The Bully Pulpit: Roosevelt, Taft and the Godlen Age of Journalism

Doris Kearns Goodwin, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, detailed chronicles of the Civil War and World War II.

Now, this major work of history explores activism and change that  brought the country closer to its founding ideals.

Her book on the genius of Lincoln, and, later, No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt won her the Pulitzer Prize.

This dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era comprises her Bully Pulpit.

Headlines serve as the backdrop to her book, including the widening gap between the rich and poor, bombs exploding in crowded streets, money in politics, and more.

Primary sources create her text and tome of 800 pages.

Weather of warm and cold summarize some of Goodwin's history in this good read.
