'This is an important and timely book... full of original perceptions on the historical relationship between journalism and politics, in Australia and America as well as Britain. It is also a sharp warning that the guardians of our city are about to open its gates once again to a man who has shown that he cannot be trusted' Godfrey Hodgson, NEW STATESMAN 'Spendid account...The author explodes many Murdoch myths, including that of his being anti-establishment ... [Bruce Page] wears his wide reading lighly, possessing an investigator's eye for details, an insider's expertise on the ways of the media and a democrat's drive for openness and accountability. This is an important book on commercial power and political freedom. Heard much about it from "New" Labour's Murdoch hacks?' John Booth, Tribune 'Brings fresh insights... This book is a powerful indictment of media monopoly and its threat to democratic society' DIRECTOR 'Bruce Page's remarkable account of Rupert Murdoch and his world... It is a challenging read - speculative and learned; and if you think you know Machiavelli or Vilfredo Pareto, think again' Jonathan Mirksy, LITERARY REVIEW 'Bruce Page has broken the routine circle with a critique of Murdoch which goes beyond almost all others in its unflinching attack on the man...important and alarming...valuable...penetrating analysis...a good book' WEST END EXTRA 'This is a very full life of the great manipulator, leaving no stone unturned' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
