10,000 Not Out: The History of The Spectator 1828 – 2020

£25.00

As well as being the world’s oldest current affairs magazine, none has been closer over the last 2 centuries to spheres of power & influence in Britain. First issued in 1828, during the dying days of the Georgian era, The Spectator came out ready to spar – with the Tories & their Prime Minister, the Duke of Wellington, with a corrupt political system, & with the lacklustre literary world of the day. Over the subsequent 52 Prime Ministers, The Spectator has not only watched the world change but waded into the fray: it has campaigned on consistently liberal lines, fighting for voters’ rights, free trade, the free press & the decriminalisation of homosexuality, while offering open-minded criticism of every modern taboo & orthodoxy. This book celebrates the 10,000th issue & recounts the turbulent & tortuous tale of 192 years chock-full of crises & campaigns, of literary flair & barbed wit.
