This collection of studies, based on an international conference at the University of Kent--the leading academic institution in the field of Media and Propaganda Studies--by leading academics specializing in disciplines ranging from military history to political science, with journalists, the military and civil service experience, is a unique cross-fertilization between academics and media professionals. It takes the story from the early 20th century showing the effect of the Boer War on British and German propaganda and World War I, through World War II, the Cold War and Vietnam, the more recent conflicts in the Falklands, the Gulf and Kosovo and finally, and most importantly 9/11 and its effect.
