(National Book Critics Circle Award finalist) Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, a single family has controlled America's newspaper of record, setting the agenda not only for the New York Times but for the nation as well. In a narrative that dramatically evokes world events, internecine struggles, and both the privilege and the burden of wealth and influence, this book by Pulitzer Prize–winning former Times reporter Alex Jones and former Time magazine editor Susan Tifft reveals the extraordinary story of the Ochs-Sulzberger publishing dynasty.

"The book is part family soap opera, with ill-fated marriages and career moves, and part world history. Major news events of the time—the McCarthy era, the Cuban missile crisis, the civil rights struggle—are background for a saga of family solidarity and single-minded purpose. The various relationships between family members and a succession of powerful presidents, politicians, businesspeople, and world leaders are well drawn and provide astute commentary on the influence the New York Times has wielded. Tifft and Jones also chronicle the changes in journalism in the past 100 years. They detail the succession struggles from the stewardship of Adolph Ochs to Arthur Sulzberger Jr., and the trust agreement that keeps the family in possession into the foreseeable future. The authors provide an excellent account of how the Ochs-Sulzberger trust continues to hold the family at the helm of the Times whereas other newspaper dynasties have fallen apart."—Booklist
