First published in 1942, "They Knew Lincoln" by John E. Washington sold out quickly and was never reprinted, until now. This book was the first to focus solely on this little researched area of Lincolniana, the personal relationships of African-American people with one of our most beloved presidents. Washington provides part memoir, part biography of the lives of those who served the Lincolns’ and of some of the African Americans who shaped Lincoln’s view on slavery.

Alexander Dubcek’s program for ambitious political and economic reform, his support from society, and finally the intervention of the Warsaw Pact in Czechoslovakia were the most significant expressions of the socialist world in 1968. While usually integrated into the global phenomenon of protest, or studied through national lenses, these events have received limited interest as a part of the transnational practice of socialist reform.
