It's impossible to understand today's modern media world without reading this brilliant book. Highly recommended!" -Douglas Brinkley, author of The Quiet WorldIn the vein of Alan Brinkley's The Publisher: Henry Luce and His American Century and Katharine Graham's Personal History comes the first comprehensive chronicle of the Medill family-a riveting true story of the country's first media dynasty whose power and influence shaped the story of America for four generations.
