Overview

The Magnificent Medills: America's Royal Family of Journalism During a Century of Turbulent Splendor by Megan McKinney

"A knock-out dynastic history about the world of journalism. In The Magnificent Medills we learn how a single family forever changed Chicago and America. It's impossible to understand today's modern media world without reading this brilliant book. Highly recommended!" —Douglas Brinkley, author of The Quiet World

In the vein of Alan Brinkley's The Publisher: Henry Luce and His American Century and Katharine Graham's Personal History comes the first comprehensive chronicle of the Medill family—a riveting true story of the country’s first media dynasty whose power and influence shaped the story of America for four generations.
