"Lincoln Unmasked is a masterpiece response to the crowd that DiLorenzo calls the Lincoln cult. He names names, and names places, in what is a fascinating read and correction to one of the most important episodes in U.S. history." --Walter E. Williams, nationally syndicated columnist and John M. Olin Professor of Economics at George Mason University "Abe, climb down from Mt. Rushmore, and vacate the penny. Your days in the pantheon are over, thanks to the scholarship and courage of Thomas J. DiLorenzo." --Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., president of the Ludwig von Mises Institute "In The Real Lincoln, Professor DiLorenzo convincingly exposed Lincoln idolatry as a fraud that has poisoned America's understanding of itself. Following up in Lincoln Unmasked, he shows who maintains and profits from the toxin in the body politic and the damage that they are doing to us to this very day. DiLorenzo's masterful diagnosis, we may hope, will go a long way toward a cure." --Clyde Wilson, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, University of South Carolina "Lincoln Unmasked is a masterful book. Finally, Lincoln has been held to account and the lies and machinations of the Lincoln cult exposed." --Paul Craig Roberts, syndicated columnist and former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury "Brilliant and withering, Lincoln Unmasked answers the kind of forbidden questions that our country now more than ever needs to hear. Thomas DiLorenzo deals in the kind of information that is consistently withheld from students in what we laughingly call our educational system." --Thomas E. Woods, Jr., bestselling author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History From the Hardcover edition.
