Episode Summary

EDIT
Harry Jaffa: Crisis of the House Divided
AIRED:
In 1959, Harry Jaffa published Crisis of the House Divided: An Interpretation of the Issues in the Lincoln-Douglas Debates. Four hundred pages of close textual analysis, biography and political philosophy, the book transformed the scholarly understanding of Lincoln, placing the prairie lawyer on a level with Jefferson, Adams, Hamilton and the other Founders.Marking the 50th anniversary of the book's appearance, the University of Chicago Press has just published a new edition. "Crisis of the House Divided," writes Andrew Ferguson, who has also written a volume about Lincoln, "is a book that will never die -- a genuine landmark in American thought. It is the greatest Lincoln book ever."moreless
