Kevin BakerLincoln Steffens isn't much remembered today, though Peter Hartshorn's absorbing biography…makes it clear why he should be. As one of the original "muckrakers," Steffens wrote newspaper and magazine exposés that gave journalism a new purpose, a voice in American democracy beyond simply endorsing one party or another…[Hartshorn] has produced a biography that is prodigiously researched, fantastically interesting and extremely well written. Steffens would have been pleased by how well Hartshorn has turned him inside out.
