Product description


The first edition of "Katharine the Great", Deborah Davis's biography of "Washington Post" and "Newsweek" owner Katharine Graham, was issued by Harcourt Brace in 1979. After six weeks, the publisher caved in to pressure from Mrs Graham by recalling and shredding 20,000 copies of the book, even though it had already been nominated for an American Book Award. This new, much-expanded and updated edition includes every word of the original plus new material on the post-Watergate years as well as documentary proof of Ms. Davis's revelations about Post editor Ben Bradlee. "Katharine the Great" covers many of the major issues and characters of 20th century Washington. On a personal level, it includes the stark portrayal of the unravelling of Katharine's husband Phil and an intimate view of the heights of power to which America's most powerful woman has risen since Watergate.
