Newly updated to 2012 and the Leveson Inquiry, Stick It Up Your Punter! is the classic story of the Sun newspaper, its part in the rise of Rupert Murdoch's business empire, and the extraordinary role it came to play in British society and politics. From Murdoch's purchase and rebranding of the old loss-making Sun in 1969, through the soaraway-successful and often scandalous years of success under foul-mouthed editor Kelvin MacKenzie, to the 'phone-hacking' disgrace of 2012 which put Murdoch's business affairs under scrutiny as never before - this is the story of the paper that, for better or worse, redefined 'tabloid journalism'. '[This] anarchic account... could be a script for Carry On Up Fleet Street.' Alan Rusbridger, Guardian 'The funniest book of the year, perhaps of the decade.' Times 'Splendidly racy.' Economist 'A story which social and political historians of the 20th century will not find easy to ignore.' London Review of Books
