Reviews

'The News of the World was one of the most important publications in the history of the press in the British Isles. This collection of stimulating and scholarly essays provides the first, detailed examination of its history and is essential reading for anyone interested in the press and its changing role in British society since the 1840s.' - Professor Tom O'Malley, Aberystwyth University, UK
