Biographer James McGrath Morris's groundbreaking new work, Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power, begins with Joseph Pulitzer's early years in Missouri state politics and journalism, to his work at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and later role as owner and publisher of the New York World. Based on a wealth of previously unknown material--such as the unpublished memoirs of Pulitzer's brother, formerly secret government documents, and financial and business papers found ina St. Louis trash bin--Pulitzer is the first full-scale biography in more than a generation of this seminal figure. Timely and compelling, Pulitzer illustrates the evolving landscape of American journalism and tells the remarkable story behind the birth of modern mass media.
