Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
In Harold Evanss classic memoir, he tells the inside story of Rupert Murdochs takeover of the Times of London and Murdochs rise to become a global media power
In 1981, Harold Evans was the editor of one of Britains most prestigious publications, the Sunday Times, which had thrived under his watch. When Australian publishing baron Rupert Murdoch bought the daily Times of London, he persuaded Evans to become its editor with guarantees of editorial independence. But after a year of broken promises and conflict over the papers direction, Evans departed amid an international media firestorm.
Evanss story is a gripping, behind-the-scenes look at Murdochs ascension to global media magnate. It is Murdoch laid bare, an intimate account of a man using the power of his media empire for his own ends. Riveting, provocative, and insightful, Good Times, Bad Times is as relevant today as when it was first written.
This ebook features a new preface by the author, in which he discusses the Rupert Murdoch phone-hacking scandal.
