December 5, 2018 — Dundurn Press is thrilled to congratulate author Robert Lewis, whose book Power, Prime Ministers and the Press has been longlisted for the 2019 RBC Taylor Prize!

A deep dive into the history of the parliamentary press in Canada, Lewis paints an intimate portrait of the men and women who have have covered the news in Canada for 150 years, from Confederation to the modern age, and asks the vital question, “Does the free press still matter?

The RBC Taylor Prize jury called Power, Prime Ministers and the Press “a timely and welcome reminder of the importance of a free and challenging press in times of political change.…Lewis adroitly uses deep archival research and dozens of current interviews to show how the power-and-press relationship has changed — and not always for the better."

Congratulations, Robert Lewis!

Robert Lewis spent twelve years as a parliamentary correspondent and seven years as Maclean’s editor-in-chief. He has also been the vice president of content development at Rogers Media, and he is a former chair of the Canadian Journalism Foundation. He lives in Toronto.
