From the cover: “The great newspaper proprietors are legendary. How great was the real power of these press barons? Were they, and are they today, able to dictate events and bring down governments? What is the power of the press? Louis Heren, with his wealth of inside knowledge on the subject, recounts the incidents that both inflated their influence and exposed their limitations, leading to the rise and fall of famous newspaper titles and proprietors all over the English-speaking world. He traces the history of the press in Britain, the United States and Australia from the eighteenth century through the developing printing techniques to the arrival of the popular newspapers and Murdoch’s controversial takeover of the London Times in 1981.”
