Product Description

IN 1860 ABRAHAM LINCOLN EMPLOYED THE PROVERB "RIGHT MAKES MIGHT," THE OPPOSITE OF THE MORE AGGRESSIVE "MIGHT MAKES RIGHT," IN HIS FAMEDCOOPER UNION ADDRESS. WHILE LINCOLN DID NOT ORIGINATE THE PROVERB, HIS USE OF IT IN THIS CRITICAL SPEECH INDICATED THAT THE 14TH CENTURY PHRASEHAD TAKEN ON NEW ETHICAL AND DEMOCRACTIC CONNECTION IN THE 19TH CENTURY. IN THIS COLLECTION, FAMED SCHOLAR OF PROVERBS WOLGANG MIEDER EXPLORES THE MULTIFACTED USE AND FUNCTION OF PROVERBS THROUGH THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES,FROM THAIR EARLY BEGINNING UP THROUGH THEIR USE BY TODAY'S WELL-KNOWN POLITICIANS, INCLUDING BARACK OBAMA, HILLIARY RODHAM CLINTON, AND BERNIE SANDERS.
