To set the phone-hacking scandals that have surrounded Rupert Murdoch's media empire, News Corp in context, Folkenflik's book goes back to Murdoch's roots in Australia, provides a history of the company and explores the dynamics of the Murdoch family and the world they inhabit. He explains how the man behind the News of the World managed to survive the outcry over tapping the phone of a murdered teenager, and the true cost of that survival.
