Historians in Trouble. Plagiarism, Fraud, and Politics in the Ivory Tower. by Jon Wiener. 2005.

In Historians in Trouble, investigative journalist and historian Jon Wiener examines a dozen history scandals in the last few years, and asks why some charges end up on page one and ends 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.
