Brainwash is a word that conjures up images of Goebbels and the KGB. This book, however, moves closer to home and reveals that mind manipulation is alive and well and not something that merely happens to less "sophisticated" nations. Using modern examples, this book examines the establishment and the media, and shows that while Western governments may not confiscate radios like Stalin's henchmen, the control of information is just as rigid. The book cites examples such as Northern Ireland, where broadcast bans were introduced "to prevent propaganda". Since 1971, more than 30 programmes have been censored because of it. In 1989, after the government had tried to stop another, Thames TV's "Death on the Rock", "The Independent" newspaper commentated that "when truth and power conflict, truth can win some individual battles - but in the end power wields the bigger guns".
