Joseph Pulitzer: Historic Newspaper Publisher

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-8–This series covers a wide range of familiar, but not extensively covered, figures who played critical roles in the world of publishing. The writing can occasionally feel sensationalized (“Fate was again about to send Joseph Pulitzer in a different direction”), but the research is solid and there are extensive source notes. The books provide detailed coverage of the subjects' achievements as well as a discussion of their quirks (Melvil Dewey's campaign for spelling reform being of particular interest). With marbled borders and an array of photographs, maps, diagrams, and document reproductions, these books have an engaging and pleasing design. An unusual feature is the “Places to Visit” section, which suggests locations around the world that have relevant collections or displays. Primarily for report writers, these books offer a closer look at some unique individuals.
