Editorial Reviews


"There are few more combistible combinations than a father, a son, and a newspaper chain. . . . The story is told effectively ... and is an excellent addition to the flourishing Illinois 'History of Communications' series."--Columbia Journalism Review

"Zacher's account ... is detailed and often absorbing.  Based on scrupulous research in the Scripps organization's archives, he leaves few stones unturned."--American Historical Review

 "Straightforward, rich in detail, and free of scholarly abstruseness and jargon. . . . Highly recommended."--Choice

“Zacher has dug deep into the Scripps archives to tell [a story] about the tensions surrounding the coverage of war—or of any national crisis—and how they can affect the ideals to which journalists cling.”--Journalism History
“This study is valuable not only for expanding what we know of the Scripps empire, but also for what is perhaps the first case study of how a large news media organization adapted to the challenges of World War I.”--American Journalism
“Provides new insights into the chain’s decision making in wartime.”--Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly
