"With Malice toward None is an impressive performance. Full, fair, and accurate. . . . Certainly the most objective biography of Lincoln ever written. . . . Both because of its outstanding historical merits and because it so completely captures the contemporary mood, With Malice toward None is very probably going to [become] the standard one-volume life of Lincoln." -- Pulitzer Prize-winner David Herbert Donald, New York Times Book Review"The most popular historical interpreter of Lincoln . . . Mr. Oates's With Malice Toward None is the standard biography today. Its very likable Lincoln stands for liberty, and his story has continuity from the log cabin to Ford's Theater. The book has many strengths, but how long it will endure depends on when, or whether, a historian with talents equal to those of Mr. Oates -- no mean requirement -- will come forth with a new biography." -- Gabor S. Boritt, New York Times Book Review"The standard one-volume biography of Lincoln." -- Washington Post"Here, in these pages, Lincoln is still alive....Not the god of the Lincoln Memorial, but a man struggling to remain himself under terrible burdens." -- Los Angeles Times"A superb biography." -- Chicago Tribune "Hailed as the best one-volume biography of Lincoln" -- Boston Globe
