A comprehensive major work on the topic of propaganda studies is required now more than ever. Not least because in the age of the 'War on Terror', we've witnessed terrorist bombings - suicide and otherwise - all over the world, which are often later accompanied by, and frequently preceded by, the use of propaganda to enhance the feeling of terror amongst the target population. Furthermore, propaganda is particularly important to study in this day and age because - despite its use over millennia - it is still poorly defined and understood. This timely four-volume set brings much needed clarity and context to the subject, leading the reader through its historic origins, its military uses, and the modern means by which it is manifested. Specifically - through a carefully selected collection of seminal and influential articles - the editors seek to demystify the topic of propaganda and explain how it works on the human psyche. Framed by an introduction written by two of the field's leading voices, this set is organised to provide the reader with a solid and detailed grounding in all aspects of the subject, past and present: Volume One: Historical Origins, Definitions and the Changing Nature of Propaganda Volume Two: The Psychological and Sociological Underpinnings of Propaganda Volume Three: Propaganda in Military and Terrorism Contexts Volume Four: Advances and Contemporary Issues in Propaganda Studies

On Artillery Greenwood Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Gudmundsson tells the story of field artillery in the 20th century and its impact on the major conflicts of our time. Its purpose is to provide the reader--whether artilleryman or not--with hitherto unavailable insights on the role that artillery plays in the larger battle and how that has helped shape the world that we live in today. Unique aspects of the book include the treatment of technical issues in non-technical language, the extensive use of German and French sources generally unavailable to the English-speaking reader, the shattering of some long-cherished myths, and the discussion of issues that are often papered over in the literature of field artillery--losses from friendly fire, the frequent impotence of counter-battery fire, and the French origins of current American doctrine. The bulk of the literature on field artillery can be fairly described as gunner propaganda. Gudmundsson, with his emphasis on the way artillery interacts with other arms and the dynamics of the battle as a whole, takes a more balanced and a more critical view, dealing with the failures as well as the achievements of field artillery. This study provides a thorough overview of field artillery in non-technical language that will be of interest to military professionals, military historians, and wargamers.
Drug Wars University of Minnesota Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Inaugurated in 1984, America's "War on Drugs" is just the most recent skirmish in a standoff between global drug trafficking and state power. From Britain's nineteenth-century Opium Wars in China to the activities of Colombia's drug cartels and their suppression by U.S.-backed military forces today, conflicts over narcotics have justified imperial expansion, global capitalism, and state violence, even as they have also fueled the movement of goods and labor around the world.In Drug Wars, cultural critic Curtis Marez examines two hundred years of writings, graphic works, films, and music that both demonize and celebrate the commerce in cocaine, marijuana, and opium, providing a bold interdisciplinary exploration of drugs in the popular imagination. Ranging from the writings of Sigmund Freud to pro-drug lord Mexican popular music, gangsta rap, and Brian De Palma's 1983 epic Scarface, Drug Wars moves from the representations and realities of the Opium Wars to the long history of drug and immigration enforcement on the U.S.-Mexican border, and to cocaine use and interdiction in South America, Middle Europe, and among American Indians. Throughout Marez juxtaposes official drug policy and propaganda with subversive images that challenge and sometimes even taunt government and legal efforts.As Marez shows, despite the state's best efforts to use the media to obscure the hypocrisies and failures of its drug policies-be they lurid descriptions of Chinese opium dens in the English popular press or Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign-marginalized groups have consistently opposed the expansion of state power that drug traffic has historically supported.Curtis Marez is assistant professorof critical studies at the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television.
Policing & War in Europe Greenwood Publishing Group
This volume seeks to mark a departure in criminal justice history. The seven chapter essays, together with the reviews of 12 major works in the area, establish the series as a forum for exploring areas of research in the criminal justice area in its historical, criminological, legal and social aspects. Common themes and issues that emerge from the study of policing and warring from the perspectives of both the nation state and the local community are explored. Elaine Reynolds and Barry Godrey examine the daily work of nightwatchmen, and private and public police in bringing order to the streets in times of peace and war. Mark Clapson and Clive Emsley examine the problem of the policeman's image in the culture of his community, and Richard Ireland illustrates how scientific advances in crime detection brought the stereotyping of criminals rather than their arrest and conviction. Michael Broers and David Smith reveal the dramatic impact that world war brought to the problem of policing occupied territory, while Simon Kitson demonstrates the dangers that can occur when the civilian police are used to invigilate racist policies of a totalitarian regime. The resource is designed to be of use to scholars, students and other researchers involved with legal, political and military history, criminal justice studies, sociology and criminology, and criminal law.
