Publishers Description The Agitator and the Politician is a non-fictional account of the lives of two men who were central figures in the emancipation of the slaves in the United States. Following the careers of William Lloyd Garrison and Abraham Lincoln, the book shows the dramatically contrasting points of view of the radical abolitionist and the conservative politician. Author Robert MacDougall invites any reader who is interested in the anti-slavery movement and the American Civil War to analyze the reasons for the differing perspectives of these two men, and to appreciate the ironies that lay in the process through which each arrived at the momentous climax of both of their efforts ? the abolition of American slavery.
