The book delves into Lincoln's early political career and his stance on slavery, providing valuable insights into his evolving beliefs. Written in a compelling and persuasive style, the speech showcases Lincoln's passion for justice and equality. The literary context of the book situates it within the larger framework of abolitionist literature, highlighting its importance in the fight against slavery. The eloquence and clarity of Lincoln's arguments make this book a must-read for history buffs and scholars alike.

The Lost Speech reflects Lincoln's moral compass and his dedication to the abolitionist cause. His personal experiences and encounters with slavery undoubtedly shaped the content and tone of this speech. I highly recommend Abraham Lincoln's Lost Speech, May 29, 1856, to anyone interested in American history, abolitionism, and the political thought of one of the most revered figures in U.S. history. This book offers a unique perspective on Lincoln's early years and his unwavering commitment to justice.

    Persuasion can be used for good and evil. Some people know exactly what moves others to act a certain way, and they know how to guide them in certain directions. 
      
    But the knowledge of how to do this, does not have to be limited to a select few. It simply requires someone like you to take initiative and to read or listen to a book like this. In this book, a variety of topics will be covered, including but not limited to: the true meaning of persuasion, tips to persuade others faster and more effectively, persuasion as an art, the neuroscience behind decision-making moments, and problems that arise when people are too persuasive (if there is such a thing).

    “Greetings, conversationalists across the fruited plain, this is Rush Limbaugh, the most dangerous man in America, with the largest hypothalamus in North America, serving humanity simply by opening my mouth, destined for my own wing in the Museum of Broadcasting, executing everything I do flawlessly with zero mistakes, doing this show with half my brain tied behind my back just to make it fair because I have talent on loan from…God. Rush Limbaugh. A man. A legend. A way of life.” – Rush Limbaugh, 1991 
    With the advent of several controversial social movements in subsequent decades, a non-traditional style of editorial persona began to take control of the news machinery in America. The weighing of ideas gave way to exclusive promotion of a specific world view, and the omission of all opposition within a devotee’s range of hearing. The general population, the branches of government, and the media entered an era of divisiveness as cable television and talk radio altered the equation by which we once interacted. These important social movements of the mid-20th century, intended to enhance the status of marginalized groups, factionalized the nation in the process. New battle lines between race, gender, and political ideology brought about a similarly fragmented group of media organizations, each catering to those sharing its worldview. Finessed shadings of mutual discussion were banished as opposing arguments were negated entirely, bringing about the current era of hyperpartisanship. Limbaugh’s radio extravaganza acts much like a restrictive social network itself, with informal pressure exerted upon listeners to conform. With other opinions excluded, the audience is given a “heightened sense” of being in the majority.

    “A revelation . . . will open your eyes to the wide diversity and rich history of our ongoing suburban experiment.” —Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class   America’s suburbs are not the homogenous places we sometimes take them for. Today’s suburbs are racially, ethnically, and economically diverse, with as many Democratic as Republican voters, a growing population of renters, and rising poverty. The cliche of white picket fences is well past its expiration date. The history of suburbia is equally surprising: American suburbs were once fertile ground for utopian planning, communal living, socially-conscious design, and integrated housing. We have forgotten that we built suburbs like these, such as the co-housing commune of Old Economy, Pennsylvania; a tiny-house anarchist community in Piscataway, New Jersey; a government-planned garden city in Greenbelt, Maryland; a racially integrated subdivision (before the Fair Housing Act) in Trevose, Pennsylvania; experimental Modernist enclaves in Lexington, Massachusetts; and the mixed-use, architecturally daring Reston, Virginia. Inside Radical Suburbs you will find blueprints for affordable, walkable, and integrated communities, filled with a range of environmentally sound residential options. Radical Suburbs is a history that will help us remake the future and rethink our assumptions of suburbia.   “The communities Kolson Hurley chronicles are welcome reminders that any place, even a suburb, can be radical if you approach it the right way.” —NPR “Radical Suburbs overturns stereotypes about the suburbs to show that, from the beginning, those ‘little boxes’ harbored revolutionary ideas about racial and economic inclusion, communal space, and shared domestic labor. Amanda Kolson Hurley’s illuminating case studies show not just where we’ve been but where we need to go.” ―Alexandra Lange, author of The Design of Childhood
