Despite major tensions,Britains wartime consensus generally held up under the exi- gencies of war.One explanation for this was the skillful use by the government of propa- ganda and censorship.After the war,how- er,a deep mistrust developed on the part of ordinary citizens,who realized that condi- tions at the front had been deliberately ob- scured by patriotic slogans and atrocity propagandaconsisting of obscene stereo- types of the enemy and their dastardly deeds. The populace also felt cheated that its sacri- ces had not resulted in the promised homes and a land t for heroes.Propaganda was as- sociated with lies and falsehood.Even politi- cians were sensitive to these criticisms;as a esult,the Ministry of Information was im- mediately disbanded.The British govern- ment regarded propaganda as politically dan- gerous and even morally unacceptable in (emphapsis added).The Nazis,on the other hand,regarded propaganda not merely as an instrument for reaching the party elite but as a means of persuading and indoctrinating all Germans. If the two world wars demonstrated the power of propaganda,the post-1945 period witnessed the widespread utilization of the lessons drawn from the wartime experience within the overall context of the communi- cations revolution.Political scientists and so- ciologists theorized about the nature of man limited and subordinate one.More often propaganda is concerned with sharpening and focusing existing trends and beliefs.A second basic misconception is the belief that propaganda consists only of lies and false- hood.In fact,it operates on several levels of truthfrom the outright lie to the half-truth to the truth taken out of context.(Officials in the British Ministry of Information during orld War II referred to this as the whole truth,nothing but the truthand as near as possible the truth!) Many writers on the subject see propaganda as essentially appeas- ing the irrational instincts of manand this is true to a certain extentbut because our ttitudes and behavior are also the product of rational decisions,propaganda must appeal to the rational elements in human nature as ell.The preoccupation with the former ig- occasion of the Dunkirkand Falkland spirit;it has been asked to consider who governs Britain;it has been assured that the rate of ination can be reduced at a stroke; and it has been guaranteed that taxes will not be raised under this governmentand that the BBC and CNN to continue to broadcast from Belgrade,he hoped to fragment West- ern opinion with nightly stories of innocent civilians killed by NATO air strikes.Since the most effective propaganda is that which can be veried,NATO was placed on the defen- sive in the propaganda war by having to con- rm the accuracy of Serbian claims.Although NATOs military strategy was ultimately vin- dicated,the Balkan wars of the 1990s rein- forced the centrality of propaganda to war.

David Culbert Elections (United States);Friedan, appearance of advertisementslarge print, pictures,and even some colorreected a substantial shift in intention:the main pur- pose of advertising was now to persuade the purchaser to buy goods and services rather than simply to provide information. In the 1880s brand names were rst used as a means of distinguishing products that more or less identical.Brand-name ad- tising tried to persuade the public to asso- ciate a particular brand with quality and other desirable attributes.Slogans and catch- phrases became ubiquitous.Perhaps the most amous early example of an advertising slo- gan that created a popular awareness of a product was Good Morning! Have you used earsSoap?The slogan became part of eryday language in Britain and served to number of patriotic propaganda campaigns, the most famous being the Freedom Train exhibition,which traveled throughout the sub-Saharan Africa during the Renaissance.

Later in the century such leaders included the great African American intellectual E.B.Du Bois (18681963),who em- braced Pan-Africanism late in life,following his disillusionment with the prospects for re- form in the United States.Other inuential anticolonial writers included Frantz Fanon Africa played a role in events leading up to World War II.When Benito Mussolini (18831945) attempted to conquer Ab- and secessionist violence ared,with Congo and Nigeria suffering acutely. By the late 1960s many of the newly inde- pendent countries had slipped into military one-party dictatorships,which leaned even more heavily on the cult of personality and Africa9 control of the media.The most notorious ex- amples of African dictatorship included Idi Amin (1925) in Uganda and Emperor Bokassa (19211996) in the Central African Republic.The dictators presented themselves as clients of the world powers.In Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) oseph Mobutu (19301997) worked closely Beginning in 1989 the government of De Klerk (1936) accepted the in- vitable and embraced reform.Nelson Man- dela,released from jail in 1990,became pres- ident following multiracial elections in 1994; he did much to foster what he called the rainbow nation.Thabo Mbeki,who suc- ceeded him in 1999,proved less adept.Man- delas South Africa demonstrated consider- able skill in addressing the heritage of apartheid through the operation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (1996 1998),chaired by Tutu,which defused oppo- sition propaganda by revealing the atrocities committed under apartheid without resort- ing to reprisals or divisive trials. In the 1980s and 1990s international bod- ies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) sought to use modern mass commu- nications in Africa to prevent the spread of AIDS,among other causes;foreign-based broadcasters such as the Voice of America and the BBC have also played a part in AIDS edu- cation.Western media coverage of African ents has tended to focus on disasters rather than daily occurrences and more recent suc- cess stories such as that of Eritrea,thereby estern nations.

Egypts initial involvement with Arab pol- itics was motivated by the need to guarantee support for other Arab states,particularly Syria and Palestine,but by 1937 Egyptian delegates at a Pan-Arab conference in Syria had expressed serious concern over the cre- tion of an Israeli state,affirming that it ould have constituted a great threat both to Egypt and its neighboring countries.The next year Egypts primary position in the Middle East was conrmed when 2,500 peo- ple came to Cairo for the World Inter-Par- liamentary Congress of Arab and Muslim Countries for the Defense of Palestine.Addi- tionally,in 1944 Egypt established the League of Sovereign States,which remained in Cairo until the Camp David peace accord with Israel in 1979 and Egypts expulsion from the league. By 1954 Nasser had undisputed control of Egypt and had gained considerable interna- tional prestige as the father of Arab national- ism.In his Philosophy of the Revolution admitted that the notion of a unied Arab consciousness developed as a result of the alestinian dilemma and imperialism.Oppo- sition to the Baghdad Pact of 1955,the Suez Crisis of 1956,and the nationalization of the Suez Canal also motivated the Egyptian Nasser aided other friendly Arab countries in developing their own broadcasting poten- tial through professional courses and the es- tablishment of the Institute for Radio Train- ing(1957),which was later done for television.Starting in 1953,the Egyptian Radio Corporation also sent trained techni- cians to Saudi Arabia,Libya,Kuwait,and and continued guerrilla warfare,thereby hoping to gain Western attention.Extremist oups within the Palestinian movement con- centrated on international terrorism as a form of propaganda that would nally propel the Palestinian cause into the spotlight;these oups included the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine,founded by George Habash (1925) and the Popular Democra- tic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, founded by Nayef Hawatmeh (1937). Some of the best-known terrorist attacks in- cluded the kidnapping and death of eleven Is- objective since the rst terrorist acts of the early 1970s.However,this part of the accord as never implemented.Israel was unwilling to renounce the conquered lands of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.The failure to create a Palestinian homeland had far-reaching con- sequences.Because of its intrinsic weakness based on its history,geographic location,and population demographics,Lebanon became and distribute news from the foreign press.

BIS (British Information Services) This British overseas information agency, entually housed within the Foreign Office, is best known for its campaigns in the United States.BIS was founded in 1941 as part of a consolidation of the various British informa- tion offices working in the United States to combat American neutrality.The word ser- vicewas borrowed from the existing British Press Service (BPS),which was founded in New York the previous year.The word ser- vicehad been selected by British ambassador Lord Lothian (18821940) as an alternative to the terms propaganda(taboo since orld War I) and relations,which Lothian felt had been debased by both commerce and .S.government overuse.

The ability of a small country like Bosnia to in- uence Western opinion and the consequent demonizing of the Serbs were also matters of concern to some observers.International re- porting of the crisis and war nevertheless con- rmed that national contexts and agendas fre- quently predominated over facts. The resolution of the conict came in the summer of 1995 when U.S.aircraft (acting under the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza- tion,or NATO) carried out attacks against Bosnian Serb forces.The Bosnian Serb re- sponse was to take UN ground troops hostagea vivid propaganda image broadcast around the worldand to overrun some of the Bosnian safe areas,including Srebenica.In the autumn of 1995 American-trained Croat forces,supported by U.S.bombing raids as part of Operation Deliberate Force,inicted a decisive defeat against the Bosnian Serbs. This resulted in a compromise peace in No- ember,known as the Dayton Accords,and the deployment of IFOR (consisting of Amer- ican,British,and French troops) to police a cease-re agreement according to which Bosnia remained essentially intact.NATO commentators pointed out that IFOR com- bined a good information organization with considerable armed force and the mandate to use itall of which UNPROFOR lacked. This appeared to support the common West- ern military position that propaganda di- ected at a potential enemy was only effective when backed by force or the threat of force. The lasting effect of the war in propaganda terms was to establish a frame of reference for most Westerners in which the Serbs were osovo Crisis and War Badsey,Stephen,ed. International Security.

Manipulation of the social environment and oup dynamics was accompanied by rote ideological instruction,which included lec- tures on Marxist and Maoist precepts and the insistence that prisoners engage in self-criti- cism,rst by repeatedly rewriting their life stories with a new class consciousness and then by publicly recanting their old alle- iances.Under such coercive conditions, high levels of collaboration were only to be expected.Whereas those who clung to brain- ashing as an explanation imagined that the Chinese had successfully instilled Communist beliefs in the prisoners,behaviorists stressed that the vast majority of POWs merely went alongwith their captors to the extent neces- sary to survive camp life,without shifting their convictions toward Communism.In act,most American prisoners resisted ideo- logical instruction;this was so apparent to their captors that the Chinese abandoned for- mal trainingmonths before the end of the As for the twenty-one prisoners who re- fused repatriationseemingly the epitome of the brainwashed POWmost were less conrmed Communists than men who,hav- ing engaged in more serious acts of collabo- ration,feared being court-martialed upon same.Instead of fading,the Parliament devel- oped procedurally into an ever more effec- tive institution for limiting royal power and for developing consensus among what could increasingly be called the political class.En- gland emerged from the Middle Ages as a parliamentary monarchy.This divergence from the systems of government of most of the Continent was made nal and irreversible in the seventeenth century by Parliaments call for the execution of Charles I (16001649) and the deposition of James II (16331701),the last two English kings who sought to go the Continental way. arliamentary monarchy led to a charac- practical people interested in politics,with the objective of coming up with a workable consensus for the time being.The characteris- tic elements of British political oratorythe throwaway line,self-deprecation,under- statement,the use of a chairperson to whom the speaker defers,concentration on practical Britain.The employment of professional per- suaders to assist office seekers also developed early.Governments and politiciansin or out of office either as individuals or collective oups,such as political partieshave em- ployed propagandists since the reign of Eliza- unique institutional framework for it,to act as the integrator for democracy,in the ords of John Reith (18891971),the rst director general of the BBC.The application to lm of the concepts and rules for control- ling the theater through the creation of the British Board of Film Censorship proved less effective in the end.Political messages re- layed through British lms were indeed effec- tively controlled;foreign lms with strongly contrarian messages were kept off the public screens or allowed to appear only with the strongest of those messages removed or toned down.British lm production was also ept alive through various forms of nancial support in the face of the overwhelming strength of Hollywood.In terms of negative propaganda,the exclusion of messages liable to undermine fundamental elements of the dominant ideology has made British cinema screens among the most tightly controlled in Europe.However,the proportion of British feature lms to American could not be main- tained at a sufficiently high ratio to achieve the positive propaganda potential that British politicians also saw in lm.The application to the medium of lm of the three core tech- niques of the British approach to political persuasion (ultimately reinforced by state funding) did produce the documentary genre,which represents the principal British contribution to the art of the moving image and propaganda. It was no accident that Britain emerged from the world wars as a pioneer of external propaganda,psychological warfare,and cul- tural diplomacy.Britain regarded persuasion as the central factor in the working of the state for three hundred years and thus had a pool of expertise to draw on when needed.

Dickinson has argued that while the exploitation of the power of the press and the skilful dissemination of propaganda were copied from earlier campaigns against the Court,the country opposition sought only electoral endorsement of its policies, whereas the radicals wanted the people, en those without the vote,to exert a pow- erful inuence over Parliament.The same Britons:Forging the Nation,17071837.

Bulgaria57 The high period of Canadian propaganda,be- inning with World War II and ending with the October Crisis in 1970,is a narrative of whiteness.As with Robert Rauschenbergs all-white paintings of the early 1950s,one might say that the only image was the shadow cast by the spectator.Despite its light shadings,Canadian propaganda was no less notable.Indeed,if propagandas efficacy is often inversely proportional to its stri- orld War I had a profound impact on the development of Canadian propaganda and public attitudes toward government informa- tion generally.Domestic propaganda sought to neutralize the true horrors of the western front in order to maintain public support for the war.Not surprisingly,recruitment posters and press accounts emphasized cama- raderie and glory rather than casualties and battleeld conditions.Mounting recruitment difficulties eventually culminated in a full- scale conscription crisis that opened a wide for an imaginary American journalist whom he planned to make the source of his photo- raphs from the front.Although his sub- terfuge was later exposed,the name stuck and he changed his own name accordingly.

After guring in the movement against slavery (which was abolished in the British Empire in 1833),the region was the scene of anticolonial activities,especially in the Span- ish Caribbean.Among the leaders was Jos writer Graham Greene (19041991).When apa Doc died in 1971,rule passed to Baby Decision Making.

Soon after seizing power,Castro began a program of agricultural reform that brought him into direct conßict with U.S.corporate plantation owners.Castro also used anti- Latin America,and his chairmanship (since 1979) of the Non-Aligned Movement.Cas- tros activities remained of major concern to the United States and served as a justication for U.S.counterpropaganda and military in- tervention in the region (as it had in the Do- minican Republic in 1965).In 1983 the United States launched a major propaganda initiative against Castro in the form of a radio station staffed by Cuban exiles (administered USIA).It challenged Castros claim to the heritage of the Cuban struggle for independ- ence by adopting the name Radio Mart.A television equivalent followed in 1990,al- though the effect of both was limited by jam- ming.In the 1990s issues in the propaganda S. w Germany the justication for tight censorship Burgfrieden truce) and the fear that newspapers might publish sensitive military information.There as little to support this fear,for the only wire service in Germany was the officialWolff elegraph Bureau (WTB),which,at the out- break of war,became the German newspa- pers sole source of official war news,with all sensitive material rst being cleared by the German Foreign Office.

Central Intelligence Agency Latin America Propaganda is central to the operation of the Chinese system of government.Aspects of propagandain particular the formalization of imagery and languagecan be traced back to the earliest period of Chinese history,but propaganda has been most effective in the most notable was the reformer Liang Qichao Shibao, published from 1904 to 1939,served as a forum for debates on con- stitutional reform in China,which inßuenced the newly emerging urban middle class,par- ticularly in major cities such as Shanghai. Much of the vocabulary of modernity was also popularized through publications by Liang,paving the way for the introduction of ideological thought (national- lic) as a means of instilling wider respect for the Nationalist nation-building project.The other major propaganda exercise under Chi- ang was the anti-Communist campaign.After Chiang turned against the Chinese Commu- nists,who had been part of a united front with the Nationalists until 1927,the official press and media were encouraged to portray the small areas under Communist control in the 1930s as hotbeds of lawlessness and even sexual degeneracy (property in common, wives in commonwas a common gloss on the Communists at the time) in order to in- still fear in the population at large.Commu- nists were almost always referred to in offi- cial sources as bandits.This language was wiftly toned down after 1937,when a sec- ond united front was established against the apanese. The Japanese invasion of Chinese terri- tory,starting with the occupation of the northeast (Manchuria) in 1931,created a new language and imagery of resistance, which became increasingly powerful throughout the 1930s and the war years. Manchurian exiles from the Japanese occupa- tion used their positions on well-known peri- odicals such as eekly)which may have reached 1.5 mil- lion readersto write about atrocities in oc- cupied Manchuria,helping to stimulate an urban protest movement against Chiang Kai- sheks policy of appeasement of the Japanese. The imagery of resistance permeated popular ction of the period as well;in one 1933 best-seller all the characters joined the anti- apanese resistance.In Manchuria itself, meanwhile,Japanese-sponsored propaganda exercisessuch as new schoolbooks and the Concordia Association,a pressure group cre- ted to stimulate Sino-Japanese cooperation in the occupied zonecountered the argu- ments of anti-Japanese nationalism. During the Sino-Japanese War,writers and artists used their powers graphically to portray the nature of the Japanese invasion. Newspaper reporters such as Fan Changjiang (19091970) and Lu Yi (1911) reported from the front lines for the rst time in his- tory.Their reports,an important element in the stimulation of nationalist sentiment in China,used a combination of realistic report- ing and standardized imagery to portray aliant Chinese ghters combating vicious apanese invaders.Cartoonists also con- tributed to this imagery;the stark images of eng Zikai (18981975) remain among the best-known cartoons from the war period. Mao Zedong was the guiding spirit behind past.A partial exception was the campaign to inspire patriotism following the 1989 stu- dent-worker protests in Chinese cities,which esulted in the killings of protestors in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.In the 1990s propaganda took on new tasks,in particular the creation of a brand of nationalism based on traditional Chinese culture and on recent history not directly related to the Commu- nist Party,such as the war against Japan.One of the goals behind the nationalist campaign as to encourage reunication with Taiwan, which remains one of the last unfullled goals of the Communist Party.While propa- ganda remains a constant in Chinese everyday life thanks to the powerful control the state continues to exercise over the media,pub- lishing,and education,censorship has less- ened.The appearance of new media,such as ylor,Philip M.

Churchill,Winston (18741965) British Conservative politician and prime minister from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955,Winston Churchill holds an anomalous position in the history of propa- ganda.Although in some ways he was the consummate propagandist,Churchill dis- missed the importance of propaganda in modern war and politics,preferring deeds. Churchill (18491895),Winston seemed ted for politics from an early age.After a se- ies of adventures during war service as a cor- espondent in South Africa,he entered Parlia- ment in 1900.He left the Conservative Party to join the Liberals and quickly rose to promi- nence.During World War I he was First Lord of the Admiralty.During this period he learned the trick of holding back bad news until he had a piece of good news to counter- act it.This approach to news management served him well during World War II. During the General Strike of 1926 it was Churchill (then chancellor of the Exchequer) who directed government propaganda.He took over the BBC to give the government a monopoly on broadcast news and edited a special newspaper called British poster from 1940 featuring wartime prime minister and skilled propagandist Winston Churchill (Hulton-Deutsch without victory there can be no survival.

Civil Defense ear of technological and military develop- ments have prompted civil and emergency planning boards to use propaganda to edu- cate the public.Civil defense propaganda was a particularly signicant part of the British governments output during World War II, also guring in Cold War propaganda on both sides of the Atlantic.Civil defense prop- aganda has been used to draw populations closer to their government by emphasizing shared risks and responsibilities. In World War I German air raids over London resulted in mass panic,stampedes for shelter,and even assaults on uniformed Royal Air Corps officers for failing to prevent the bombing.The impact was sufficient in 1924 for the British government to create a subcommittee of the Committee of Imperial Defense to look into the question of Air Raid Precautions (ARP).The newsreel footage of the blitzkrieg of Spanish towns in the 1930s during the Spanish Civil War revealed the vulnerability of European cities to such at- tacks.Based on the pessimistic predictions of the Ministry of Health and the Air Staff,a plan was developed in the 1930s to ensure that lines of communication and supply chan- nels remained open,as well as to give the government the authority to control the civilian population by force if,as was pre- dicted,mass panic should ensue. Shortly after Hitlers invasion of Austria in what precautions could be taken in the aimed their propaganda at both black and lib- eral white communities.This dual strategy had two aims:encouraging blacks to undertake di- ect action and gaining white sympathy, which,in turn,would exert pressure for polit- ical reform.The power of speech was the A poster showing Black Panther leaders Bobby Seale and Huey P.Newton,the latter heavily armed in a theatrical touch.(Library of Congress) o years later images of peaceful protesters being brutally clubbed by white police ap- peared as headline news on Bloody Sunday. providing a time span,it signied that fu- ture issues would follow.Second,it was re- porting current domestic news.Previously the printing of domestic news in England had been strictly prohibited.There was a wide- spread belief among government officials that too much informationa liberty of dis- coursewould demystify and undermine its authority. Newsbooks had existed much earlier in England,but they only printed news pertain- ing to continental Europe.However,with the Scottish and Irish rebellions (1639 and 1641, espectively) and the subsequent political turmoil,the mechanisms of governmental censorship broke down.Printing was closely controlled by the Court of High Commis- sion,the Star Chamber,and the Stationers Company in conjunction with the king and the archbishop of Canterbury.But in 1640 the Long Parliament impeached Archbishop illiam Laud (15731645) and imprisoned him in the Tower of London in 1641.Later that same year the Long Parliament abolished the Star Chamber and the Court of High Commission and rescinded the privileges of the Stationers Company.The printers of London took advantage of the uncertain po- litical situation to print and sell as much as they dared.The result was an explosion of quickly composed and cheaply printed news- still continued.Additional decrees to con- trol printing were to follow in 1647 and 1649,which imposed a forty-shilling fine on anyone carrying or mailing seditious books pictures,and most lm companies sent crews to the Iberian peninsula.During the rst eks of the conict the government was too usy preparing counterattacks to care about propaganda.The only organization able to lm and distribute movies was the Anarchist ederation,which emphasized popular partic- ipation and voluntary enlistment of the rather than a justication for aid to the Span- ish republic.In the longer term the Spanish conict resulted in previously unknown forms of ideological communication,the rad- Hope,Arkansas,and developed his interper- sonal skills at an early age.After graduating Official presidential portrait of Bill Clinton (Library of Congress) sixteenth centuryparticularly the large silver coin,the thalerwith enough space to permit the depiction of successful events.

Another serious concern for Western pro- pagandists was the development of a strong neutralist trend in the Middle East,which posed more of a danger to Western than So- essential compatibility of Western and Is- lamic ideals and values.Communism was consistently denounced as a godless creed and the persecution of Muslim minorities University of Edinburgh Press,1998;Engels, Friedrich,and Karl Marx.

Florence Nightingale (18201910) also used the press to exaggerate her own role in med- ical reform at Scutari.At the prompting of Prince Albert (18191861),the British gov- ernment responded by sending court photog- rapher Roger Fenton (18191868) to the Crimea in 1855 as the worlds rst accredited ar photographer. Russells account of the charge of the British light cavalry brigade at the Battle of Balaclava in 1854 inspired Alfred,Lord Ten- yson (18091892) to write his poem Charge of the Light Brigade. While appalled at the losses in the charge,Tennyson,like Rus- sell,stressed the heroism and sense of duty of the men.His poem became a cornerstone of Caribbean Cultural Propaganda Cultural propaganda is a long-term process One of the most interesting and bold ex- periments in cultural propaganda was the pol- icy of reeducationadopted by the Allies in different forms after the war.It represented a political experiment unique in modern his- tory.The rationale behind Britains policy of eeducation in the period 19451955 was to hange the political behavior and social out- look of the German people through a funda- mental restructuring of the various media.In practice this control extended beyond the press,radio,and lm to include the entire ed- David,Jacques-Louis (17481825) A French neoclassical painter active during the French Revolution,who later became court painter to Napoleon,David was born in Paris and trained in Italy.He gained fame based on a series of historical paintingsin- The Oath of the Horatii minor government office in 1695 and adopt- ing the name Defoe.

Recent campaigns have rapidly adopted a new style of electoral politics that can be haracterized by at least ve main features: 1.Telepolitics:Vigorous propaganda campaigns conducted through the broadcast media,particularly television,including extensive conventions become projects for professional producers,who freely mix entertainment and political speeches. 5.ÒPollsiÞcationÓ:The political weakness that Þrst opened campaign headquarters to outside experts also spurs candidates to commission polls to analyze every move they make. oliticians and the media are trapped in a kind of vicious circle that beneÞts the poll industry:the more polls,the more Þndings;the more Þndings,the more differences among them;the more differences,the greater the uncertainty;and so on. The new electoral propaganda style is likely to shape the quality of the political leadership,for it promotes a process of nega- tive selection that encourages mediocre can- didates possessing manipulative skills but lacking vision and leadership qualities.The mediocrity that is taking control of democ- racyÑthe demediocracy Ñis perhaps more bearable in an established Western democ- racy but may prove disastrous for a younger one that still faces problems of survival.

Exhibitions and Worlds Fairs Ever since the huge success of the 1851 Great Exhibition in London,the idea of ex- hibitions and worlds fairs to promote trade, industry,art,and knowledge has become an industry in itself.In 1928 an international convention established the Bureau of Inter- national Expositions to organize and control exhibitions and fairs.Exhibitions and worlds irs have always been about far more than the simple promotion of knowledge and trade.They have been used to celebrate his- torical events,which usually meant that the host country took the opportunity to stress its national culture and achievements.They have also been used to underscore a nations superiority over its rivals,thereby,strictly speaking,violating the original spirit behind The inspiration for the Great Exhibition as Prince Albert (18191861).The prince consort was very much a man of his time,and his idea for a celebration of the industry of ÒdegenerateÓIndians.A similar spirit per- aded the famous 1904 Louisiana Purchase International Exposition,held in St.Louis, where there were numerous Òanthropological exhibits.Ó(The St.Louis Fair committee also brought the Olympics to the city.)

This strategy illustrates Goebbelss desire to mix entertainment with propaganda.He encouraged the production of feature lms that reected the ambience of National So- cialism instead of loudly proclaiming its ide- ology.The results of such a were a monopolistic system of control and organiza- tion that stressed prots,increased audience ttendance,and resulted in an extremely high standard of technical prociency.In the nal analysis,however,it contributed little stylisti- cally to the history of the cinema.

Film (Newsreels) Newsreels consisted of a diverse selection of news stories contained on a single reel of lm.They were generally shown in movie theaters either weekly or semiweekly be- tween 1908 and the late 1970s.Newsreels silent until the late 1920s,with any message beyond purely pictorial information being relayed through titles.With the arrival of sound in the late 1920s,they assumed their most familiar form,consisting of back- ound music and an authoritative,unseen commentator.In the era before television, they were a powerful medium for the com- unication (and suppression) of news in moving images,and their impact on millions of viewers was considerable. News stories had been a staple of moving pictures since their inception in the mid- the newsreels were most often content to be purveyors of moving pictures of what had al- eady been read as news in other media. Their most insidious effect was support of the status quo.Commentators critical of the newsreels in the 1930s generally accused them of a right-wing bias,and only Para- mount Newsin the United States and Britain did not shy away from controversy and a less supine attitude toward prevailing orthodoxies.The regular excuse of the newsreels was that they were an entertain- ment medium.There was pressure by ex- hibitors,who wanted nothing controversial added to the overall movie package;given the small portion of that program occupied the newsreels,they were in no position to protest.

By World War I he had become a popular magazine illustrator,working for such publi- cations as Harpers Weekly and had gained a reputation as a man-about- town.His personal life was colorful and often scandalous.He also illustrated books of comic poems and produced satirical portraits of the famous faces of his day.With the entry of the United States into World War I in 1917,Flagg accepted work from the gover- nor of New York and joined the Division of Pictorial Publicity,a New Yorkbased volun- tary group of artists assembled by illustrator Charles Dana Gibson (18671944) to create posters for the federal government.Flagg crown.Even Marguerite of Navarre (1492 1549),the kings independent-minded sister, as attacked for daring to question clerical dogma.A satirical play staged at the College de Navarre depicted her as preaching heresy and tormenting all those who would not heed her.Francis and his heirs failed to re- solve the religious conict,and the war of ordsoften became one of bloody mayhem as well. The 1560s,1570s,and 1580s were charac- terized by Catholic-Protestant civil war,in- cluding assassinations and massacres.Both sides appealed to the crowd through propa- ganda.Franois Hotmans (15241590) Francogallia argued that France had been en- slaved by popery,while Louis Dorlanss Advertisement of the English Catholics to the French Catholics arms to the Catholic League.In 1589 Henry IV (15531610) ascended the throne as a Protestant.His struggle with the league, which controlled Paris and a number of other cities,went on for years,propaganda playing a central role on both sides.Paris printers ell paid to produce material that ex- tolled Catholicism while excoriating Protes- tantism and King Henry.An example was an Since only members of the Third Estate were elected,the opposition began circulating guides for writing cahiers de dolances The Third Republics propaganda sought to minimize the defeat of 1871,romanticize the French empire,and to call for la revanche.

The World politics was not a feature of the Germanic form of kingship,which was a limited monarchy.Propaganda had the dual role of proclaiming the great power of the emperor and obtaining allegiance to the feudal system the local level. From the mid-fourteenth to the mid-sev- litical gures (although rarely the Emperor). Propaganda and persuasion continued to be rather than developing a dialogue or consen- sus.The bureaucratization and militarization of public life and an imperialist foreign policy, which stirred peoples emotions at home, bound nationalism and militarism with the monarchist authoritarian state. ith Bismarcks resignation in 1890, Kaiser Wilhelm II (18591941) presented (peoples Kaiser); idealized portraits of a statuesque Wilhelm obscured his insecurity and complex person- ality,masking his stunted body and withered arm from the public.The new policy of im- perialism adopted by Wilhelm II represented a nal attempt to overcome internal divisions through foreign policy successes.The kaisers motto remained: as a task;to be- of the new Propaganda Ministry was to coor- dinate the political will of the nation with the aims of the Nazi state.To this end he quickly The official Nazi Party membership lapel pin:National- Sozialistische-D.A.P (National Socialist German Workers' ty).(Courtesy of David Culbert) GDR received Western television and radio, and in the 1960s the authorities waged an un- successful campaign to counter West Ger- man broadcasts. In the FRG the Allied occupation laid the basis for the resurrection of a strong press, freed from the threat of political oppression and abuse.It also had the effect of suppressing all other forms of discourse and concentrating the media in the hands of such giants as Axel Springer (19121985),who personied press power in the FDR.He was granted a license to launch a new radio-program magazine, (Listen),in 1946.He founded the Hamburger Abendblatt two years later,and in June 1952 Bild Zeitung. lowing year he bought Die Welt from the British,who had established it as the mouth- piece of their military government in Ger- many.Springer also established a number of magazines and moved into commercial broad- casting.The right-wing political stance that the Springer media empire adopted beginning in the late 1950s led to an ongoing feud with the countrys intelligentsia.In West Germany the Allies were concerned that broadcasting should be decentralized.In 1954 the Arbeitsgemein- schaft der ffentlich-rechtlichen Rund- funkanstalten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland (ARD;Working Group of the Public Broad- casting Corporations of the Federal Republic of Germany) was formed;consisting of eleven ional public broadcasting organizations,its mandate was to create national radio and tele- vision programs while drawing on the re- sources of regional stations.When the FRG gained full sovereignty in 1955,the federal states were granted full autonomy in broad- casting.The two foreign-language radio or- ganizations operating under federal law are Deutsche Welle (DW;Voice of Germany;lit- erally,German [Air] Wave) and Deutschland- funk (DL;Radio Germany).Both stations en- oseph Goebbels,German minister of propaganda,attends a demonstration in 1934.(Illustrated London News Picture Library) with the political situation,with a prepon- derance of pure propaganda in the rst years of the war.Nevertheless he consistently aimed to keep the people content,which gave his approach to propaganda an undeni- able modern touch.An agitator against bol- shevism,democracy,and liberalism and a preacher of hate,Goebbels did not merely threaten people or make them obey his mes- sage;he also calculated the effects of enter- tainment sanitized of any forbidden or sub- sive qualities.His loyalty to Hitler was nally rewarded when the dictator declared him his successor as chancellor (with Admiral )testament.A few hours after Hitler commit- ted suicide,Goebbels and his wife poisoned their six children before following the exam- ple of their leader. propaganda.British propaganda therefore equired delicate handling.Wellington House pared the population of Afghanistan for a planned U.S.air and land war by dropping food containers and radios that could only pick up one signal.The U.S.-run radio sta- tion,which did not formally identify itself, simply referred to itself as Afghan FM.Sand- in Greece include regulations outlawing at- tacks against the church and a law forbidding unwarranted publicity for terrorists.Ter- ist-group operations in Greece include the small left-wing November 17th move- ment,whose propaganda by actionin- cluded the assassination of a British military ttach in 2000.In the 1990s the Macedonia 1988;Wiener,Malcolm H.ÒPicasso and the Cuban Missile Crisis.Ó Gulf War (1991) This war against Iraq for the liberation of million.Hill and Knowltons tactics in- cluded a staple of propaganda:the atrocity story.On 10 October 1990 a distraught aiti teenager identified only as Nayirah told a hearing of the U.S.Congressional Caucus on Human Rights that invading Iraqi soldiers had stolen incubators from a mater- nity hospital in Kuwait and had left babies to die on the floor.The report subsequently became a fixture in Western human rights stories and was included in President Bushs denunciations of Saddam.Nayirah had not witnessed the events but was simply the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States.Once the war had begun,in- novations in American propaganda included the extensive use of images of the environ- mental damage allegedly caused by Sad- dams tacticssuch as his use of crude oil as an anti-invasion measurein Kuwait;in an environmentally sensitive era,television pictures of oil-soaked cormorants and hemical fires in Kuwait had a marked im- pact on European (particularly German) opinion.Analysis after the campaign re- ealed that the pictures of seabirds,while genuine,predated the particular crime they used to illustrate. Iraqi propaganda began with Saddam Hus- seins efforts to intimidate his enemieswho massing in Operation Desert Shield pledging the mother of all battles.Radio Baghdad broadcasts by a female announcer tions on how to surrender,and sixty thou- sand Iraqi troops did so,greatly accelerating the progress of the Western campaign.The experience boosted U.S.condence in the power of psychological warfare. The restrictions of the UN resolution and the fragility of the coalition meant that the Bush administration had to limit its campaign in Iraq.The war ended with the liberation of ait.The United States also appreciated the value of the clean warimage to bolster domestic and international support.Analysts have noted that the United States ended the ar at precisely the moment that the world saw the effect of its bombs on the Iraqi armys acuation route,the Basra Road,which was subsequently dubbed the Highway of Death. Saddam remained in office and proceeded to consolidate his dictatorship by attacking the urdish opposition in the north.The coali- tion had held for the duration of the conict, ut many in the Islamic world were not con- vinced of the wider benevolence of American involvement in the region.The spectacle of American troops operating from Saudi Ara- bia,a land holy to Muslims,enraged a number of religious extremists,including Osama bin Laden (1957),whose actions would pre- cipitate the next major Western intervention in the region ten years later.The media as- pects of the war represented a high point of the postCold War Western domination of the global media.In subsequent campaigns the United States had to contend with alter- raduate student in California dented the Blair administrations reputation for skillful spin. Media reporting of the war and the wars psychological dimension are of particular concern to the student of propaganda.In both areas,the Gulf War of 2003 can claim a number of rsts.Clearly this was a war of killed by American friendly re,covered the invasion from inside Baghdad. The print media did a good job of covering the war,even if at some distance from fast- moving events.Technology served the cause of print graphics.Aerial topography,brilliant raphic design,and the use of color allowed New York Times to run daily full-page maps showing precisely what was happening,even .S.and British forces have intensied the use of psychological operations,known as psy-ops.The United States engaged in a comprehensive airwaves campaign to soften its enemy and soothe its population at home. Spearheading the electronic propaganda campaign were converted C-130 cargo planes transmitting a mixture of Arabic and stern music,along with announcements to the troops and citizens of Iraq,urging them to lay down their weapons.These planes were the coalitions weapons of mass persuasion.The radio transmissions were The promotion of public health has become a staple subject of propaganda for governmen- tal and nongovernmental organizations around the world.Government-sponsored health campaigns rst appeared during orld War I,although at this early stage they rarely coordinated.Most of the bel- ligerent states worried about the spread of enereal disease and launched campaigns to of the danger of unprotected sex.In orld War II health campaigns gured more prominently in official propaganda.The time emergency meant that citizens had to be physically t in order to ght,work in industry,cope with air raids,and endure hardship caused by food and other shortages. In Britain during World War II adequate food supplies were recognized as a key factor in the maintenance of morale.The British government mobilized a number of min- istries to explain official policy and to stress the importance of good health for the suc- cessful conclusion of the war effort.The Ministry of Food was one of the largest spenders on publicity,issuing a constant ow propaganda,although this was largely in sup- port of its sinister racial and eugenics cam- paigns.In July 1933 the Law for the Preven- tion of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring permitted the compulsory sterilization of people suffering from a number of allegedly hereditary illnesses.Less well known is the orlds most aggressive antitobacco health campaign,launched by the Nazi government in the 1930s.Nazi policies included bans on smoking in public places,increased tobacco taxes,advertising bans,and research into eous mentality of many Americans of the 1890s.When staff artist Frederic Remington helped introduce to a wider audience the pantheon of Zionist heroessuch as Herzl and Max Nordau (18491923)who formed the mainstay of Zionist imagery until the end of World War I.After his death in 1904, Herzls imagery took on epic proportions in both print and visual formats.Various por- traits of him continued to circulate during subsequent Zionist congresses,and his life as presented as the quintessential journey from assimilation to Zionism.

Hungary ustrian Empire Hussein,Saddam (1937Ð) Saddam Hussein was born in 1937 in Tikrit, near Baghdad.In the 1950s he became in- olved in the BaÕath Party,which combined socialism and Iraqi and Arab nationalism in a potent blend.Like European fascists of the early 1920s,its leaders preached that vio- lence could be a creative force.Saddam took part in two unsuccessful coups (1959 and 1964) before playing a key role in the revolu- tion of 1968.During the 1970s he came to dominate the revolutionary government in Iraq,emerging as president in 1979. Propaganda was at the heart of SaddamÕs BaÕath Party regime.He controlled the media and nurtured the sort of personality Iraqi 25-dinar note bearing the likeness of Saddam Hussein.The notes were overprinted for use as occupation currency when Iraq controlled Kuwait after the invasion,August 1991.(Courtesy of David Culbert) Hoping to use Kuwaiti oil revenues to speed his postwar reconstruction,in 1990 he invaded Kuwait.He remained in power long after the victorious Western forces in the Gulf ar of January and February 1991 forced him to leave that country.During this armed con- ict Saddam pursued a number of propaganda strategies.He addressed himself to the people of the Arab world as a truer representative of the peoples aspirations than their ruling elites and sought the approval of the region by launching missile attacks against Israel.In his approach to the West Saddam sought to ex- Scandinavia Ignatius of Loyola,Saint The founder of the Jesuit Order and pioneer of systematic propaganda,Iigo Lopez de Recalde was born in Loyola,northern Spain,to a wealthy family.He began his reli- ious activity in 1522,after a war wound cut short a promising military career.Ig- natius of Loyolas core idea was to apply military discipline and structure to religious enterprise.In 1534 he and his associate Francis Xavier (15061552) founded the disgruntledemployee of the company, launched the rst newspaper,the Bengal printing and composing machines were to- tally outdated and worn out.This made it which chose to be an Islamic country,and India,which sought to remain secularthus edrawing the political map of South Asia. Like the country,the provinces of Punjab and Bengal were divided,leading to bloody riots tion of newsprint and the release of public advertisements.In the absence of adequate democratic and constitutional safeguards to protect their interests,journalists have been compelled either to work under a self-im- posed censorship or to engage in political propaganda that suits the government.Ef- forts are now being made to enhance the scope of media freedom in Pakistan. Newsprint quotas were abolished in 2000 and a customs duty on newsprint was re- duced.In 2001 the government presented a model freedom of information act for wider public debate. Interestingly,in the case of television in India,the involvement of the private sector has become significant since the mid-1990s. Until then the government had maintained total control over this media institution. The party in power has always used tele- vision to influence and alter the terms of political debate.For instance,it has been argued that the soap-opera serialization of Ramayana on national television from anuary 1987 to September 1990 helped the Hindu right propagate and assert its po- litical agenda,which centered on the issue of the reconstruction of the Ram temple in odhya.On the other hand,radio,which as introduced to the subcontinent in 1921 as an experiment and was made into a state monopoly in 1930,remained an important arm of state propaganda machinery until the mid-1990s.Legislation was passed to make both radio and television au- tonomous.In the case of Pakistan,the elec- tronic media is virtually owned by the gov- ernment.This has given rise to the criticism that this segment of media pres- ents an unrealistically positive and sanitized sion of reality.The mutual banning of media broadcasts by Pakistan and India has thirds of its population resides on a handful of these islands,including Java and Bali.The ast majority of Indonesias inhabitants are Muslim.Propaganda has gured centrally in each religions efforts to capture the hearts tures sexual freedom,a subject that found wide interest in American mass-circulation magazines of the 1930s.

This became a major channel of Communist propaganda in the interwar years.The mod- erate European Social Democratic parties re- sponded by reviving the Socialist Interna- tional,which merged with a second alternative grouping (the Vienna Interna- tional of 1921) in 1923.In 1938 the follow- ers of Leon Trotsky (18791940) established the militant Fourth International,which later broke into splinter groups. The Comintern ceased operation in 1943 as Stalin,seeking cooperation with the Allied powers,pulled back from a global socialist Nicholas J.Cull Comintern;Engels,Friedrich;The Internationale;Lenin,Vladimir Ilyich;Marx, Karl;Russia;Stalin,Joseph;Trotsky,Leon Braunthal,Julius.

The Internationale(18711888) The rousing anthem of the international So- cialist movement and one of the best-known propaganda songs since La Marseillaise.The ords appeared as a poem written in June 1871 by the French Communard Eugne Pot- tier (18161887) following the bloody defeat of the Paris Commune.The tune was com- posed in 1888 by a Lille wood-carver named Pierre Degeyter (18481932).The song brother Adophe (18581917) contested its authorship,which gave rise to an eighteen- ear lawsuit that was decided in Pierres The song rapidly became popular in France,which hosted the Second Interna- tional (1889) soon after its composition.In 1910 the International Socialist Congress in anthem.In January 1913 Lenin (18701924) wrote an admiring article in Pravda the twenty-fth anniversary of Pottiers death,calling him one of the greatest propa- gandists in song.From 1917 to 1943 it into frequently visited websites.Some inter- national radio stations,including the Voice of Campaign poster featuring the late Ayatollah Khomeini and Ali Khamenei.(BAHAR/IMAX/CORBIS SYGMA) too pro-German for Allied tastes,and when British and Russian forces occupied Iran he abdicated in favor of his son,Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlavi (19181980). The career of the second Muhammad Reza Shah was intimately bound up with the U.S. presence in the region.At the end of World ar II Iran became the scene of Western-So- men and women to engage in a struggle that included the use of human wavetactics on the battleeld.Iranian propaganda stressed the duty (and virtue) of self-sacrice.The arwhich included a prolonged radio propaganda duelended in a stalemate in 1988.Meanwhile,Iran became a major sponsor of propaganda through direct ac- tion,that is,terrorism.Irans international propaganda is generally expressed in terms out the world.The approach adopted was to of Ireland made extensive use of propa- gandaespecially censorshipto shape the development of the country. As with so much Irish history,the story of propaganda in Ireland is inextricably linked to England.Ireland entered the sixteenth century with English power concentrated around Dublin.With the arrival of the Refor- mation,Catholic Ireland seemed like an ideo- logical threat to the Protestant English Hyde (18601949),author of the tract Necessity for De-anglicising the Irish People (1892).Associated Gaelic League propaganda included the newspaper that emphasized the Protestant view of his- tory.The annual marches by branches of the Orange Order were an eloquent form of propaganda in which one communitys ver- sion of the past was remembered and that communitys power demonstrated in the po- tent ritual of marching through minority neighborhoods to the beat of an enormous drum.In 1967 Protestant power was sud- denly called into question by a Catholic civil ights movement,which drew inspiration from the contemporaneous achievements of African Americans.The movement used marches and rallies to focus world attention on basic grievances.Its success provoked a vi- olent backlash from parts of the Unionist community.The crisis escalated beyond the control of the provincial government.In Au- gust 1969 the rst British troops arrived in Ulster,ostensibly to protect the Catholic mi- nority.As the British army attempted to con- tain Catholic anger,they too were drawn into a cycle of violence. By the early 1970s the situation in North- ern Ireland had produced a perverse stale- mate.Paramilitary groups based in each com- unitythe Provisional Irish Republican Army and Irish National Liberation Army rep- esenting the Catholic/Nationalist;the Ulster Defence Association and Ulster Volunteer orce representing the Protestant/Unionist employing actors to dub their remarks. Thatchers successor,John Major (1943), lifted the ban in 1994.The British govern- ment was also an active player in the Irish propaganda war,circulating its own version of events internationally and within the do- mestic media of Britain. In the 1990s the entrenched positions of actions in Northern Ireland began to soften. The years 19941995 brought hope in the form of an IRA cease-re.Britains Northern Ireland Office began a new propaganda cam- paign bearing the slogan Rat on a Rat, which utilized television appeals for informa- tion on terrorism.On Good Friday 1998 the parties to the conict agreed to seek a new and mutually acceptable form of government for the province centered on a Northern Irish assembly.The Northern Ireland Executive convened in late 1999,and it seemed that Irish politics had entered a new era.Symbolic points remained moot,with intense debate er such issues as which ags would y and what the name of the police force ought to be.However,the executive stalled over the issue of arms decommissioning,and rule ypes of Propaganda in Israel rg Sociological propaganda to cultivate national identity.

Fluctuations in the severity of the conict which Hebrew teachers help Jews all over the world rediscover their national identity. Furthermore,Israel is assisted in no small measure by the activities of Jewish lobbies throughout the world,such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which helps Israel explain its positions to the .S.administration.Other bodies develop support for the Israeli governments policies and seek to build a national consensus.A ell-oiled government public relations ma- hine has expanded over the years. In Israel,as in other countries,the govern- ment initiates periodic information cam- immediately be credited to intensied prop- aganda efforts. One well-known reection of this cyclical process was discerned in the mid-1970s.In esponse to a sense of increasing diplomatic distress over international criticism of Israels control of territories conquered in the Six- Day War,the government decided to concen- trate propaganda efforts in a special official body,the Information Ministry,entrusted to Brig.(res.) Aharon Yariv (19201994),a for- mer intelligence chief in the Israeli Defense orce (IDF) responsible for political contacts with Egypt.The ministry disappeared once that governments term of office ended.Sim- ilarly,in 2001 Zippi Livni (1958),one of the ministers without portfolio in Ariel Masked by other themes,Verdis operas in- amed the hearts of their listeners,trans- forming each performance into a celebration of patriotism. Three prominent nationalistic leaders and propagandists emerged during this period. Giuseppe Mazzini (18051872),a member and fame of public institutions and authori- ties,or of the offices and agents of the law. In 1912 Italy became the rst country to all who professed Marxist ideas or were ac- tive in Communist parties.But the church alone was not enough to ensure the partys success.Part of the latters appeal was that, following an initial reassessment of political life during the postwar period,the Italian middle class,the aristocrats,and the industri- alists all felt that their interests converged in this Catholic party.Meanwhile,as the Cold ar intensied,Britain and the United States ecognized the Democrazia Cristiana as the only party that could protect the country against Communism.

On the cultural front,the United States sought to remold Japan,in part by gaining the cooperation of the six major domestic lm studios (much as the OWI had worked with Hollywood during the war).As in the print media generally,the United States dis- couraged active discussion of the Japanese past,including the atrocities committed on the Chinese mainland and throughout Asia.

By 1999 the United States had concluded that Milose- vic himself must relinquish power in order a manner that had not been previously seen. It was also argued that a combination of in- formal media and institutional controls meant that the days of the independent tele- vision or newspaper war correspondent were over. Milosevic fell from power a year after the ar and went on trial for war crimes at The Hague,which he used as a platform for dis- playing his deance.The reasons behind Milosevics acceptance of KFOR in 1999 re- main obscure,and the relative importance of the propaganda campaign on both sides is still being debated.Concern about possible ght- ing led the KFOR to use a media poolfor the rst twenty-four hours following its entry into Kosovothe rst use of such a pool since the 1991 Gulf War.Modeled on IFOR,which grew out of the Bosnian crisis and war,KFOR also possessed similar infor- mation capabilities and plans.

Although Reynolds identiÞed himself as a Òneutral reporter,Óhe ent on to extol the virtues of Londoners in a most unneutral way.The MoI arranged for the Þlm to be distributed in the United States ner Brothers.It was screened without an indication that it represented anything other than the views of Reynolds.Such Þlms, Long was a master propagandist,second only to Roosevelt as the most gifted Ameri- can radio personality of his generation.His catchy theme song Every Man a King claimed that everyone could be a million- aire.Longs autobiography of the same title (1933) was distributed widely and proved to be an effective piece of self-promotion.He started his own newspaper, American Progress, and insisted that every state employee sub- scribe to it.Long was deemed newsworthy enough to receive numerous invitations to speak on NBC-Red,the most prestigious British media.Later in the war he stressed the Christian Peace Movement,Radio Cale- donia (aimed at Scotland),and WorkerÕs Challenge.Other ÒtraitorÓbroadcasters in- cluded John Amery (1912Ð1945;son of ait of Martin Luther,sixteenth-century German theologian and instigator of the Protestant Reformation.

Upon his release,he took the name Malcolm X (the NOI believed that names could be used as propaganda,so members rejected their slave names).Malcolm rose quickly through the ranks.He helped establish the movements rst nationally distributed news- paper, Muhammad Speaks, and became well lack Americans to advance.In death he be- came a martyr and an undisputed icon for angry young men.Many activists have associ- ted themselves with his name and cited him as an inspiration,including Huey Newton (19421989) and Bobby Seale (1937),who formed the Black Panthers in 1966.His auto- biography,dictated to journalist Alex Haley (19211992),became a cult text,and his speeches were published widely.In the 1980s, as mainstream politics seemed to leave black America behind,he reemerged as an icon of country was in the grips of a horrendous amine.After being sidelined by his col- leagues,Mao relaunched himself in the mid- 1960s by reaching out Þrst to the army and then to ChinaÕs youth with an anthology of his writings, Quotations from Chairman Mao. 1966 he unleashed the Cultural Revolution, which was marked by successive waves of vi- olence and propaganda until 1969.By the time of his death in 1976,his signiÞcance as a propagandist was being felt far beyond China.Other movements in Asia,Africa,and Latin America (with and without formal Chinese aid) have sought to adapt his model of guerrilla warfare.

An opinion poll carried out by the Eco- nomic Cooperation Administration (ECA) in mid-1950 had interviewed almost two thou- sand people,including citizens from France, Norway,Denmark,Holland,Austria,and Italy.On average,approximately 80 percent of those interviewed knew about the Mar- shall Plan,and 75 percent approved of it.Be- tween 25 and 40 percent of those inter- viewed understood its functioning.But,as the official sponsors of the poll commented, it was among the minorities not on the the motives behind American action,just as Communist propaganda had prompted them to do. The greatest challenge to American action in Europe from summer 1950 onward was the battle against the effects of the Korean War.It is impossible to overestimate the impact throughout Europe of this decisive moment marking the escalation of the Cold War.The ean War brought in its wake a qualitative hange,an unprecedented intensication in the ideological and psychological commit- ment to the anti-Communist crusade.For its part the left-wing opposition insistedwith some successthat the entire episode con- rmed its prediction that the purpose of NATO was to drag Europe into Americas Henceforth problems of military secu- ity would override economic reconstruction in terms of U.S.priorities in Europe.The mil- itarization effort,coinciding with the prospect of general rearmament,cost the promoters of productivity and prosperity dearly. Throughout the ECA it was assumed that the strains of rearmament could lead to in- ternal security crisesin France and Italy,or best skeptical neutralism already evident in a number of other countries.However,ECA men on the ground had already decided that much too great a segment of the European populationsurrounding the question of to local scriptwriters and directors being re- cruited to fabricate the lm propaganda ma- terial based on schemes furnished by the sponsor,which they would then translate into the symbolic,visual,and spoken lan- guage of the Italian audience.In this way the curity and prosperity of Western Europe, and at a time of widespread despair it greatly vived the Old Worlds faith in its own po- tential for renewal.

The continuing revolutionary struggle of the poorest Mexicansrst against Daz, then Huerta,and nally against the liberal Constitutionalistsresulted in a barrage of slogans,cartoons,and songs about the rebel leaders of the period,such as the charismatic peasant generals Emiliano Zapata (ca.1879 1919) and PanchoVilla (ca.18771923). illa had a keen sense of the media and went so far as to sign a lm deal with Hollywoods Mutual Film Company.He obliged its direc- tor,Raoul Walsh (18871980),by staging ac- tion when and where the light was best.He allegedly also executed a few federal troops for the cameras,but the studio cut these scenes for reasons of taste.In the nal version of the lm,which was called The Life of Gen- eral Villa (1914),Walsh himself played Villa as a youth. During World War I the combatants vied for Mexican opinion.German propaganda, trading on resentment against U.S.interven- tions,was particularly intense.Wireless broadcasting played an important role.Presi- dent Venustiano Carranza (18591920) al- lowed German agents to rig up large trans- mitters and receivers atop Mexico Citys Chapultepec Heights,which were used to send and receive war and propaganda mes- ent on the air from Mexico City.It grew into the most inuential commercial station in Latin America,and during the 1950s its oung owner,Emilio Azcrraga Milmo (19301997),became the regions rst great television mogul.In January 1938 President Lzaro Cardenas (18951970) launched the Departamento Autnomo de Prensa y Publi- cidad (DAPP),very similar to European min- istries of information.The DAPP controlled all federal ministry briengs.It attempted (and failed) to increase government owner- ship and direction of the media and later adopted a more pragmatic course.From 1940 the new president,Manuel Avila Camacho es- the province of Chiapas captured the atten- tion of the Mexican and world media.The ebels called themselves the Ejrcito Zapatista de Liberacin Nacional (EZLN),or Zapatista National Liberation Army,thereby claiming the mantle of the revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata.Having seized a string of major towns in Chiapas,they proved adept at presenting themselves to the broadcast media.Their masked,eloquent,non-Indian leader Subco- mandante Marcosbegan by reading a Decla- ration of the Lacadn Jungleto the TV cam- eras,claiming that the rebellions national goal was the establishment of a democratic socialist government.Over a hundred thou- sand supporters rallied in Mexico City.In the months that followed,the Zapatistas provided an articulate challenge to the slick publicity machine of the PRI,thereby hastening the fall of President Carlos Salinas de Gortari (1948).Marcos and the Zapatistas had proved that the propaganda mechanisms of the international media could work for the eak as well as the strong.

British Propaganda During the First World War. London:Macmillan,1982. Norway Scandinavia Novel Fictional narratives,a key mode of human expression,have played their part in the story of propaganda.Early examples of novels used as propaganda include religiously inspired orks such as John Bunyans (16281688) Pilgrims Progress (1678)and political satires such as Jonathan Swifts (16671745) livers Travels syn (1918),author of The Gulag Archipelago (1973).Their works were published in the est,were circulated clandestinely in the USSR,and frequently gured in radio broad- casts beamed back to Russia over stations such as RFE/RL.More recently,the Islamic The Satanic Verses (1989) by Salman Rushdie (1947),calling it blasphemy and placing a death sentence (in absentia) on its author. While the novel has had a distinguished his- tory as an oppositional medium,literary criti- cism has demonstrated the extent to which novels have also underpinned the dominant cultural order in terms of racial,class,and gender stereotyping.In his book Culture and Imperialism (1994) Edward Said (1935) ar- gued that much European literatureinclud- ing Jane Austens Manseld Park (1814),Joseph Conrads Heart of Darkness (1898),and Albert Camuss Ճtranger (The Stranger;1942) implicitly bolstered imperialism. Nicholas J.Cull Oates,Titus (16491705) English anti-Catholic propagandist,cleric, and convicted perjurer,Oates was born in Rutland.His early career gave ample indica- tion of his fondness for lying.He was ex- pelled from school,discharged from service as a naval chaplain,and narrowly escaped a term in jail for libel.In the mid-1670s he fell in with Israel Tonge (16211680) and the two men became xated on the danger of Catholicism to the crown of England.Fol- lowing a false conversion and a period spent in Jesuit colleges in France and Spain to gather evidence,in 1678 Oates established himself as Englands foremost authority on the Catholic conspiracy,spreading his ideas functions included inltrating revolutionary or seditious groups and generally harassing any group that could be seen as a threat to tsarist hegemony.When not contributing to the general fear ingrained in the Russian rul- ing class,much of the Okhranas time and ef- fort was expended in seizing and preventing the distribution of dangerous materials.Al- though the organization was known by vari- ous names under Nicholas Is reign (1825 1855),it was referred to as the third sec- tionOkhrana remained the generic term. 1881 with the Reactionto the attempt on the life of Alexander III (r.18811894).

The sexual frankness of the art appalled missionaries,resulting in the wholesale de- struction of cultural artifacts,especially in ynesia.What offended the missionaries at- tracted others,most famously the artist Paul Gauguin (18481903),whose eroticized im- ration (ABC),Radio France Overseas credited with shifting popular opinion from loyal protest to independence,although aineÕs point was that the British did this themselves by opening Þre on the militia at Lexington in April 1775,an act he compared to that of a brutal mother devouring her oung. aine served as aide to Generals George ashington (1732Ð1799) and Nathanael Greene (1742Ð1786) during the Revolution- ary War,but his greatest contribution to the ar effort was maintaining morale.In De- cember 1776 he wrote the Þrst of the ÒCrisisÓ papers,meant to rally support for a war that the colonists appeared to be losing,which began:ÒThese are the times that try menÕs souls.The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will,in this crisis,shrink from the service of their country;but he that stands it now,deserves the love and thanks of man and oman.Tyranny,like hell,is not easily con- The cover of the 1791 Bradford edition of Thomas Paine's Common Sense.

(everything is propaganda) is not very help- ful.Equally unhelpful are those denitions that attempt to encapsulate in a single sen- tence larded with qualiers all the distinctive and distinguishing features of propaganda. Most writers on the subject agree that propa- ganda is concerned with inuencing opinion. Frederick Lumley (18801954) and William Albig,among others,regard secrecy or a ment in propaganda;as soon as the source is ealed,as in advertising,the activity ceases to be propaganda.Others stress the contro- sial element in propaganda.Harold Lass- ell has argued that while the spread of con- troversial attitudes is propaganda,the spread of accepted attitudes and skills is a form of education.Similarly,Leonard Doob (1909 2000) has suggested that propaganda is the ttempt to affect the personalities and to control the behavior of individuals toward ends considered unscientic or of doubtful propaganda is to persuade its subject that there is only one valid point of view and to eliminate all other options.What follows is a r suggestion,then this process may be called education,regardless of the intention of the educator.Leonard W.Doob.

Beginning in the mid-1920s the U.S.gov- ernment began broadcasting to Latin Amer- ica to promote the cause of Pan-American unity,but it was slow in developing this activ- ity.Boston-based station WIXAL,the rst major U.S.commercial station aimed at erseas listeners,began broadcasting in 1933.Commercial broadcasts opposed all proposals for large-scale U.S.government sponsorship of radio propaganda,such as the 1937 plan devised by Rep.Emmanuel Celler (18881981) to broadcast anti-Nazi mes- sages to Latin America.The pressure sur- ounding World War II led to the founding of the Voice of America (VOA).The BBC acted as a midwife,providing advice and allowing the VOA to use its transmission facilities. The Cold War led to the creation of new propaganda stations,including the CIA- funded Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty (RFE/RL).The United States also main- tained a station called Radio in the American Sector (RIAS) in West Berlin,which eventu- ally became part of the United States Infor- mation Agency (USIA).RIAS played an im- portant role in encouraging the East German ising of June 1953.The Cold War intro- duced the phenomenon of jamming,whereby a high-powered signal containing just noise as broadcast on the same frequency as the foreign station.Stations affected often moved their frequency slightly so as to dodge the jammers in a radio game of cat and mouse. English-language broadcasts to the USSR not jammed and allegedly served as a elcome source of news for senior Commu- nist Party officials. Germanys international radio station Deutsche Welle (Voice of Germany;literally German [Air] Wave) was originally founded in 1929.It began life broadcasting in German to German-speaking populations around the orld.In 1953 the station was relaunched by ARD,the West German broadcasting federa- tion,and soon diversied into foreign-lan- guage broadcasting.Since 1960 it has been operated by the federal government. International broadcasting has seen nu- merous black propaganda stations,that is, radio stations purporting to represent one oup but actually subsidized by another.The most famous of these was the British station Soldaten Sender Eins(Soldiers Radio One), which was beamed at Germany during World States introduced a new radio station called prominent anti-Communist voice,support- ing the investigations of the House Commit- tee on Un-American Activities (HUAC).He also acted as corporate spokesman for the General Electric company.

By the 1540s Protestantism dominated Scandinavia and northern Germany,appar- ently being close to taking over the rest of Germany and Poland,Bohemia-Moravia,and Hungary-Transylvania.It was dominant in Switzerland,had a strong position in France, and was only under control in Spain and Por- tugal,where the Inquisition had thus far Reformation and Counter-Reformation339 managed to suppress it.The Jesuits used the rst part of the Council of Trent (1545 1547),the leadership of which they in effect took over,to strengthen papal authority over the church and to formulate alternative Catholic positions to the Protestant ones. These were spread by means of education and propaganda.The Jesuits worked both se- nia the Protestants were saved by the Ot- toman occupation.Print propaganda on both sides emphasized the enemys atrocities and the religious virtue of the home side.

The power of satellite reports from the battlefield was seen during the Gulf War. The technology gave the Western media the sort of news monopoly not seen since the British cable ship cut the German undersea cable to the United States at the beginning of World War I.The power of this news monopoly was not lost on ob- servers of the Gulf War.The 1990s saw many nations developing their own launch acilities,launching their satellites from ve- hicles belonging to other nations,and ex- panding their television systems to accept more satellite feeds.These new satellites carried news,propaganda,and entertain- ment;some were used for surveillance.In- spired,in part,by the rapid privatization of tively little disturbance.The Danish court ourished,most notably during the reign of Christian IV (r.15961648).The court used the usual Renaissance tools of political propa- ganda (architecture,portraiture,and so forth).Denmark also claimed to have the rst national banner, Dannebrog (Denmarks Cloth),consisting of a red eld with a white cross.According to Danish legend,in 1219 it miraculously oated down from heaven into the camp of the young king Valdemar II (r. 12021241) on the eve of a battle against the heathen Estonians.Its image immediately ap- peared on coins and was incorporated into existing heraldry.The original banner was carried and lost in battle as late as 1500,but full banners of the same design were already in use.Other Scandinavian nations adopted Dannebrog, the Swedish ag being Gustav Vasas deliberate counterpoint to the Danish one:blue with a yellow cross. In Denmark the ag remains a key symbol of national identity,used not only for national holidays but also during Christmas and birth- day celebrations. The seventeenth century saw the apogee of Swedish power in Scandinavia and beyond, beginning with the reigns of Gustav Adolf (15941632),who acceded to the throne in 1611 and ruled as Gustav II with the assis- tance of Axel Oxenstierna (15831684),a hancellor of legendary ability.Gustav Adolf led Sweden into the Thirty YearsWar after the unsuccessful intervention of the Danish king.His success on the battleeld was matched by the calculated manipulation of his own (widely reproduced) image as the paragon of Protestant kingship.To preserve this image of virtue,he imposed rigid disci- pline on his army,forbidding his soldiers from participating in the looting and rapine typical of the era.However,the Swedish army soon reverted to type following Gustav Adolfs death on the battleeld.Swedens ca- eer as a great power came to an abrupt end in 1718 with the death of its warrior king Charles XII (r.16971718),who perished at the hands of a sniper during the Great North- ern War (17001721) in Norway.Playing up the kings almost supernatural reputation,a widely circulated Swedish/Norwegian story of the time claimed that the sniper used a 1879),an Icelandic historian and authority on the ancient sagas,founded the nationalist periodical Ny felagsrit (New Fellowship Writ- ing;1841) and campaigned for home rule, which was granted by Denmark in 1874.Ice- land gained full independence in 1944.A similar event occurred on the Faroe Islands,a Danish dependency,paving the way for home In Norway patriotic writers included Hen- ik Wergeland (18081845) and Bjrnstjerne Bjrnson (18231910).The latter also took part in the international peace movement and campaigned on behalf of such oppressed peo- ples as the Finns and the Slovaks.He won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1903.The linguist ell as strategic value.In May 1942 John Christmas Mller (18981948),a leading conservative politician,made a dramatic es- cape by boat to England.There he became hairman of the Free Danish Council and launched a series of patriotic radio broadcasts back home over the BBC,comparable in their impact to those of Churchill to the British people.In addition to acts of sabotage,the re- sistance coordinated a wave of strikes in Au- gust 1943 (which prompted German direct became a staple of British propaganda in the modern world,William Shakespeare was born in Stratford,located in the Midlands.

The United Nations has become an active player in the world of international commu- nications through its commissions and agen- cies.The United Nations Educational,Scien- tic,and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Paris,founded in 1945 (and a UN agency since 1946),has promoted education and in- tellectual exchange around the world.UN- ESCO attracted controversy in the 1970s when the Third World membership initiated a drive for a so-called New World Interna- tional Communications Order.The specics 500,000 copies in a country with three mil- lion inhabitants.American governance is also connected to the medium of the newspaper, the rst of which,the The Constitutions Bill of Rights guaran- teed a free press and freedom of speech.Yet as early as 1798 Congress passed the Alien and Sedition Acts,making it a crime to criti- cize John Adams (17351826),Federalist president of the United States.Though this notorious legislation was soon permitted to expire,it left behind a legacy threatening to those considering an open attack on any in- cumbent administration.No propaganda had eater impact than the published in 1829 in Boston by David Walker (ca.1796 1830),a black man.His lengthy tract urged slaves to use violence to gain their freedom, sending great waves of fear throughout the slaveholding South.Indeed,the entire aboli- tionist struggle (18201860) represents a dening moment in U.S.propaganda.A great moral wrong was debated in special-interest publications,but it was generally not talked about on the oor of Congress;on this sub- ject Americas political institutions proved in- capable of nonviolent compromise.The one piece of propaganda that did the most to make the abolitionist case was Uncle Toms viewers in that bygone era.Presidential cam- paigning has involved national radio ad- dresses and (since 1960) televised presiden- tial debates,which have transferred the stump speech to another medium. ar has tempted the government to seek temporary ways of restricting the opposi- tional potential of the media.The Sedition Act of 1917 and the notorious Espionage Act of 1918 enabled Woodrow Wilson (1856 1924) to send to prison anyone criticizing the ar effort;the Supreme Court upheld time restrictions on freedom of speech and the press in Schenck v.United States (1919),where Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes (18411933) famously declared that no citizen has the right to cry refalsely in a crowded theater. ears of oppositional propaganda mean that the electronic media have not been given full citizenship when it comes to freedom of speech.In the FCCs 1941 Mayowerruling, broadcasters were told they could not edito- ialize;this so-called Fairness Doctrinewas Red Lion Broadcasting v.FCC where the courts ruled in favor of denying a broadcast license to someone not serving the public interest,convenience,and neces- sity.The print media have never been so idly controlledthough not because a journalist believes the federal government cannot do him or her harm. Houchin. New York: Columbia University Press,1994. .S.propaganda in the 1930s relates di- ectlybut not exclusivelyto President Franklin Roosevelts (18821945) New Deal program.Roosevelt himself was a masterful public speaker.His voice had a certain aristo- cratic quality that he made no attempt to dis- guise.His sense of timing meant that he un- derstood how to give listenersradio being the primary mass medium in the United States in the 1930senough time to savor a particular phrase.Roosevelts chief speech- writer was his longtime friend Samuel Rosenman,but many of FDRs memorable phrases were his own,as can be seen by not- ing Roosevelts penciled emendations to typescripts prepared by others.For example, in his rst reelection speech on 8 October 1940 in Philadelphia,the ironic suggestion that Republican oratorswere shedding tearscrocodile tearsat the prospect of taking charge of New Deal programs was his wn ideaand his audience loved the humor. Roosevelt felt he was his own best propa- gandist,although he distrusted the ability of propaganda to cover up official shortcom- ings.Roosevelt sold his New Deal policies in a relatively few so-called reside chats,in which the president spoke to the nation in a less formal style than was the custom for presidents.Visitors to the White House saw the replace (with fake logs) where Roo- sevelt made his national radio addresses,car- Depression America.After Pearl Harbor the emaining FSA photographers turned to im- ages of a bountiful,prosperous land.Federal Arts Projects also projected an image of a re- vitalized America.Murals (intended for post offices and other public buildings) were commissioned as Works Progress Adminis- tration (WPA) relief work.They were painted in an American socialist realist style, where workers tend to be muscular and re- ional culture is often ennobled.The Federal Theater Project adapted topics favorable to the New Deal in a series of Living Newspa- perproductions.For example, Power fended the socialist content of the TVA and openly advocated public control of utilities. Harry Hopkins (18901946),head of the WPA,commented on the political content of the play:People will say its propaganda. ell,I say what of it?Other Living News- papertopics focused on the value of labor unions. Roosevelt even introduced television as a new medium to mark the opening of the New York Worlds Fair in April 1939.A primitive television camera positioned next to conventional newsreel cameras captured FDRs opening remarks,which were sent by wire to downtown New York City.Roosevelt appeared on television again in 1940 and was seen by a few hundred industry executives at best,but otherwise television as a medium of political communication had to wait until David Culbert Labor/Antilabor;Long,Huey; The Plow that Broke the Plains; Roosevelt,Franklin D.; United States Curtis,James.

Propaganda in an Open who sought to reform U.S.cities.Prominent Progressives included Theodore Roosevelt (1858Ð1919),who made his name as an inno- tive police commissioner in New York City and pushed through reforms during his presi- dency (1901Ð1909).Also prominent was Jane Addams (1860Ð1935),who founded Hull House in Chicago in 1899 to promote the elfare of immigrants.Investigative (Òmuck- rakingÓ) journalists of the era included Ida (1866Ð1936),who both contributed to ClureÕs magazine,and the African-American The USIA (known overseas as USIS) took pains to reach al populations in the Third World during the Cold War. Here Masai people in Kenya wait in line to view a USIA exhibit on agriculture in 1957.(National Archives) many other organs of U.S.propaganda,in- cluding the embassy-based United States In- formation Service (USIS) offices (which gave their name to all USIA operations over- seas).The USIA never had control of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). During the administration of President Jimmy Carter (1924Ð) the agency carried the alternative name United States Interna- tional Communications Agency (USICA). Owing to the legislative restrictions of the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948,the USIA was never able to conduct propaganda within the United States or even to show its films without a special act of Congress;hence the agencyÕs work was not well known by the American people.The fortunes of the USIA frequently linked to that of its director and,in turn,that personÕs relationship to the president.Although the USIA director as not a statutory member of the National Security Council (NSC),some presidentsÑ such as Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan (1911Ð)Ñmade a point of allowing the The USIA outreach techniques in rural areas included bookmobiles such as this one in Rangoon,Burma,1953.(National Archives) Czechoslovakia,1968; made in 1969).Two (including the latter) won Academy Awards in the best documentary shortcategory. The following have served as directors of the agency:Theodore Streibert (1953 1956),Arthur Larson (19561957),George Allen (19571960),Edward R.Murrow (19611964),Carl T.Rowan (19641965), Leonard Marks (19651968),Frank Shake- speare (19691973),James Keogh (1973 1976),John Reinhardt (19771981),Charles Z.Wick (19811989),Bruce Gelb (1989 1991),Henry Catto (19911993),Joseph Duffey (19931999).Of these,Murrow brought with him considerable prestige as a ell-known broadcaster and did much to raise the national prole of the agency.Carl Rowan and Leonard Marks found themselves strug- Qinzhouwan region of China.Different parts of Indo-China were ruled in various ways.

(Voice of America) The War Game This lm is both a classic of antiwar propa- ganda and an example of television censor- ship.In 1965 the British Broadcasting Corpo- ration (BBC) commissioned then rising star manipulating its audience.Propaganda,how- er,may also be open and aboveboard.For example,when the Nazis came to power in 1933,one of the rst government depart- ments to be established was the Ministry for opular Enlightenment and Propaganda.The is known,aims and intentions are identied, and the public knows that an attempt is being ducer who became closely associated with Ronald ReaganÕs (1911Ð) 1980 presidential campaign.Wick distinguished himself as a fund-raiser and successfully organized inau- gural festivities.Reagan recognized his po- tential to revitalize the USIA.The agency had not fared well under the Carter adminis- tration,having been renamed the Interna- tional Communications Agency (ICA).Now it became a hive of activity.Wick restored Wick,Charles Z.427 the old name and increased propaganda to a level recalling the heady days of the early Eisenhower administration.He built up the oice of America (VOA) and established Radio Mart,a radio station aimed at Cuba.

The womenÕs movement in the United States developed in the north and was linked to other reform movements,such as the abo- litionist movement.In 1848 the Þrst of a se- ies of womenÕs conventions were held at Seneca Falls,New York,where a ÒDeclaration of SentimentsÓwas drafted that pointedly made use of the framework of the Declara- tion of Independence.Leaders of the move- eferenda campaigns became much more in- entive and eye-catching in their propa- ganda thanks to the success of the California Pioneers of woman suffrage in Britain in- cluded John Stuart Mill (18061873),no- tably in his work entitled The Subjugation of (1869).Most British suffragists did not use the mass propaganda techniques of their U.S.counterparts.They were reluctant to address mixed audiences publicly and there were no womens conventions.Class rather than race issues caused divisions. almost three hundred women were arrested for civil disobedience.These tactics did not become widespread in the United States. While U.S.women organized for suffrage during wartime,most of those involved in the British womens movement suspended their campaigns after Britain declared war on Germany in 1914.Emmeline and Christabel ankhurst (18801958) turned their ener- ies to supporting the war effort.Although it is generally agreed that World War I played a Britain from 1968 to 1970 shared many of the same issues,aims,and key texts with the feminist movement in the United States,it as more closely linked to socialist and Marxist groups of the New Left.However, of negative social change and moral decay. The backlash was stronger and more effective in the United States,particularly in the anti- abortion movement.At the same time,how- er,women adopted an increasingly positive stance toward the political system and organ- ized to increase their representation. In the 1990s it was argued that we had en- tered a postfeministage.Films and adver- tisements increasingly portrayed women as assertive and empowered,and womens stud- ies courses were replaced by gender studies, encouraging a tendency to assume gender equality.A mens movement developed,with books by such male authors as Neil Lyndons (1946) No More Sex War (1992).Lyndon questioned the historical assumptions under- pinning feminism;however his argument was educed by critics into a crude claim that men had now become the victims.A number of pressure groups were formed to address mens lack of rights,especially in the area of hild custody.Naomi Wolfs (1962) book (1990) and Susan Faludis (1959) Backlash (1992) were particularly inuential in documenting how the legal and social gains previously made by the womens movement were now being eroded.Wolf ar- gued that beauty had replaced domesticity as patriarchys latest propaganda weapon against omen.Feminism had successfully con- vinced women that they were not obliged to adopt traditional roles,but womens time, money,and emotional energy were now being consumed by attempts to conform to the media ideals of beauty with which they surrounded.Faludi pointed to continu- states at war,which remains the dominant usage.Since World War I organized propa- ganda has been regarded as an essential part of any war effort,increasing in importance played a signiÞcant part in the decision by the United States to enter the war.Its scope and success caused a scandal among American isolationists when revealed after the war.

(Courtesy of David Culbert) British activity in World War I.Prewar plan- ning proved chaotic,and the dress rehearsal in the form of the Munich Pact of 1938 showed that Britain had much to do to pre- pare for a full-scale war.Despite an accelera- tion of planning in 1939,the British began the war with an inefficient propaganda appa- ratus both at home and abroad,specically the neutral nations.Britain adopted the strat- egy of conducting propaganda with fact, basing key campaigns,including its approach to the neutral United States,on facilitating commercial news coverage of the war.This orked well,especially during the London Britains principal propaganda structures the Ministry of Information (MoI) for home,allied,and neutral territory,and the olitical Warfare Executive (PWE) for enemy territory.The programs of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) earned Britain a powerful reputation for credibility [RMVP]),whose minister was Joseph Goeb- However,there was a basic contradiction Enormous vertical red banners,at the time of a Nazi Party ally,Nuremberg,September 1934,seen in Leni Riefenstahl's propaganda Þlm iumph of the Will.

Editors and writers,along with the general population,believed in the justice of Japans cause and its ability to defeat its enemies. ith the attack on Pearl Harbor in De- cember 1941,Japan was faced with the daunting military task of ghting on two fronts simultaneouslyin China and the Pa- cic.The Japanese government asked its peo- ple,already under duress since the mid- 1930s,to endure further economic estrictions,recycle scarce materials,do with less,and live by wartime slogans such as lux- ury is the enemy.During the many Pacic is- land battles,American troops found it diffi- cult to take Japanese prisoners alive.A great number of both Japanese civilian and military personnel often chose suicide over capture. Intense domestic pressure and propaganda campaigns often left Japanese infantrymen little choice. While Japanese propaganda generally ailed in Asia,domestically the results were different.By the summer of 1945 the United States had to acknowledge that Japanese rule, with the emperor as head,must be left intact or a viable peace would not be obtainable. ollowing the Japanese capitulation on 15 ugust 1945,the U.S.-managed occupation as quick to install its own pro-Western propaganda institutions.However,the occu- pation forces soon realized that they had nei- ther the human resources nor the ability needed to democratizeJapan single-hand- edly.Ironically,American occupation forces employed many of the same high-level Japan- ese special police and military propagandists who,only months earlier,had been ghting against the West.

President Roosevelt initially took a back- seat in the debate because of the impending presidential election.In December 1940 he demonstrated more active leadership by ad- ancing his ÒLend LeaseÓaid policy through a ÒÞreside chatÓover the radio.The Lend-Lease Act,promising Òall aid short of war,Ópassed Congress on March 15,1941.As part of its policy of rearmament,the Roosevelt admin- istration established a number of propaganda and information organizations,including the Rockefeller Bureau to rally opinion in Latin America (1940);the Office of Government Reports (1939) and Office of Facts and Fig- ures (1940) to present information at home; and the Office of the Coordinator of Infor- mation,a new covert intelligence agency that included a propaganda branch.In August 1941 Roosevelt persuaded Churchill to sign the Atlantic Charter,calling for a postwar United Nations and a policy of unconditional surrender.By the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor,December 7,1941,the de- bate over U.S.foreign policy had been all but ld War II U.S.poster.Every combatant made similar Recruiting poster for women during World War II.(National Archives) Signal Corps lm series Why We Fight) and to motivate its civilian population.The ap- oslavia Zimmermann Telegram (1917) Labour Partys opponents hammered home class.The earliest publicity material of Herzl- ian Zionism consisted of a series of postcards and delegatescards produced in conjunction with the First Zionist Congress.Although crude by later standards,these items helped introduce the pantheon of Zionist heroes to a wide audience,notably Herzl and Max Nor- dau (18491923),who formed the mainstay of Zionist imagery through World War I.
