The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism
Doris Kearns Goodwin, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Team of Rivals, is in the limelight again, with her latest book, The Bully Pulpit. The New York Times describes the work, seven years in the making, as a “tandem biography” of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. On top of these narratives, Goodwin layers the story of how muckraking journalists affected the two politicians’ terms. “’The Bully Pulpit’ brings the early 20th century to life,” says the Washington Post.
