Synopsis: With a supporting cast of well-known literary names around him, Newhouse is the king of New York’s cultural world today—as owner of Random House, the nation’s largest book publishing empire; publisher of such influential magazines as "The New Yorker," "Vanity Fair," "Vogue," and "Wired;" and by controlling dozens of other newspapers, magazines, and cable television franchises in the United States and around the world.
Author Thomas Maier examines the rags-to-riches saga of the Newhouse family and how they built a privately-held empire estimated at $13 billion. He tells the personal story of how "Si" Newhouse emerged from the shadow of his demanding father to expand the family fortune further than anyone ever imagined, with his mercurial "off-with-their-heads" management style.
This unauthorized investigative biography explores Newhouse’s reliance on his long-time friend Roy Cohn, a lawyer for the Mafia and a confidant to top politicians, and how the family managed to beat the IRS in a $1 billion tax battle. Like a message in a time bottle, "Newhouse" describes our celebrity-driven media age, a real-life allegory for the 1990s when communications giants like Newhouse’s Advance Publications, Inc., gobbled up everything in sight. This book raises strong warnings about a media monopoly in America, controlled by a handful of powerful men like Si Newhouse, and underlines the serious ways in which journalism has been transformed.
About the Author: Thomas Maier has been an investigative and business reporter for New York Newsday since 1984, and previously worked at the Chicago Sun-Times. He has won several national and regional journalism honors, including the National Society of Professional Journalists’ top reporting prize in 1987 for a series on police misconduct. He co-authored another Newsday series about the nation’s waste crisis which won the national Worth Bingham award and later was published as a book, "The Rush to Burn," Island Press, 1989. At the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, he won the John Patterson award for television documentary-making and his documentary, "The Mob, the Merchants and the Fulton Fish Market," was broadcast by WNET/Channel 13. He later received a John McCloy Journalism Fellowship to Europe, which is awarded by the Columbia Journalism School and the American Council on Germany. In New York, he has won the Page One Award for Crusading Journalism, the 1990 Society of Silurians’ Excellence in Journalism Award, and three first-place awards from the New York State Associated Press Association. He is a member of Newsday’s "Greene Team" investigative unit and was a frequent contributor to Newsday’s Sunday magazine, where the reporting began for this book about the Newhouse empire. Maier lives with his wife Joyce McGurrin and their three sons in Long Island, New York.

Book Description Johnson Books 1997 Paperback, 1997. Book Condition: Very Good. Newhouse is the first full-scale biography of the turbulent life and business career of Samuel I. Newhouse, Jr., who could arguably be described as the most powerful private citizen in America. Controlling a fortune estimated to be in excess of thirteen billion dollars, Si and his brother Donald are richer than the Queen of England, or Bill Gates, or Ross Perot, or any of the Kennedys, Rockefellers, or Hearsts. But Newhouse is not primarily about the accumulation of money by a family that two generations ago was literally impoverished. Rather, it is a book about power. 476 pages.
