In this concise biography one of the 20th century's most influential magazine publishers, James L. Baughman describes Henry R. Luce's career and assesses his lasting contributions to American journalism. In 1923, Luce founded "Time", an innovative magazine that revolutionized the news media. He went on to start such magazines as "Fortune", "Life" and "Sports Illustrated". Baughman challenges the widely held assumption that Luce wielded extraordinary political power through his publications. His real significance in American history, Baughman concludes, lay instead in his impact on the press. Even as new technologies transform journalism once again, Luce's legacy continues to influence how the news is reported and understood. In a new afterword, Baughman chronicles the history of Time Inc. since its mergers with Warner and AOL.
