內容簡介

除了聖經,美國總統歐巴馬最想帶進白宮的書
如何讓敵人變戰友
普立茲獎得主Doris Kearns Goodwin經典巨著


  林肯獎
  美國歷史圖書獎
  美國全國圖書評論獎決選
  《紐約時報》暢銷書


  林肯的成功絕非僥倖,而是個性使然,他能將心比心、設身處地,了解其他人的動機與欲望。入主白宮後,他延攬才華洋溢的競爭對手入閣,他解釋道:「我們需要黨內最有能力的人出任閣員,這幾位就是最強而有力的人選,所以我沒有權利阻止他們為國家服務。」他的智慧並不僅止於以氣度、幽默和政治直覺,組織最好的人才,更在每個重要的時刻,都能讓他們牢記他的目標、觀念和決心。對時機和輿論脈動有過人的敏銳度,讓他能使分裂的群眾共同支持「自由的新生」。在古今中外的歷史上,像林肯這樣同時具備高尚人格和領導天才的人,屈指可數,他不僅是政治人物的典範,更令我們神往。


  解放黑奴,贏得南北戰爭、維護國家完整,並提出「民有、民治、民享」的治國願景,林肯之所以能成就這些偉大的事蹟,乃因他(一)選用頂尖人才,組成政敵團隊;(二)分享成就、承擔責任;(三)高EQ;(四)懂得反省,並從錯誤中學習;(五)擁抱危機中的契機。而根本則在於他具備仁慈、感性、愛心、誠實、同理心等特質。其中,林肯不與任何人為敵,因而能創造連政敵都同心效力的團隊,更為後人所津津樂道。在政治冷感的台灣,人民心底其實更盼望能出現「林肯型領導者」──他同時具備高尚人品和領導才能,為正義和真理而奮鬥。對領導人而言,閱讀本書,猶如親炙偉大政治家與領導者的信念和做法,是自我超越的最佳指引。對大眾讀者來說,林肯化敵為友的智慧與突破逆境的故事,更激勵人心!


  封面圖片為一八六二年時,林肯於內閣成員前首次宣讀解放宣言(The first reading of the Emancipation Proclamation before the cabinet),由法蘭西斯.卡本特(Francis Carpenter)所繪。人物由左至右為:戰爭部長史坦頓(Edwin McMasters Stanton)、財政部長蔡斯(Salmon Portland Chase)、總統林肯、海軍部長威爾斯(Gideon Welles)、內政部長史密斯(Caleb Blood Smith,站立者)、國務卿蘇爾德(William Henry Seward,坐者)、郵政部長布萊爾(Montgomery Blair)與司法部長貝茲(Edward Bates)。

One of the most influential books of the past fifty years, Team of Rivals is Pulitzer Prize-winning author and esteemed presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin’s modern classic about the political genius of Abraham Lincoln, his unlikely presidency, and his cabinet of former political foes.

Winner of the prestigious Lincoln Prize and the inspiration for the Oscar Award winning-film Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, directed by Steven Spielberg, and written by Tony Kushner.

On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry.

Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war. That Lincoln succeeded, Goodwin demonstrates, was the result of a character that had been forged by experiences that raised him above his more privileged and accomplished rivals. He won because he possessed an extraordinary ability to put himself in the place of other men, to experience what they were feeling, to understand their motives and desires.

It was this capacity that enabled Lincoln as president to bring his disgruntled opponents together, create the most unusual cabinet in history, and marshal their talents to the task of preserving the Union and winning the war.

We view the long, horrifying struggle from the vantage of the White House as Lincoln copes with incompetent generals, hostile congressmen, and his raucous cabinet. He overcomes these obstacles by winning the respect of his former competitors, and in the case of Seward, finds a loyal and crucial friend to see him through.

This brilliant multiple biography is centered on Lincoln’s mastery of men and how it shaped the most significant presidency in the nation’s history.
