Kenneth J. Winkle's The Young Eagle: The Rise of Abraham Lincoln represents a pioneering and innovative attempt to place the pre-presidential Lincoln in the broad social and political context of his time. On the whole, it is an illuminating, useful contribution to the field of Lincoln studies for which all students of the life of the 16th president will be grateful.
