The year 1997 saw a rise in the number of books that were devoted to Abraham Lincoln. In general, particular emphasis has been on the question of the slavery issue in the time period leading up to Lincoln's presidency. Important new works by David W. Blight and Brooks D. Simpson, William Lee Miller, and Charles Heller all give further insight into the debates on and reactions to the slavery question. Another segment of importance to the Lincoln field has been the focus concerning primary source material in all areas dealing with Lincoln. John Rhodehamel and Louise Taper have compiled all of John Wilkes Booth's letters and correspondence into one work; Douglas L. Wilson and Rodney O. Davis have painstakingly researched the communications that William Herndon had with people when he gathered his material on Abraham Lincoln; Don E. Fehrenbacher and Virginia Fehrenbacher have arranged the known words and statements attributed to Abraham Lincoln and given them a ranking by probability; and Michael Burlingame and John R. Turner Ettlinger have edited the complete diary that Abraham Lincoln's private secretary, John Hay, kept during the Civil War period. These works are just a sample of the continuing evaluation and reassessment of our sixteenth president. In addition, last year's "Lincolniana" in this journal promised to include Internet sites that were relevant to Abraham Lincoln. These plans have been slightly altered. Since last year's publication, the Abraham Lincoln Association has opened its own Internet site. The site ( www.alincolnassoc.com/abraham.htm ) incorporates and highlights Internet sites that pertain to Abraham Lincoln. Please be sure to examine the site for future articles, sites, and news.
