Abstract

  • Silverman’s book investigates Lincoln’s evolving personal, professional and political relationship with the wide variety of immigrant groups he encountered throughout his life, revealing that Lincoln related to the immigrant in a manner few of his contemporaries would or could emulate.
  • The topic remains relevant today as the United States and other countries wrestle with how to manage large migrations into their societies.
