Lincoln in The World by Kevin Peraino
A lot is being written about Lincoln. It is as if our sixteenth president has become a multifaceted character.
Years ago a book was written examining the Leadership principles of Lincoln. Other aspects of the life of this interesting person have been discovered. There is a lot to learn from him and the circumstances of his time period that forced him to bloom.
Lincoln is little known as a foreign-policy president but he was. It was a learning process and this book walks us through the molding.
He was able to be a global strategist despite his limitations of not speaking a foreign language or travel.
This book is not to be seen as a biography but as a study of the development of his stance concerning the place of America in the foreign market place.
The author, Peraino, divides the story between Lincoln’s interaction with six persons in the development of his policy principles.
Everyone is a product of his era and the interaction between people. No one is really self-made. Life is friction from which comes a product. Thus it was for Lincoln.
It is a good addition to the full picture of Abraham Lincoln and should be in anyone’s library who desires to get a complete picture of the man.
