    1 thought on “Lincoln's Constitution

    1. Such a very interesting and well-done book. And it deals with such important topics. Abraham Lincoln is justly revered for many good reasons, but he is often criticized for taking unconstitutional action during the Civil War. This book looks at Lincoln’s actions and analyzes them, both under the existing constitutional thought of his time and later constitutional developments. Farber does a very good job at it.The first half of the book addresses the secession crisis and the arguments that swi [...]

    2. A book about the constitutional issues that President Lincoln faced during his term in office, in light of current Constitutional theory.Overall, I found that the author went to great lengths to be consistent with the hero mystique that has grown around Abraham Lincoln. Certainly the constitutional interpretations he proposes are plausible. But there are other plausible interpretations which he dismisses far too easily in order to paint the actions of President Lincoln in the best light possible [...]

    3. I had mixed feelings about this book as I read it - the style was a bit "off" & informal, it had a bit of a "college thesis" feel to it in some of its structure, and the author had some odd analogies (not bad one's mind you, but it is not oft that Lady MacBeth's state of childness/less comes up when comparing the legality of Southern secession). In the end, though, this book is deeper than I had time for - in a good way. This is book that is both dense and easily accessible. The author discu [...]

    4. Professor Farber systematically analyzes constitutional issues of Lincoln's presidency and the Civil War. His primary focus is on whether secession was constitutional, whether Lincoln's decision to go to war without Congressional approval was constitutional and whether the suspension of habeas corpus was constitutional. Two of those questions have import for Americans today.The author is a law professor, but the work is not intended only for the legal community. Farber's knowledge of Lincoln and [...]

    5. Excellent and thoroughly researched review of the issues surrounding Lincoln's presidency, specifically how the Constitutionality of his decisions could be viewed during and since his time in office. Farber clearly understands his topic, providing both ample detail and excellent additional references to both primary and secondary sources. Finally, he makes this potentially very dry subject palatable through clear and concise prose.

    6. Abraham Lincoln's struggle with the struggle with constitutional that were brought about by the civil war and the cession of the southern states. touches all sorts of issues on civil rights, states rights, civil liberties and presidential power and National security. The point is a lot of the decision that were made during this time period still have significant and profound effects on how we view and interpret the constitution today.

    7. A bit too sympathetic of Lincoln's scumbaggery, but a good legal discussion of States' Sovereignty, Secession, Martial Law, and the suspension of Habeas Corpus.
