Abstract:

Today, in the aftermath of UPI's tragic plummet, it is still hard to believe that a journalistic institution with a tradition of excellence so hard earned and well deserved could have been allowed to self-destruct and almost disappear. The authors- who together have a combined forty-three years of experience at UPI- tell a stunning, insiders' tale of intrigue, mismanagement, financial gymnastics, greed, and lust for power. The story, spiced with heroics and betrayals, comedy, and pathos, provides an extraordinary glimpse into how UPI was dragged from the ranks of the world's media giant. -- Book Jacket.
