The power of news : the history of Reuters, 1849-1989 by Donald Read( Book )

44 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of Reuters, the international news agency. In 1851 Julius Reuter set up the London organization which was eventually to extend throughout most of the world. Over a century later, Reuters was first with the news of the erection of the Berlin Wall in 1961, and then first with the story of its breaching in 1989. The Power of News is a fascinating account of the company which for over 140 years has brought us history as it is being made. Donald Read's authoritative and readable history of Reuters shows how the company has always been in the forefront of communications technology, from the days of pigeon post and the first transatlantic cables to the age of the satellite and computer link. For a century Reuters was especially the news agency of the British Empire. As Britain's imperial power faded, Reuters moved into selling economic information to the world trading community, a venture that generated annual 'pre-tax profits of $280 million by the end of the 1980s. Equally lucrative was the flotation of Reuters as a public company in 1984, the full story of which is told here for the first time. Throughout all these exciting changes Reuters has tried to remain committed to 'truth in news', a commitment watched over by the Reuter Trust, created in 1941

This ambitious survey covers all aspects of the period in which English society acquired its modern shape -- industrial rather than agricultural, urban rather than rural, democratic in its institutions, and middle class rather than aristocratic in the control of political power. For this revised edition the footnotes and bibliography have been fully updated, and the entire text has been reset in a larger and more attractive format. An ideal introduction to the subject, it masters a huge amount of material through its clear structure, sensible judgements and approachable style

Never trust professors : ife and death on campus by Donald Read( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). All is not well at the 'new' University of Blackchester. Both staff and students are struggling with campus problems. There is a damaging rivalry between the Professors of History and English, not least about how to increase their student numbers. Too many girl students are involved in love affairs - not just with their fellow students but with their teachers and even with married lecturers. The faintest whiff of sexual misbehaviour on campus always finds the press howling for academic blood. One of Blackchester's sexual scandals in particular features in all the headlines. And of course these muckraking stories are read every morning by anxious parents. Who can they trust? 'Never Trust Professors' say the newspapers, spurred on especially by the Daily Express, which has a reporter on campus
