Product description

Review

Closely researched and briskly written,Robinson's admirably thoughtful and economical biography does an excellent job of explaining one of the most extraordinary individuals in journalistic history.-- Sunday Times

A timely, well-written biography of the brilliant, flawed Victorian journalist. --Daily Mail

A lively and laconic biography. --London Review of Books

This compelling debut biography brings the seedy underbelly of Victorian journalism and its dodgiest practitioner brilliantly to life, conjuring up the hypocrisy of Victorian values. You couldn't make it up. --Sally Morris, Daily Mail

In this remarkably timely and entertaining biography, W. Sydney Robinson tells the story of British newspapers through the life of a man who, the historian argues, was also Britain's first investigative journalist... Equally fascinating are the insights into his personal life. --The Times

Will Robinson presents new material about Stead's life taken from his personal papers, previously suppressed by his wife, and gives us a rounded portrait of this father of journalistic campaigning. Even if you re not interested in the rise of investigative reporting, this is a remarkable story and worth a read. --Your Family Tree
