Description

This title explores the rise and rise of the ‘Daily Mail’, Britain’s most profitable newspaper, from its founding by the Harmsworth brothers in 1896, to turning ‘compact’ in 1971 and becoming the world’s biggest newspaper website in 2011. Charting the controversy that has always dogged the publication – from its flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with celebrities today, Addison explains how the divisive paper has shaped British journalism and, indeed, Britain itself.
