Prior to this, she began her career as an editor for the children's literary magazine\n   <i>\n    Cricket\n   </i>\n   and was an editor at the University of Wisconsin Press.\n  </p>\n  <p>\n   The historical accuracy of\n   <i>\n    Our Burden of Shame\n   </i>\n   is spotty, with a number of key topics either not covered at all or mentioned only briefly and also contains a number of factual errors and over generalizations.
