President Theodore Roosevelt left his mark on every facet of American life, including, quite colorfully, its language. Here, in a single volume, are not only his best "Teddyisms"—"hyphenated America," "muckraker," "the square deal," "the lunatic fringe," "good to the last drop," and many others—and lost words, but also the best of Roosevelt's most memorable quotations, which serve to illuminate every area of our culture: Americans; boxing; citizenship; conservation; courage; death; democracy; extremists; family values; football; government; heroism; history; hunting; leadership; liberty; patriotism; power; religion; war and peace; winning; women's rights; and much more.

When historian Goodwin was six years old, her father taught her how to keep score for ‘their’ team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, which forged a lifelong bond between father and daughter. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year is a coming-of-age memoir in the era of Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese and Duke Snider, when baseball truly was a national pastime that brought whole communities together. With her radio by her side and scorecard to hand, she recreates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. Weaved between the games and the seasons, Goodwin tells the story of a changing America – from the lunacy of the Cold War alarm drills to McCarthy and the Rosenburg trials – as well as her own loss of innocence encapsulated by her mother’s death, her father’s lapse into despair and the Dodger’s departure from Brooklyn in 1957 following the destruction of the iconic Ebbets Field stadium. Poignant, unsentimental and deeply eloquent, Wait Till Next Year is a profound memoir about childhood and loss, baseball, and the power of sport to bind families and heal loss and reveal as metaphor the evolving heart of a nation.

An engrossing biography of President Lyndon Johnson from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Team of Rivals Hailed by the New York Times as “the most penetrating, fascinating political biography I have ever read,” Doris Kearns Goodwin’s extraordinary and insightful book draws from meticulous research in addition to the author’s time spent working at the White House from 1967 to 1969. After Lyndon Johnson’s term ended, Goodwin remained his confidante and assisted in the preparation of his memoir. In Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream she traces the 36th president’s life from childhood to his early days in politics, and from his leadership of the Senate to his presidency, analyzing his dramatic years in the White House, including both his historic domestic triumphs and his failures in Vietnam. Drawn from personal anecdotes and candid conversation with Johnson, Goodwin paints a rich and complicated portrait of one of our nation’s most compelling politicians.

The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin - A 30-minute Chapter-by-Chapter Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary: Preface Doris Kearns Goodwin spent seven years researching and writing The Bully Pulpit. She set out to write a book about Theodore Roosevelt and the Progressive Era, but soon found that there were three important strands to the story. First of all, Theodore Roosevelt is considered one of our greatest presidents because of his use of the “bully pulpit” to focus a national movement to ethically use governmental action to control the effects of the rapid growth of America. Secondly, Roosevelt built an intimate and beneficial relationship with the press, especially with investigative reporters Ida Tarbell, Ray Baker, Lincoln Steffens, and William Allen White. Working with Roosevelt, these reporters helped educate the public and motivate them to take action to move the country towards its ancient but extremely important ideals. Thirdly, William Howard Taft played a significant role in the Roosevelt administration as a friend, confidant, and as Roosevelt's secretary of war. Taft is often remembered as an unsuccessful president, but he was actually the one that Roosevelt entrusted as “acting president” whenever he left Washington for business or pleasure. Taft's admitted downfall was his inability to use the press and his “bully pulpit” in the same way that Roosevelt had. This had more to do with his personality than anything else. As Goodwin got further and further into her research, she became passionate about asking and answering the question of how Roosevelt, the muckrakers, and Taft instigated such incredible change within the country. 1: The Hunter Returns Theodore Roosevelt received a hero's welcome upon his return to New York from his expedition to Africa on June 18, 1910. He was surprised by the reception since he had worried that his star had dimmed and the public no longer supported him. Refusing to run for a third term, Roosevelt had selected his trusted friend William Howard Taft to succeed him and had put all of his energy behind helping Taft win the election. To Roosevelt's dismay, he quickly discovered that Taft had aligned himself with old-line conservatives and was compromising Roosevelt's progressive hard-won advances. Speculation about whether Roosevelt would side with old-line conservatives or with the “insurgents” had been rampant in the press throughout the spring. Aware that anything he said would be hurtful to one side or the other, Roosevelt decided to err on the side of caution and say nothing until he could learn more about what had truly happened while he was away...

At the turn of the twentieth century, the Republican Party stood at the brink of an internal civil war. After a devastating financial crisis, furious voters sent a new breed of politician to Washington. These young Republican firebrands, led by "Fighting Bob" La Follette of Wisconsin, vowed to overthrow the party leaders and purge Wall Street's corrupting influence from Washington. Their opponents called them "radicals," and "fanatics." They called themselves Progressives. President Theodore Roosevelt disapproved of La Follette's confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with the conservative House Speaker, "Uncle Joe" Cannon, to pass modest reforms. But as La Follette's crusade gathered momentum, the country polarized, and the middle ground melted away. Three years after the end of his presidency, Roosevelt embraced La Follette's militant tactics and went to war against the Republican establishment, bringing him face to face with his handpicked successor, William Taft. Their epic battle shattered the Republican Party and permanently realigned the electorate, dividing the country into two camps: Progressive and Conservative. Unreasonable Men takes us into the heart of the epic power struggle that created the progressive movement and defined modern American politics. Recounting the fateful clash between the pragmatic Roosevelt and the radical La Follette, Wolraich's riveting narrative reveals how a few Republican insurgents broke the conservative chokehold on Congress and initiated the greatest period of political change in America's history.
