"We're telling lies, we daren't tell the public the truth," Lord Rothmere 1917. So begins a fascinating account of propaganda throughout the 20th century. From its conception during World War 1 through to "Democratic Propaganda" in the 1990s, propaganda has been viewed as a way of getting large numbers of people to think and act in a way that benefits the state. Philip M. Taylor takes a critical view of the development of propaganda from something seen as unpleasant but necessary during World War 1 and the aftermath through to its liberal use in newspapers and advertising today. Each area of propaganda; posters and leaflets, TV, radio and film, is covered in depth. However, World Wars 1 and 2 are discussed in greater detail than the Cold War and beyond. A highly entertaining and thought provoking book.
