Doris Kearns Goodwin

The gap between rich and poor has never been wider, legislative stalemate paralyzes the country, and corporations resist federal regulations.  These unnervingly familiar headlines serve as the backdrop for Doris Kearns Goodwin’s The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism—a dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era, that tumultuous time when the nation was coming unseamed and reform was in the air.  Pulitzer Prize winner Goodwin is the author of Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln; No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II; Wait Till Next Year; The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys; and Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream.  


A. Scott Berg

Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner A. Scott Berg's first new book in more than ten years is a biography of the enormously important and influential but enigmatic and often mischaracterized twenty-eighth President of the United States, Wilson (G. P. Putnam’s Sons; $40.00).  We meet not only the statesman who led the nation through “the war to end all wars” and pushed an agenda of progressive reforms through Congress that would be exceeded in scope and impact only by FDR’s New Deal, but the ardent suitor and husband who wooed his first wife with thousands of passionate letters. Berg's previous bestselling biographies have all been iconic American figures: editor Maxwell Perkins, filmmaker Samuel Goldwyn, aviator Charles Lindbergh, and actress Katharine Hepburn.
