I am a big fan of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. If you saw the show last night, you already know what I'm about to post...Lincoln author Allen Guelzo was a guest on the show last night!
Professor Guelzo was there to promote his new book on the Lincoln-Douglas debates. The topic is especially timely. Not only is 2008 the 150th anniversary of the most celebrated debates in American history, but we are currently in high-debate season for the upcoming presidential election.
I have not yet read Guelzo's new book, but I will get to it very soon. I expect it to be very good. As you might know, Professor Guelzo is a two-time winner of the Lincoln Prize, the highest honor in the field. His book on the Emancipation Proclamation is fantastic, as is his earlier offering, titled Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President.
If you did not catch Professor Guelzo's appearance on the Daily Show last night, you can watch it right here!
