Collects and comments on materials about the theory and practice of propaganda in twentieth century war and politics. World War I was the first "total" war in history, and propaganda was disseminated to affirm the righteous cause, sustain morale, discomfit the enemy, placate allies, and pressure neutrals. The process continued in each war thereafter, down to and including the 1991 Gulf War, differentiating only to the extent that propagandists had access to ever more elaborate technologies of mass communications. The bibliography includes works about propaganda theory; sources that deal with the motivation, planning, and purpose of propaganda; includes sources relating to the media through which the propaganda was disseminated; and samples of actual propaganda, ranging from feature films to published pamphlets. The author has chosen entries that provide the most useful sampling of the great variety of propaganda theory and practice that has developed in the twentieth century, with reference specifically to war and politics.

...excellent...Robert Cole has performed an extremely useful service for historians, political scientists, and media analysts alike...easy to use. The combined theoretical and empirical approach means that, unlike others, this bibliography amounts to more than the sum of its parts...Cole deserves praise. He is particularly adept at summarizing complex arguments and skillful when examining film material, much of which is sadly no longer extant...highly recommended, both as a time-saver for historians of propaganda and as a means of enlightenment to others working in more conventional fields of the discipline. * International History Review *
...an outstanding bibliography on an important topic. * Reference and User Services Quarterly *
...represents a synthesis of a vast amount of material. Cole's annotations are informative and his selections wide-ranging, and the book provides considerable insight into an important political and cultural phenomenon of the 20th century. * AB Bookman's Weekly *
