9780080372570: The Spiegel Story

"So began the most spectacular venture in post-war European journalism" stated Anthony Sampson in The New Europeans describing the founding of Der Spiegel in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War. This book, written by the former Economics Editor of the magazine, traces the controversial history of Der Spiegel from 1946 through to the early 1960s. It paints a graphic picture of the economic, social and political conditions in which a disparate group of people negotiated the right to produce a publication representing their idea of press freedom. It is a story of heroes and villains: heroes such as Major Chaloner, the British Army Information Officer who initiated the project and supported the magazine without reservation, and villains from the German establishment, who have always regarded the magazine as a thorn in their side. The emphasis throughout is on the personal commitment of individuals to ideals of freedom and democracy, and the problems in translating them into producing an innovatory news magazine. This book is not a balanced, critical history of Der Spiegel , it is the personal, anecdotal memoir of a participant in the creation of a publishing phenomenon.
