Four Volume Set
Edited by:

November 2012 | 1 448 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
A comprehensive major work on the topic of propaganda studies is required now more than ever. Not least because in the age of the 'War on Terror', we've witnessed terrorist bombings - suicide and otherwise - all over the world, which are often later accompanied by, and frequently preceded by, the use of propaganda to enhance the feeling of terror amongst the target population. Furthermore, propaganda is particularly important to study in this day and age because - despite its use over millennia - it is still poorly defined and understood. This timely four-volume set brings much needed clarity and context to the subject, leading the reader through its historic origins, its military uses, and the modern means by which it is manifested. Specifically - through a carefully selected collection of seminal and influential articles - the editors seek to demystify the topic of propaganda and explain how it works on the human psyche.

Framed by an introduction written by two of the field's leading voices, this set is organised to provide the reader with a solid and detailed grounding in all aspects of the subject, past and present:

Volume One: Historical Origins, Definitions and the Changing Nature of Propaganda

Volume Two: The Psychological and Sociological Underpinnings of Propaganda

Volume Three: Propaganda in Military and Terrorism Contexts
