"By 1914, largely through his own efforts, Northcliffe had become a formidable force in Edwardian England, and his stature was only increased by the stresses the Great War placed on British society. In fact, the period between August 1914 and November 1918 marked the pinnacle of his power and influence. Politicians, the Press, and Propaganda addresses a wide range of topics - the Great War, journalism, propaganda, censorship, the use and misuse of power, Northcliffe's preoccupation with America, and his influence on David Lloyd George - and will appeal to those interested in the history of modern journalism as well as twentieth-century British history."--Jacket."
