The Daily Herald was the most important attempt by the British left to counter the right-wing political bias of the national press. At its height, the Herald was selling more copies than any other newspaper in the world with the exception of Pravda. In the first thorough study of the Daily Herald, Huw Richards explores the fascinating history of the paper from its role in 1912 as an independently owned radical newspaper aimed at political activists, to its transition into commercial publishing and its subsequent demise in 1964. Drawing on source material in the Labour Party and TUC archives, he examines both the content of the paper and the background to its publication.
