Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. Her latest book examines the lives of four past presidents to understand what it takes to lead in turbulent times. Their stories, she says, hold valuable lessons for today.
Missoula, Montana is known as a bucolic college town with a competitive university and football team. But four years ago, the press reported a spate of rapes involving students. The Department of Justice launched an investigation and found 350 sexual assaults were reported in Missoula in just over four years. In a new book, best-selling author Jon Krakauer chronicles the stories of several women in these cases. Using hundreds of documents and interviews, he argues authorities failed to adequately address the rapes – sometimes not prosecuting even when accused assailants confessed.
