The History of the Times: The Murdoch Years, Volume 7
HarperCollins, 2005 - History - 727 pages
The third in a series chronicling the remarkable history of The Times newspaper and the media mogul who bought and reshaped it in the early 1980s. This volume looks at the history of one of Britain's most venerable newspapers since its takeover by Rupert Murdoch in 1981, and the many changes that took place in the turbulent years that followed. The account will encompass the media mogul's infamous clashes with the British printers' unions, culminating in 1986 with the Wapping dispute in which the power of the unions was decisively broken, with far-reaching implications for British trade unions and the media at large. Taking over from the late John Grigg, who wrote the previous two volumes in this series, Graham Stewart is a highly rated historian with a gift for depicting the complex characters who inhabit the upper echelons of power. With this book, he will provide valuable insight into the workings of one of the most controversial business leaders in the world today and the newspaper that helped shape his media empire.
