A Bit More on Historians and Plagiarism

Since this issue has been our primary focus of discussion, I thought some of you would enjoy these additional sources.

Sources on Stephen Ambrose:

Los Angeles Times article on Ambrose click

Sources on Doris Kearns Goodwin:

Forbes Magazine article on Goodwin click

Of course these arn't the only historians to have been caught for plagiarism. They are, however, two very big names in the historical community, and therefore receive the greatest amount of publicity for their misdeeds.

Now...if anyone has found that Gordon Wood or James McPherson were plagarists, I would be devastated.

I agree. If Ellis, Nash, or many other of the "greats" did this I might throw in the towel.
