This book gives a unique insight into the worls of provincial newspaper publishing in a North Wales town during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Wrexham's position on the Welsh border meant that its local newspapers had to compete with those from Shropshire, Cheshire, and the rest of North Wales and this rivalry, together with differing political allegiances, often led to conflict between proprietors in the effort to gain the highest circulation. The book draws together the batttles to establish succcessful titles against the backdrop of British and Welsh politics and reveals the personalities involved in this microcosm of local society.
