Summary
"Historians have been in the news recently, and the news has not been good - accusations of plagiarism, research fraud, and classroom misconduct have made headlines, brought protracted investigations, and, in some cases, landed big names in the courtroom." "In Historians in Trouble, investigative journalist and historian John Wiener examines a dozen history scandals of the last few years, and asks why some charges end up on page one and end careers, while others do not. He argues that media spectacles end careers only when powerful groups outside the profession demand punishment - and that such campaigns typically come from the right rather than the left."--Jacket
