The Trust: The Private and Powerful Family Behind the New York Times
DescriptionA National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, The Trust is the "eye-opening" biography (Newsweek) of the Ochses and the Sulzbergers, the families that have owned and run The New York Times for more than a century.
Throughout the tumultuous "American century," a single family 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, The Trust reveals for the first time the extraordinary story of one of America's most powerful families.
"A lively, lavishly detailed epic...The authors have the journalist's instinct for telling the right story." --Ron Chernow, New York Times Book Review
