In today’s turbulent times, the newspaper’s political coverage is more relevant than ever; not only for the news itself, but because of For 167 years, The New York Times has been in the forefront of political reporting—from memorable campaigns and elections to controversial legislation, scandals, and issues ranging from immigration, race, and gender to the economy and war. In today’s turbulent times, the newspaper’s political coverage is more relevant than ever; not only for the news itself, but because of the paper’s leadership in defending the freedom of the press. Compiled by noted New York Times editor Andrew Rosenthal, this anthology explores the newspaper’s broad scope of unparalleled political coverage and examines what has changed over the decades and what remains the same. Covering stories from 1856 to 2018, it features presidential milestones: the astounding 1860 triumph of Republicanism with Abraham Lincoln’s election and Senator Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential victory as racial barriers seemed, perhaps prematurely, to fall. Wars: the start of the atomic age, the fall of Saigon, the conflict in Iraq. Important legal issues like the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920, the 2000 Florida presidential recount, and same-sex marriage. The course of the country’s economy, such as the 2008 financial disaster and President Donald Trump’s tax overhaul. Momentous protests, like the 1963 March for Civil Rights, Kent State, the takeover of Wounded Knee, Black Lives Matter, and the MeToo movement. Political scandals and investigations, from Watergate to the firing of F.B.I. director James B. Comey. And so much more. With 60 photographs as well as reproductions of front-page stories, here are the noteworthy political articles from The New York Times archives that are sure to engross readers. Included are stories on tumultuous campaigns and surprising elections, scandals that rocked the world, the waging of war—from “good” wars (World Wars I and II) to “bad” wars (Vietnam), groundbreaking legislation, important protests, and hot button issues like feminism, LGBTQ rights, and DACA.

    Nice collection of news articles written by NY Times authors over a span of the last 150 years, although most were in the later of those years. I learned some things about what happened in those times, some before I was born and many during my lifetime which I hadn't paid as much attention to at those times. The book is very much like reading a newspaper. You can scan the headlines, read some articles in depth, skim over some others, in no particular order.
