The Preface for the 2012 Slavery and the Constitution volume concludes with this paragraph:

The tension perhaps intrinsic to the American regime founded in 1776 may be seen at its most intense in the Civil War of 1861-1865. That desperate conflict may also be seen even to have deepened the American Soul, perhaps making it more interesting as well as more vulnerable. Indeed, the juxtaposition in this Country between the Founding Era and the Civil War may be usefully linked to the juxtaposition, among the Ancient Greeks (so critica1~to the Western Heritage),between the cosmology-providing Hesiod and the crises-minded Homer (with Abraham Lincoln somehow serving as our Odysseus [about which I hope to say much more later]). It should also be remembered here what Socrates does with Odysseus in the closing pages of Plato’s Republic.
