📒Propaganda ✍ Edward L Bernays
📝Propaganda Book Synopsis : "Bernays' honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies."-Noam Chomsky "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. 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 (1891-1995), pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed "engineering of consent." During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would "Make the World Safe for Democracy." The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon. Bernays applied the techniques he had learned in the CPI and, incorporating some of the ideas of Walter Lipmann, became an outspoken proponent of propaganda as a tool for democratic and corporate manipulation of the population. His 1928 bombshell Propaganda lays out his eerily prescient vision for using propaganda to regiment the collective mind in a variety of areas, including government, politics, art, science and education. To read this book today is to frightfully comprehend what our contemporary institutions of government and business have become in regards to organized manipulation of the masses.
📒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 ✍ Nicholas J. O'Shaughnessy
📝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.

📒Film And Propaganda In America ✍ David Culbert
📝Film and Propaganda in America Book Synopsis : Since early in the twentieth century, it has been a common if not always acceptable practice for governments to exploit film as a means of manipulating public opinion and influencing the behavior of citizens, especially during periods of national emergency. This volume is the newest in a five-part series that documents and examines the use of the medium for propaganda purposes by the U.S. government. Focusing on official and quasi-official productions as well as the uneasy collaboration between Hollywood studios and the armed forces during the postwar period, it brings together an unequalled collection of archival materials, many of which were released solely for the publication of the present work. Volume IV presents oral history interviews and papers from the private archives of filmmakers, writers, and representatives of the military, together with several case studies of military cooperation with Hollywood in the making of war films. It also includes Defense Department memoranda, relevant documents from presidential and media libraries, and excerpts from congressional hearings. These materials provide an insider's view of propaganda efforts connected with the Cold War, the anti-Communist crusade, the Korean War, and Vietnam and offer new information on topics such as film censorship, television violence, and propaganda films about the atomic bomb. Materials are given chronologically, covering the period 1945-1980. Citations at the head of each document list the name of the author and recipient, the date sent, and the collection from which the material is taken. Documents are indexed by film title, name, and subject. Designed as a source of readings as well as a research tool, this volume will be of particular relevance for the study of filmmaking, propaganda, the Cold War, and U.S. information policy in the postwar period.
📒The Oxford Handbook Of Propaganda Studies ✍ Jonathan Auerbach
📝The Oxford Handbook of Propaganda Studies Book Synopsis : Derived from the word "to propagate," the idea and practice of propaganda concerns nothing less than the ways in which human beings communicate, particularly with respect to the creation and widespread dissemination of attitudes, images, and beliefs. Much larger than its pejorative connotations suggest, propaganda can more neutrally be understood as a central means of organizing and shaping thought and perception, a practice that has been a pervasive feature of the twentieth century and that touches on many fields. It has been seen as both a positive and negative force, although abuses under the Third Reich and during the Cold War have caused the term to stand in, most recently, as a synonym for untruth and brazen manipulation. Propaganda analysis of the 1950s to 1989 too often took the form of empirical studies about the efficacy of specific methods, with larger questions about the purposes and patterns of mass persuasion remaining unanswered. In the present moment where globalization and transnationality are arguably as important as older nation forms, when media enjoy near ubiquity throughout the globe, when various fundamentalisms are ascendant, and when debates rage about neoliberalism, it is urgent that we have an up-to-date resource that considers propaganda as a force of culture writ large. The handbook will include twenty-two essays by leading scholars from a variety of disciplines, divided into three sections. In addition to dealing with the thorny question of definition, the handbook will take up an expansive set of assumptions and a full range of approaches that move propaganda beyond political campaigns and warfare to examine a wide array of cultural contexts and practices.

📒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. This gave me the title of this book, Propaganda: A Question and Answer Approach, Having developed a list of question I went about the task of trying to answer them as best as I could. My hope is that the book will be useful to teachers, students, persuasive writers and advertisers as well as general readers.
📒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 ✍ Robert Jackall

Wright Mills, Walter Lippmann, and Hans Speier here explore the social and institutional groundwork of modern propaganda. The book then examines the axial age of propaganda, from the Great War through the Cold War, focusing on key propaganda organizations, such as the Committee on Public Information, the Nazi propaganda machine, and the group of Hollywood directors that produced propaganda films for the armed services during the Second World War. This section also details the wizardry of the master Nazi propagandist, Joseph Goebbels. Finally, the volume examines the ubiquity of propaganda in contemporary society, focusing on bureaucratic propaganda, advertising, public relations, and politics and language.
