The Successor: the High-Stakes Life of Lachlan Murdoch, Black Inc., Melbourne, 2022

As heir apparent to his father’s global media empire, Lachlan Murdoch is one of the world’s most powerful people. Yet despite a life in the spotlight, Lachlan’s personality, politics and business acumen remain enigmatic. Is he a risk-loving adventurer or dutiful son? Ultra-conservative ideologue or thoughtful libertarian? Scarred by a series of spectacular business failures, or an underrated leader who has shrewdly repositioned his family’s assets? And will the third generation of Murdoch moguls prove the last? (blurb)

The book is reviewed for Honest History by Richard Broinowski. Other reviews: Australian Book Review (paywall);  Crikey; Guardian. Honest History document on Keith Murdoch, Lord Northcliffe and WM Hughes during World War I.
