429 pp, 8vo (9" H). B&w illustrations. "Millions of people every day buying newspapers or reading magazines react to the news as published by the Southam Press. How did the Press get its power? How do they use it? Charles Bruce's book, at once a biography of a family and a history of their publishing enterprise, answers the questions and illuminates a long avenue of Canadian history. The story of Southam Press is a bright montage of news and personalities showing more than a century of Canadian development, and in telling it Charles Bruce provides a skilful blend of newsmen and newsmakers, editors and politicians, heroes and murderers, scoops and scandals." Very faint cigarette odour, very light edge wear, tiny bump to two corners. Dust jacket has one very small edge tear, a few areas of light edge wrinkling.
