From the cover: Before movies, radio, and television challenged the hegemony of the printed word, the Saturday Evening Post was the preeminent vehicle of mass culture in the United States. And to the extent that a mass medium can be the expression of a single individual, this magazine with a peak circulation of almost three million copies a week was the expression of its editor, George Horace Lorimer. Cohn shows how Lorimer made the Post into a uniquely powerful magazine that both celebrated and helped to form the values of its time.
Very Good. Upper wrapper slighty curled otherwise a very well presented copy.
