dust jacket is over 99% intact with a couple tiny chips at the corners (more like edgewear). This is definitely NOT a former library book. The DJ has been placed in a fresh mylar jacket.
