Description
Mining newspaper files and the archives of the interactive Newseum located in Washington, D.C., this book examines decisive issues and events in U.S. history, as well as the flavor of American life, through the nation's editorial pages. Some 50 editorials over 150 years address topics ranging from suffrage and race relations, war and politics, to personal loss and the meaning of Christmas, all accompanied by archival photos and illustrations. "The editorial is the soul of the newspaper. Maybe the heart and the soul," says Michael Gartner, who provides analysis throughout. "And, on a good newspaper that knows and understands and loves its hometown, or its home country, the editorial is the heart and the soul of the town, or the nation, as well."
