Why Lincoln matters : today more than ever by Mario Matthew Cuomo ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,259 libraries worldwide
Abraham Lincoln became president on the brink of a terrible war, and he led our country through its darkest times. Challenged by slavery, secession, and war, Lincoln was able to articulate forcefully the values and ideals that have sustained our country since its inception. His speeches, writings, and actions melded the Constitution, the Bible, and his own experience into an American scripture that inspires faith in the future. Today, our country faces terrible challenges, a shadowy war, increasing inequality among our people, and a society with knife-sharp divisions-and there is a decided lack of vision in our country's leadership. So Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York, and a gifted political philosopher, returns to Lincoln's words, his speeches and writings, to offer guidance for today's problems. He shows how the big issues--equality, the role of government, war and peace, the responsibilities of the fortunate few--resonate in today's political climate as he brings to life the contemporary relevance of Lincoln's message for today's hot-button subjects. Cuomo's analysis of Abraham Lincoln will inspire readers to believe that government can still be a force for greater good in American society. And it offers us a liberal, generous, and responsible path for the future. Abraham Lincoln is surely the most revered President in our history. His words are American Scripture. And like scripture, Lincoln's words are quoted for good and for ill. Mario Cuomo, three-term Governor of New York, one of the great orators of our day and a staunch liberal, will write the book that shows what a liberal Lincoln was, and how his political philosophy should work as progressive ideas in the 21st century. He takes up all the important subjects for our political era, and shows where Lincoln stood on the issues. The outline includes chapters on: Equality; Freedom; Opportunity; Responsibility; Community; The role of government; The rule of law, and, in light of the recent war in Iraq, he is adding a chapter on "Just War" and what that really means. Abraham Lincoln, long the most resonant voice of American political values, was a founding member of the Republican Party. In today's charged political climate, he would be hard-pressed to recognize the issues in the contemporary GOP, argues Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York and a gifted political philosopher. Mario Cuomo shows how the big issues-equality, the role of government, war and peace, the responsibilities of the fortunate few-resonate in today's political climate as he brings to life the contemporary relevance of Lincoln's message for today's hot-button issues. Today's political discourse often lacks depth and wisdom, but Mario Cuomo's analysis of Abraham Lincoln will inspire readers to believe that government can still be a force for greater good in American society.

More than words : the speeches of Mario Cuomo by Mario Matthew Cuomo ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 593 libraries worldwide
Mario Cuomo once said of Abraham Lincoln, "He was a man of ideas, grand and soaring ones," but the description could be used just as easily to describe Cuomo. Here, in More than Words, the Governor of New York is seen and heard as a man of vision, a politician of poignancy and passion, and a leader whose achievements he puts behind himself as he stays riveted on the great burden of "unfinished work" that still lies ahead. More than Words is an extraordinary book. Stirring, provocative, lyrical, these twenty-nine speeches - among the finest of hundreds of talks given by Cuomo in three decades of public service - not only define the meaning of leadership in late-twentieth-century America but provide an insightful and personal portrait of the man himself. It is a son's tale of an immigrant father who "dug ditches until he could save enough to buy the small grocery store and the rooms above it" where Cuomo was born. And a mother who arrived alone in America with "little more than a suitcase and the address of her laborer husband who had preceded her." The powerful love that bound the family together, their belief in the dignity of work and their willingness to sacrifice, the respect for God's creations, for themselves and for their responsibilities, are the values they passed on to all their children, including their third son, Mario Cuomo, and they are the values that are found woven through virtually all of his speeches. More than Words reflects the ideals of a man who has made it his task to point out the massive inequities that divide our nation into two camps - one prospering, the other suffering - and how this gulf was never bridged in the time of Reagan and Bush. Set in a historical context, Mom than Words can easily be read as a counterpoint - not so much Democratic counterpoint but a passionately expressed human counterpoint - to a generation of limousine executives who led America from 1980 through 1992. Mario Cuomo's vision of America was nowhere more eloquently conveyed than in his keynote address to the Democratic Convention in San Francisco on the evening of July 16, 1984. Attacking the Reagan administration for its "New Federalism" while describing America as "a tale of two cities," Cuomo took the country by storm with his command of the language and his ability to portray what Virgil once described as "the tears of things" (lacrimae rerum). After this speech his role as one of the nation's leading orators was secured. Along with this memorable keynote speech from 1984 are dozens of other addresses, some quite well known, others less so, that serve as the ideological and philosophical ledger that is Mario Cuomo. Included in More than Words are the Notre Dame speech on abortion, the American Bar Association speech of 1986 outlining the proper and improper ways by which a Supreme Court justice is nominated, the Springfield, Illinois, address on the legacy of Abraham Lincoln, and the Democratic nominating speech of 1992, as well as Cuomo's views on such subjects as freedom of the press, Israel, the death penalty, and the function of labor unions. More than Words is a book that, through its language and cadence, soars. A work that can be read, like Winston Churchill's The Sinews of Peace, as not only a book of speeches but also as a record of history, it is a towering achievement of a prodigiously gifted American leader. In the end it is a book that forces us to examine our future, for "the achievements of our past impose upon us the obligation to do as much for those who come after us."
The New York idea : an experiment in democracy by Mario Matthew Cuomo ( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 565 libraries worldwide
Repudiating the era of "fend-for-yourself Federalism," New York State's Governor Mario Cuomo looks back over a decade in office and ahead to his state's role in the twenty-first century; in the process he creates a blueprint for restoring the promise of the American Dream not only to the people of New York State, but to all Americans. The New York Idea embraces common sense and compassion: government using its resources to stimulate private-sector growth, then requiring those who benefit to extend in turn an increased measure of hope and opportunity to those on the bottom rungs of the economic ladder. Its application requires a realistic appreciation of the importance of the free market and an intelligent recognition of the legitimate role government can play in supporting and spurring growth. In The New York Idea, Governor Cuomo cites real-world, politically workable instances from his own experience to reveal how such a strategy can succeed. Governor Cuomo sees New York as a microcosm of the United States, and the New York experience - its successes and its failures - instructive to citizens and elected officials - in all states, as America struggles to recover from a decade of failed national policy. The New York Idea is an unprecedented look at the practicalities and possibilities of state government, as envisioned by a sitting governor.
