'The history of The Economist is fascinating both because it is the story of a great and influential journal and because of its response to all the great issues of the day, from the Irish famine (it did not know what to do) to women's suffrage (inconsistent) and from hanging (always against) to privatization (passionately for).' A suitably weighty tome.
