A Century of Sundays: 100 Years of Breaking News in the Sunday Times (1906-2006)

BookBucks Review and collect 20 points.
In 2006, the Sunday Times celebrates 100 years as South Africa's most successful newspaper. This title is a collection of articles and photographs that have appeared in its pages over those hundred years, and follows the stunning success of four commemorative supplements published in the newspaper. It is a record of how the newspaper covered big events, and little ones, since its first edition on 4 February 1906. Looking at the past through the eyes of the newspaper, it is a chronicle of the attitudes and prejudices exactly as they appeared in the newspaper at the time. While it celebrates excellent journalism, it also reveals where the paper got things wrong, such as the editorial in 1948 which confidently predicted that DF Malan's bizarre social experiment called apartheid would not last beyond that year. The title does not only track political events, but also fashion, culture, entertainment, sport, technology and many other developments in South Africa and the world over the past century.
