    How Ida Tarbell, Upton Sinclair, and Lincoln Steffens Helped Expose Scandal, Inspire Reform, and Invent Investigative Journalism
    Hold the presses! Here's the sensational story of the birth of investigative journalism in America. At the turn of the 20th century, news reporters and monthly magazines collaborate to create a new kind of journalism - in - depth, serialized ''exposes'' of corporate, labor, and political corruption. Many of these stories become instant bestsellers in book format: books like ''The Jungle, Upton Sinclair's classic account of corruption in the meat - packing industry. Ann Bausum's dramatic narrative follows a generation of dedicated journalists who force responsible changes in industry and politics as America thrives. Muckrakers'' is the inside story of public - spirited journalism right through its evolution, with profiles of latter - day practitioners like Woodward and Bernstein and today's Internet bloggers. Ann Bausum's storytelling savvy will engage and inspire young people to cherish age - old values such as truth and public accountability. ''Muckrakers'' is the scoop on American journalism.
