Strategies for global change

First Edition

Emma Briant

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Draws on interviews with key figures involved in planning of post 9/11 conflicts to give insight into propaganda strategy, an often neglected aspect of the Anglo-American relationship
  • Forensic analysis of often hidden struggles that occurred over changes to 'update' propaganda practices, changes which challenged existing structures of legitimacy and which largely occurred in isolation from public debate
  • Presents interviews with key personnel describing the key role of the Anglo-American relationship in the function of the propaganda war. These interviews indicated that it could enable the two countries to avoid certain domestic restrictions, calling into question the adequacy of controls
  • With fast-paced evolution of the global information sphere, the book highlights a need for public reexamination of controls and legal restrictions in national security propaganda
