One of the Best Books of the Year as chosen by -- The Bully Pulpit The story is 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 divides their wives, their children, and their closest friends, while crippling the progressive wing of the Republican Party, causing Democrat Woodrow Wilson to be elected, and changing the country?s history. -- The Bully Pulpit, like Goodwin?s brilliant chronicles of the Civil War and World War II, exquisitely demonstrates her distinctive ability to combine scholarly rigor with accessibility. It is a major work of history?an examination of leadership in a rare moment of activism and reform that brought the country closer to its founding ideals.
