Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Named one of the best books of the year by the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, Business Week, and GQ, THE CHIEF: THE LIFE OF WILLIAM RANDLOPH HEARST is "an absorbing and ingeniously organized biography . . . of the most powerful publisher America has ever known" (New York Times Book Review). Drawing on papers and interviews that were previously unavailable, as well as on newly released documentation of interactions with such figures as Hitler, Mussolini, Churchill, every president from Grover Cleveland to Franklin Roosevelt, and movie giants Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Irving Thalberg, David Nasaw completes the picture of this colossal American "engagingly, lucidly and fair-mindedly" (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.).
"Outstandingly researched, elegantly but not flamboyantly written, and fair in its conclusions about Hearst's astonishing career" (Wall Street Journal), THE CHIEF "must be regarded as the definitive study . . . It's hard to imagine a more complete rendering of Hearst's life" (Business Week).


Review:

"David Nasaw's absorbing and ingeniously organized new biography might finally rescue Hearst from the curse of Kane."

Harold Evans, New York Times, 7/2/00

Review:

"In THE CHIEF: THE LIFE OF WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST, David Nasaw offers a fresh biography of this legendary newspaper publisher and power-broker, drawing on a wealth of newly available archival materials....THE CHIEF provides a telling glimpse of the media industry at one of its earliest moments of transition from civic trust to profit center."

E. Thomas Wood, bookpage.com, June 2000
