When William T Stead died aboard the Titanic in 1912, he was the most famous Englishman on the ship. One of the inventors of the tabloid newspaper, his campaigning journalism launched military campaigns, exposed child prostitution and raised the age of consent. This collection of 13 essays recovers the extraordinary story of this advocate of world peace, campaigner for women's rights, radical, Christian, spiritualist, and key figure in the history of the British press.
