'The Bully Pulpit' By Doris Kearns Goodwin

Sep 10, 2014

  Doris Kearns Goodwin—the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of No Ordinary Time and Team of Rivals—brings her blend of scholarship, intellectual rigor and riveting storytelling to the turbulent and fateful relationship between two presidents, the rise of muckraking journalism, and the far-reaching ferment of the Progressive Era.

Her best-selling book The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism is out this week in paperback.

The Bully Pulpit raises questions about whether we’re living in a new Gilded age, whether the relationship between business and government has really changed and whether it’s possible for a President to have control of the bully pulpit anymore now that the media landscape is so diffused with the internet and 24-hour news cycle.
