Mail Men is the gripping, unofficial story of an institution that has become the self-proclaimed voice of middle England, and the adversary of liberals everywhere. Journalist Adrian Addison investigates the secret behind the Mail's extraordinary longevity and commercial success but also examines the controversies that have beset the paper - from its owner's flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with liberals, celebrities and politicians today. Revelatory and captivating, this book also gets under the skin of Paul Dacre, the once awkward reporter who has become one of the most feared, hated, secretive, and respected editors in Britain. This is an essential read if you wish to understand modern Britain.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Wonderfully gossipy and detailed... What a waste nobody has turned the early years of the Daily Mail into a television miniseries * The Sunday Times *
Riotously entertaining... [Many] will find that Addison has written the expose of the Mail that they always wanted to read * New Statesman *
Tremendous... A very timely and important account of a modern phenomenon... A damned good read * Stephen Fry *
A rollicking, often compelling read * Observer *
Mail Men tells you all you need to know about the inner workings of the paper that brings politicians quaking to beg its favour. This well-informed, diamond-sharp analysis of the Mail phenomenon explains why it dominates England's political culture... A riveting read * Polly Toynbee *
An illuminating history... which charts the Mail's journey from pioneer to pillar of the British media industry * The Financial Times *
A gripping and very funny account of the newspaper [that] reveals its brutal brilliance ... surprisingly jaunty... The portrait of the Mail he paints shows that the newspaper is not as bad as some people say: it is even worse. * Prospect magazine *
Excellent... The inside story of how the Daily Mail became a much-feared national institution * Choice magazine *
Riveting... undoubtedly one of the best non-fiction books of the year * Hot Press *
