Most of the propaganda books I have read to date have been by a single author – which is one of the reasons why Propaganda, Power and Persuasion: From World War I to Wikileaks was such a nice change of pace.
Academic writing can be a bit dry, but the condensed nature of these chapters, each sharing a short glimpse into different aspects and examples of propaganda up until pretty recently made for a good, engaging read. Overall, every chapter, except one, was well-worth the time, making this a highly recommended reading for those who want a practical introduction into propaganda and how it is changing with the times.
What makes this book great are the different perspectives tackling the subject, including a look at British military doctrine in relation to propaganda by Dr. Kate Utting.
Propaganda, Power and Persuasion: From World War I to Wikileaks is available at Amazon.
