📒Propaganda ✍ Edward Bernay
📝Propaganda Book Synopsis : ""Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country." - Edward Bernays, Propaganda A seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays, was a pioneer in the scientific technique of manipulating public opinion. A technique he famously dubbed the "engineering of consent." But it was during World War I, that he became an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information, a shadowy but powerful propaganda apparatus which was mobilized to prepare, advertise and sell the great war to the American people. So they did it with the message "Make the World Safe for Democracy." This operation would become the defacto standard in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon.

📝Politics and Propaganda Book Synopsis : The twentieth century has been called the century of propaganda. This book explores the concept of propaganda in a genuinely multi-disciplinary way. It begins by defining what propaganda is and how it came into existence, before analysing the three concepts that underpin all propaganda - symbolism, rhetoric and myth. The book then looks at the key elements of propaganda, namely emotion, hyperbole, manipulation and utopla, before presenting a unique theory that the core of propoganda lies in a basic social construction of enmity. Points made in the book are backed up by illuminating case studies from recent history that focus on spin, the war in Afghanistan, single-issue groups, negative advertising, and a powerful final chapter analysing the war in Iraq in 2003.

📒Propaganda Techniques ✍ Henry T. Conserva
📝Propaganda Techniques Book Synopsis : Propaganda Techniques is a book designed to illustrate several of the many ways politicians, advertising writers and countless promoters try to control our thoughts. The readers of this book will become more aware of the countless and subtle ways in which they are being manipulated every day. Although initially this book was intended for use by teachers and students, I soon realized it would be useful for people in many other fields. Journalists, business people, sales people, police, counselors, advertisers, politicians, medical personnel and lawyers are just a few of the groups that would find this book useful. General readers would also find it stimulating and provocative. The eighty-nine selected techniques explained in the book are divided into seven sections; Faulty Logic Diversion and Evasion Appealing to the Emotions Using Falsehoods and Trickery Playing on Human Behavioral Tendencies, Mental Capacities and Processes Speaking or Writing Styles Reason or Common Sense The exercises at the end of the book will help the reader gain practice in using the propaganda techniques. The first exercise is for simplification of a persuasive message. A complex message loses effectiveness because most people lack the stamina to wade through a great deal of information to get to the point. The exercise for simplification calls for writing a summary of the Declaration of Independence so that the document will be reduced to a few paragraphs while maintaining the perceived intent of the author. This work should be very useful to all those trying to develop critical thinking skills.

📒The Art Of Persuasion ✍ Jane DeRose Evans
📝The Art of Persuasion Book Synopsis : Is political propaganda intended to be deceitful? Is it just a means of persuasion, of informing its audience where their best interests lie? The Art of Persuasion boldly examines this difficult and controversial question in the context of Republican Rome. With references to the book's numerous illustrations, Jane Evans convincingly argues that the images with which Romans adorned the buildings they sponsored, the types they struck on their coins, and the works of art they commissioned began to contain self-promoting references considerably earlier than scholars have generally thought. Through individual studies of famous legends--the wolf and twins, the founding of Rome by Aeneas--the author reveals that men were increasingly interested in tracing their descent from divinities, in claiming the noble charac-teristics[sic] of their putative ancestors, and in seeking other ways to improve their social standing and political opportunities. This important and controversial book will be of interest to students of Roman society and history, art historians, numismatists, and all those interested in the dynamics between those in power and those not.

📒Propaganda ✍ Henry Conserva
📝Propaganda Book Synopsis : This book was written in response to the wishes of several readers of my book, Propaganda Techniques, who wanted to have me probe somewhat deeper into the subject of propaganda. After some discussions with teachers and students, I used some of their ideas to come up with ten questions.
