Description - Politics and the Rise of the Press by Bob Harris
This volume compares the rise of the newspaper press in Britain and France, and assesses how it influenced political life and political culture. From its social, economic and political sources, to its importance for the middling ranks in 18th-century British society, and its transformation after the French revolution, the author demonstrates the significance of the emergence of the newspaper for the two countries. This detailed, comparative account, which also contains research on the early Scottish press, should be of value to all students of French and British history of the period.
