A new birth of freedom : Abraham Lincoln and the coming of the Civil War by Harry V Jaffa( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harry V. Jaffa illuminates Lincoln's understanding of the concepts of self-government, equality, and statesmanship, and he offers penetrating insights into Lincoln's refutation of the political philosophy and constitutional interpretations of John C. Calhoun and the southern secessionists. A New Birth of Freedom is a work of major importance that will require all Americans to reevaluate their understanding of Abraham Lincoln, especially his decision to prosecute the bloodiest war of American history."--Jacket

Crisis of the Strauss divided : essays on Leo Strauss and Straussianiasm, East and West by Harry V Jaffa( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Leo Strauss (1899-1973) was the greatest mind in political philosophy in the twentieth century, and possibly in other centuries as well. That, I am well aware, is a judgment I share with very few, if any." So writes Harry V. Jaffa in his epilogue to this volume. Including an extensive unpublished essay entitled "Straussian Geography: A Memoir and Commentary," Crisis of the Strauss Divided brings together a collection of Jaffa's published arguments defending and explaining that judgment, written during the 40 years since Strauss's death. The volume includes arguments of those who have disagreed with Jaffa about Strauss's teaching and about the nature of political philosophy. These wide ranging exchanges explore many of the great themes of political philosophy and, in particular, the implications of Strauss's thinking for America and modern civilization."--Publisher's website
Original intent & the framers of the Constitution : a disputed question by Harry V Jaffa( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Original Intent and the Framers of the Constitution: A Disputed Question is a unique contribution to the debate, begun by Attorney General Edwin Meese in the second Reagan administration, over the "original intentions of the Framers." Professor Jaffa agrees entirely with Meese's opinion that there is a need to confine judges to interpreting, not making law. Jaffa also agrees that original intent, rightly understood, is the only sound basis of constitutional jurisprudence. But he contends that Meese, Chief Justice William Rehnquist, and Judge Robert Bork - original intent's leading conservative proponents - have misunderstood its meaning
