Title: Newspaper Lords in British Politics.
Description: Macdonald, London, 1958, first edition.. 63 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "There is hardly a more remarkable period in modern British politics, or in the history of the press, than those years when the big newspaper lords determined the attitude of governments and even the most important decisions. Viscounts Northcliffe and Rothermere, Barons Riddell and Dalziel are dead. Baron Beaverbrook, who was a factor in major decisions in the first and second world wars, is still active, and s t i l l a power in Britain. This short book is a revealing account of this period and of the life and personality of Lord Beaverbrook, and gains point and interest from the fact that its author is a Parliamentarian widely known for his contributi on t o in t er n ational affairs." Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light to moderate edge wear, small chips and tears - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few edge creases, light browning on inside of spine and flap-folds.
