Abstract

This chapter examines the emergence of the popular press in Europe in the late-1800s and early-1900s. It considers commonalities and variances in how the popular press developed in four distinctive case-study countries: Britain, Portugal, Russia, and Germany. The case-studies offer west/east and large/small nation perspectives on the popular press’s emergence, and represent a range of technological, political, economic, cultural and social contexts to the reshaping of the newspaper as a mass media form. The chapter also highlights the advanced industrial basis of newspaper production and distribution, as well as the professionalization of journalism, that supported the popular press’s growth.
