The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the golden age of journalism by Doris Kearns Goodwin

A dynamic history of the muckracking press and the first decade of the Progressive era as told through the intense friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft--a close relationship that strengthens both men before it ruptures in 1912 when they engage in a brutal fight for the presidential nomination that cripples the progressive wing of the Republican Party, causing Democrat Woodrow Wilson to be elected, and changing the country's history.

Discussion to be continued at Friends December Discussion on 12/11.
