Death, Sex and Money by Michael Young

Book Description

What was it like being at the news desk on the evening of September 11 2001? Or when the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated on re-entry in February 2003? Or when the tsunami hit on Boxing Day 2004? Death, Sex and Money is an open window into the frenetic world of journalism, and how editors fill the pages of a newspaper every day. Veteran journalist Michael Young takes readers behind the masthead to reveal the players involved in writing, editing and producing the modern newspaper. Experience life at a chaotic news desk, and see first-hand how news is collected and the big stories covered. What emerges is the changing definition of news, and how newspapers have had to adapt to the twenty-first century in the ever-present shadow of the internet, blogs and citizen journalism, shrinking formats and falling circulation.

Postcards of the Army Service Corps 1902 - 1918 by Michael Young Postcards of the Army Service Corps 1902 - 1918, Hardback (September 2016)

King James and the History of Homosexuality by Michael Young King James and the History of Homosexuality, Hardback (September 2016)

James VI & I had a series of notorious male favourites. These affairs were almost certainly sexual. They diminished the majesty of the monarchy and raised the spectre of a sodomitical court and effeminized nation. It is a story of political intrigue coloured by sodomy, pederasty, and gender instability as backdrop to the English Civil War.
