Team of Rivals

If you are involved in a primary, or enjoy watching the intra-party struggle from the outside, you should read this book. It has fascinating details about Lincoln’s electoral strategies. Reading about the history, motivations and interactions among Lincoln and his top rivals makes for a fascinating study in party process and group decision-making. Team of Rivals also includes descriptions of the following parties: Democratic Party, Constitution-Union, Whigs, and Know-Nothings. And, there is also background into the founding of a very famous third party – the Republican Party. ~Kimberly Wilder

From the publisher’s notes:

Acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin illuminates in Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln’s political genius in this highly original work, as the one-term congressman and prairie lawyer rises from obscurity to prevail over three gifted rivals of national reputation to become president.

On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry.

It was this capacity [empathy] that enabled Lincoln as president to bring his disgruntled opponents together, create the most unusual cabinet in history, and marshal their talents to the task of preserving the Union and winning the war.
