Popular newspapers played a vital role in shaping British politics, society and culture in the twentieth century. This book provides a concise and accessible historical overview of the rise of the tabloid format and examines how the national press reported the major stories of the period, from World Wars and general elections to sex scandals and celebrity gossip. It considers the appeal and influence of the most successful titles, such as the 'Daily Mail', the 'Daily Mirror', the 'Daily Express 'and the 'Sun', and explores the emergence of the key elements of the modern popular newspaper, such as editorial campaigns, women's pages, advice columns, and pin-ups. Using a wealth of examples from across the century, the authors explain how tabloids provided an important forum for the discussion of social identities such as class, gender, sexuality and ethnicity, and how they scrutinised public figures with increasing intensity. In the wake of recent controversies about tabloid practices, this timely book provides the historical context to enable a proper assessment of how the popular press helped to define twentieth-century Britain.

Críticas:

«Tabloid Century is thankfully not the straightforwardly descriptive and linear history of the tabloid press that its subtitle suggests. Not that it eschews linearity nor description. Readers unfamiliar with the fledgling birth of the newspaper tabloid in the very late 19th century, its true launch in the 1930s, explosion from the 1960s, and its recent internet-driven downfall, will find the introduction tremendously illuminating. But they will see that it is not content with simply mapping the rise and fall of the main titles (Daily Mail, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, Daily Herald, The Sun) and press barons (Northcliffe, Rothermere, Beaverbrook, Murdoch) of the successive periods. It also carefully parses out the various cultural, economic, and technical drivers of the tabloid model's phenomenal success.»
(Marc Calvini-Lefebvre, E-rea 15.1/2017)

(Jürgen Wilke, H-Soz-Kult 12/2015)

«This is an informed and wide-ranging introduction to the history of the British popular press during the 20th century.»
(European Journal of Communication 2016)
