  • Description The Financial Times Historical Archive delivers the complete run of the London edition of this internationally known daily paper, from its first issue through 2010. Every article, advertisement and market listing is included — shown both individually and in the context of the full page and issue of the day. It began as a City of London news sheet and grew to become one of the best-known and most-respected newspapers in the world. This historical archive is a comprehensive, accurate and unbiased research tool for everyone studying the economic and business history and current affairs of the last 120 years. Initially focused on the global financial and economic issues that were to become the predominant forces of the twentieth century, the Financial Times expanded coverage in the post war years, reporting on topics such as industry, energy and international politics. In more recent decades, coverage of management, personal finance and the arts has been added. Today, with more full-time foreign correspondents than any other European newspaper, a wider readership internationally than in the UK, worldwide circulation of nearly 500,000 and estimated global readership of more than 1.3 million people, the Financial Times is recognized as the complete newspaper for the business sector throughout the world. It is also accessible through Gale NewsVault and can be cross-searched with other Gale newspaper collections. (Not updated)
