by Roy Greenslade.

Paperback. 795 pages. Published 2004 revised edition. Very good copy, clean and tight. 2 black-and-white photo sections in book. Age tanning edges.

The definitive history of modern newspaper journalism by the highly regarded Guardian columnist Roy Greenslade. Tracing the changing face of British newspapers, he shows how the way we live has been shaped by what we read. The newspaper world is brought to life.

A comprehensive account of the national newspaper from 1945 onwards, Press gang goes behind the headlines to reveal the Machiavellian plots, the power wielded by proprieters and the influence enjoyed by editors.

It details the end of the era of the old-style press barons and the emergence of global media tycoons.

While analysing such dominant media figures as Rupert Murdoch, Robert Maxwell and Kelvin Mackenzie, Press Gang also examines the trends, the biases and the impact of the Press as we know it today.

The book also considers editorial content at key moments in history, analysing the impact on public attitudes of what papers publish. Please click here to ask a question
