Abstract : "Victorian Britain had two players of colossal influence on the world stage: Lord Palmerston - the dominant figure in foreign affairs in the mid-nineteenth century - and "The Times" - the first global newspaper, read avidly by statesmen around the world. Palmerston was also one of the first real media-manipulating politicians of the modern age, forging close links with a number of publications to create the so-called 'Palmerston press'. His relationship with "The Times", however, was turbulent and became a prolonged and bitter rivalry. For "The Times", Palmerston was no more than 'a flippant dandy'; to Palmerston, "The Times" was a treacherous 'liar'. In this book, Laurence Fenton explores the highly-charged rivalry between these two titans of the mid-Victorian era, revealing the personal and political differences at the heart of an antagonism that stretched over the course of three decades."--Publisher's website
