Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism ᦤ By Doris Kearns Goodwin ᧊ An Best Book of the Month, November 2013 In an era when cooperation between the national media and the US government seems laughable, Pulitzer Prize winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwins timely 100 year look backward explores the origins of the type of muckraking journalism that helped make America a better country Focusing on the presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt and his successor, William Howard Taft one time colleagues and friends who later became sworn foes Goodwin chronicles the birth of an activist press, which occurred when five of the nations best ever journalists converged at McClures magazine and helped usher in the Progressive era At times slow and overly meticulous, with a lot of backstory and historical minutiae, this is nonetheless a lush, lively, and surprisingly urgent story a series of entwined stories, actually, with headstrong and irascible characters who had me pining for journalisms earlier days Its a big book that cries out for a weekend in a cabin, a book to get fully lost in, to hole up with and ignore the modern world, to experience the days when newsmen and women were our heroes Neal ThompsonStarred Review In this hyperpartisan era, it is well to remember that a belief in an activist federal government that promoted both social and economic progress crossed party lines, as it did during the Progressive movement of the early twentieth century Goodwin, the acclaimed historian, repeatedly emphasizes that fact in her massive and masterful study of the friendship, and then the enmity, of two presidents who played major roles in that movement Roosevelt, unsurprisingly, is portrayed by Goodwin as egotistical, bombastic, and determined to take on powerful special interests He saw his secretary of war, Taft, as a friend and disciple When Taft, as president, seemed to abandon the path of reform, Roosevelt saw it as both a political and a personal betrayal Taft, sadly remembered by many as our fattest president, receives nuanced, sympathetic, but not particularly favorable treatment here But this is also an examination of some of the great journalists who exposed societal ills and promoted the reforms that aimed to address them Many of these muckrakers, including Ida Tarbell and Lincoln Steffens, worked for McClures magazine This is a superb re creation of a period when many politicians, journalists, and citizens of differing political affiliations viewed government as a force for public good HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY This authors
