  • The book’s four case studies have been updated and strengthened to demonstrate their relevance not only to past and contemporary culture, but also to the study of propaganda campaigns.
  • New coverage of how a propaganda case study can be structured to reveal the components of a campaignallows students to compare strengths and weaknesses across different types of campaigns and evaluate the relative success of various propaganda strategies.
  • Updated research on persuasion and expanded coverage of collective memory as it appears in new memorials and monuments enhances the presentation.
  • Current examples of propaganda, especially the ways it is disseminated via the Internet, deepen student understanding.
  • New illustrations and photos add a unique visual dimension that helps readers conceptualize methods of persuasion and propaganda.
