'Propaganda in the ancient world and its development in the twentieth century, the First World War; Nazi propaganda at home and abroad; the Second World War and the rise of broadcasting as a propagandist medium; Communist propaganda and its dependence upon Marxist 'double talk'; propaganda in education and its effect on the writing of history; commercial propaganda. Ranging from religion to advertising, the author quotes numerous examples to illustrate his points and finally considers how far propaganda in its multiple forms does or does not achieve its desired results.'
