Overall the book goes beyond strict reporting of facts and offers a great deal of insight into the thoughts and feelings that characterized the period and its history makers. Hudson�s approach is informal, for example, he dumps his sources in one huge pile early-on in the book, leaving the reader to discover for themselves what references go with what text. He offers only an index. While Hudson does an excellent job of being comprehensive and connecting events, I would consider his work a draft rather than a final product, since he obviously left a lot undone.
Hudson does seem to be favorably biased toward the press throughout the book leaving you with the feeling that the press is a beloved grandchilde who �can do no wrong.� Whether it�s a cat fight or legal fight, Hudson seems to see each historical action of the press as a necessary step in a magnificent history. Hindsight, they say, is twenty twenty. But I would add, that even there, you have the near-sighted.
