Overview

Excerpt from Northcliffe, Britain's Man of Power

An ancient saying, "The hand that wields the pen holds the scepter of government," has been strikingly illustrated in the career of Lord Northchffe. Essentially a product of this age, he represents that vast development of modern times which controls governments and sways nations, - the power of the press.

A genius in business-building, world-famous as a journalist and newspaper owner. Lord Northcliffe has become the most forceful and dominating figure in British public life. He was, above all else, the first man to arouse the English people to the importance of strenuous and efficient methods in conducting war.
