            Contrary to the usual image of the press in its search for truth, this book depict how an underlying elite consensus largely structures all facets of the news. It is an account of how propagandistic our mass media are, and how we can learn to read them and see their function in a... radical way. It reveals how issues are framed and topics are chosen.

            The most comprehensive work in the English language on the planet, that looks at the question of whether fluorine should be considered an essential element. This investigation has a tie-in with Community Water Fluoridation (CWF); advocates of CWF have claimed fluorine to be an es...sential element. I conclude much of these claims are exaggeration.

            Influential fundraising groups and senators in the US made enormous efforts in the First Afghan War to present the Mujahedeen as `freedom fighters' - even while the CIA secretly armed them with surface to air missiles and other weapons. A mass propaganda effort was launched, aime...d at portraying parts of Afghanistan as victims of communist aggression. As we know now, many of those groups that were armed became the seedbeds for organisations like Al-Qaeda. Dr Jacqueline Fitzgibbon, through a forensic investigation of the American PR of the period, argues that this militarised and fractured Afghan society for a generation - partly resulting in the mess today. This book will look specifically at the American efforts to suppress any reports which showed these forces as anti-western or anti `American values', and instead to portray the arming of partisan groups, often an extremely dangerous course of action, as an example of American values in action.

            Aerial Propaganda and the Wartime Occupation of France, 1914-1918 explores the combined role played by the French and British Governments and Armies in creating and distributing millions of aerial newspapers and leaflets aimed at the French population trapped behind German lines.... Drawing on extensive research and French, German and British primary sources, the book highlights a previously unknown aspect of psychological warfare that challenges the established interpretation that the occupied populations lived in a state of total isolation and that the Allied governments had no desire to provide them with morale support. Instead a very different picture emerges from this study, which demonstrates that aerial propaganda not only played a fundamental role in raising morale in the occupied territories but also fuelled resistance and clandestine publications. This book demonstrates that the existing historiographical portrayal of the occupied civilian as an uninformed victim must be replaced by a more nuanced interpretation.
