Rachel Beer was both a rebel and a pioneer. In the late nineteenth century, at a time when women were still denied the vote, she became the first woman ever to edit a national British newspaper - in fact two, The Sunday Times and The Observer. It was to be over eighty years before another woman took the helm of a Fleet Street paper. However, whilst other female journalists were restricted to frocks, frills and frippery, Rachel managed to raise her formidable voice on national and foreign political issues - including the notorious Dreyfus Affair - as well as on social and women's issues, often controversially. Drawing on a wealth of original material, The First Lady of Fleet Street paints a vivid picture of a remarkable woman and of the times in which she lived. It also provides an important history of two venerable Jewish families, their origins and their rise to eminence.

Review:

"An extraordinary story - all credit to the authors for giving the first lady of Fleet Street the byline she deserves." Daisy Goodwin, Sunday Times "Negev and Koren have handsomely made up for the information deficit - this is the first look at the extraordinary Rachel Beer." The Observer
