Description

It is not often that journalism makes it into the grand narrative of American history. Woodward and Bernstein, through their coverage and breaking of the news story that was Watergate, not only inserted themselves into the story of political corruption going on in Washington, but have remained scions in the field of news reporting up through the present day.

This innovative biography covers the lives of both Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein separately, but then goes on to investigate their working relationship, their experience of reporting on the Watergate scandal of the Nixon era, and their lasting impact on the field of investigative journalism. Through five short chapters and a selection of diverse primary sources, Julie Goldsmith shows how two men, armed with the truth and a forum for broadcasting that information, can make a difference on a national level.
