First let me say that I flat out love Doris Kearns Goodwin. Yes, she got caught up in lazy editing and was accused, probably rightly so, of plagiarism for sloppy source-work. Too bad. Here’s a good bead on that old story:
With the Bully Pulpit she’s apparently changed her ways. I can’t imagine more quotes and sources than she has here – she’s done a wonderful job, as far as my totally lay-person mind can tell. The only trouble is that on a Kindle you have to go back to that section and find the footnote – there’s no mark in the text. When you find it you are able to get back to the appropriate narrative via a link. I guess e-books are still finding their way on how to do this stuff. This is better than some I’ve read – worse than others.
