I want to use LaTeX to compile a Tufte-style book. The build process fails even in this minimal example:

\documentclass{tufte-book}

\title{this is a title}
\author{me}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}

The error message from the commmand line is: ! Argument of \MakeTextUppercase has an extra }. This has been pointed out in a previous question here (which is also the source of the MWE), but a solution is only provided for XeLaTeX. I want to use latex instead.

In DVI mode (latex and xelatex), tufte loads soul, which is, as usual, delicate:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{soul,textcase}
\begin{document}
\so{\MakeTextUppercase{boom!}}
\end{document}

You can “register” the command to \soul so that it knows how to handle it:

\documentclass{tufte-book}

\ifdefined\soulregister
  \soulregister\MakeTextUppercase{1}%
  \soulregister\MakeTextLowercase{1}%
\fi

\title{this is a title}
\author{me}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}
