Press Gang Summary

Press Gang: How Newspapers Make Profits From Propaganda by Roy Greenslade

Tracing the changing face of British newspapers, Roy Greenslade shows how the way we live has been shaped by what we read. With the insight one would expect from the media commentator for the Guardian, the newspaper world is brought to life, from its dominance as a news force in the 1940s to the salacious world of the gutter press in the 1980s. 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 best history of the British press since [Francis] Williams ... an essential set text for students of journalism and the media' The Times

'Formidably complete and perceptive record of British journalism over the last 60 years' Observer
