This stunning and cutting-edge package provides access to
the world as reflected in its most influential and
respected newspaper. From wars and political assassinations
to social movements and space exploration, all the news
that is fit to print—or download—can be found in this
extraordinary book-and-DVD set.
More than 300 of the most significant New York Times front
pages have been carefully selected and beautifully
reproduced in the book. Read the headlines and stories
covering such world-changing events as Abraham Lincoln's
assassination, Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight,
Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, Martin Luther King,
Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, and the September 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks. Ten foldouts present twenty key front
pages at their magnificent full size. News summaries
throughout highlight the most significant events of each
era and put the front pages into a historical context.
Seventeen insightful essays by prominent Times writers
comment on pivotal moments, including "The End of Slavery"
by William Safire, "Women’s Suffrage" by Gail Collins,
and "The Age of Television" by Frank Rich.
The 3 DVDs include each of the 54,266 front pages printed
by the Times over the past 157 years. Completely searchable
and user-friendly, the disks are designed to provide access
to the full stories that made front-page news each day
since the paper’s founding in 1851. Click on a page—the day
you were born, for example—and you're instantly transported
to the Times' online archive.
The New York Times: The Complete Front Pages is the
ultimate gift for history buffs, news junkies, students,
and anyone who strives to be well-informed.
