The Bully Pulpit
Coming under the wire, The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin ranks as my favorite book of the year. I knew another stint with good ole’ Teedy would do me well, but I was surprised to find myself a Taft admirer by the end, and delighted to learn about the origins of investigative journalism by way of Sam McClure’s eponymous magazine. The intertwining of the progressive movement in politics, this new style of journalism, and the tectonic shifts in industry and labor caused this period to be one of the most dynamic in American history. An indispensable read and I wish I had opened the book sooner!
