Weapons of Mass Dissemination: The Propaganda of War

Price: $22.00

By Sarah Schleuning
 
During the first half of the twentieth century the great political powers waged two world wars. Leaders of the combatant nations exhorted their citizens to make monumental sacrifices to hasten victory--from enlisting in the armed forces to conserving valued resources. Government agencies as well as private organizations used powerful visual weapons to evoke feelings of fear and anger, pride and patriotism.

Weapons of Mass Dissemination: The Propaganda of War demonstrates ways in which many of the strategies of propaganda used a half century ago continue to pervade our lives today. This publication is richly illustrated with objects from The Wolfsonian's renowned collection of political propaganda from the United States, Europe, and Asia, including posters, housewares, children's games, and ephemera.
