Richard A. Schwarzlose's long-awaited two-volume The Nation's Newsbrokers makes a major contribution to the history of journalism in the United States. Schwarzlose traces the development of the Associated Press and the predecessors of United Press International from scattered beginnings in the 1840s to their emergence as a mature national institution in the World War I era.

Volume 2 studies the rapid growth of intercity news gathering and distribution after the Civil War, including the deterioration into collusion among newsbrokers, and changes in technology and reporting within the context of attempts to monopolize the flow of information.
