Summary

Originally published in 1970. This book takes an extremely critical look at the British Press and explodes complacently held views of the time about the merits and virtues of British newspapers. From its polemical introduction by the editor it continues with chapters by a strong host of contributors to set the press in historical context, consider Fleet Street’s methods, and look at the effect of advertising. Particular aspects investigated are that of women’s journalism, sport, financial journalism and reviewing. Final chapters look at the underground, fringe press, provincial papers, and a comparison with other countries’ press.
