The Press Book Paperback / softback


From the author of an acclaimed study on women's magazines comes the definitive history of one of the most enduring but ever-changeable consumer items of the late 20th and 21st centurynewspapers and magazines.This studydetails the triumphs and travails of the popular post-war press, with a litany of names that will evoke nostalgiaas well as some that provoked outrage on their emergence of a defining era.

From "Family Circle" to "Loaded," "Picture Post" to "Zoo," and from "Eagle" to "Hello! "the decades after the war have brought readers a carousel of titles that could be intellectually stimulating in one decade while morally bankrupt in the next.Penned by a press professional who saw it all happen and has some interesting ideasabout what lies ahead, thisis a fascinating story with a host of riveting characters."
