Newspaper History of South Africa - 6th Edition
This is the 6th revised edition of A Newspaper History of South Africa which was first published in 1976.
This highly successful title takes a lively and penetrating look at events that hit the headlines during the past 132 years, from the Discovery of Gold in 1886 to the Rise of Ramaphosa in 2018. The scope of the book is vast, embracing war, murder, politics, trials, sport and disaster. It includes accounts of human endeavour and failing, of courage and bravery, and of vicious deeds of death and destruction.
Throughout the book the emphasis is on the newspapers' handling of each event and on the individuals who made history. As such the book stands as a tribute to the oft-maligned and unrecognized journalists of our time, some of whom had to endure severe restrictions imposed on the press during the apartheid era.
A Newspaper History of South Africa presents a unique and compelling view of history.
