Abstract

Allan Kulikoff’s slender book designed for undergraduate college courses draws on selected writings of Abraham Lincoln and Karl Marx to construct a trans-Atlantic dialogue on various aspects of mid-nineteenth-century labor, class, and politics. Kulikoff’s concise introduction, “The Corporate Lawyer and the Revolutionary,” plus head notes to the documents, suggest how the great republican and the great communist agreed and differed on subjects central to the Civil War’s bigger meaning. Although Lincoln and Marx never met, the tumult of their times necessarily brought them together intellectually.
