Whiting's writings are widely believed to have profoundlyaffected President Lincoln's war actions. In Whiting'stheories regarding war powers and the abolition of slavery,Lincoln found justification for the Emancipation Proclama-tion, and the constitutional authority to abolish slavery.Simply stated, Whiting held that the abolition of slavery isconstitutionally appropriate when viewed not as the objec-tive end of the war, but as a means to end the rebellion tosave the republic. His writing style was geared to theaverage reader. This 10th edition is based on his earlierwork, War Powers of the President...(1862) which is thoughtto be the work that originally brought Whiting to Lincoln'sattention and led to his appointment in the War Department.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
