Lincoln’s Evolving Views on Slavery

The most recent work by a serious historian on Loncoln and Slavery is Eric Foner’s The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery, published in 2010. Here is a link to a story on NPR reviewing this work: http://www.npr.org/2010/10/11/130489804/lincolns-evolving-thoughts-on-slavery-and-freedom

Not only is Eric Foner an historian with whom you should be familiar, but this is a very good work on its own merits.
