On Hallowed Ground: Abraham Lincoln and the Foundations of American History
Yale University Press, 2000 - 330页
In this book, John Patrick Diggins, hailed by Alan Ryan in the New York Times, offers a sweeping reassessment of American history, emphasizing the foundational role of Abraham Lincoln’s moral and political theory. Distressed by the divisive impact of modern identity politics, Diggins argues persuasively that in the central tenets of Lincoln’s political faith-the redeeming value of labor and the rights to property and self-determination-we find the purest expression of the values that have united Americans and guided American history.
