Synopsis : The Encyclopedia of Media and Propaganda in Wartime America brings together a group of distinguished scholars to explore how war has been reported and interpreted by the media in the United States and what effects those reports and interpretations have had on the people at home and on the battlefield. Covering press-U.S. military relationships from the early North American colonial wars to the present wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this two-volume encyclopedia focuses on the ways in which government and military leaders have used the media to support their actions and the ways in which the media has been used by other forces with different views and agendas. The volumes highlight major events and important military, political, and cultural players, offering fresh perspectives on all of America's conflicts. Bringing these wars together in one source allows readers to see how media affected the conflicts individually, but also understand how the use of the various forms of media (print, radio, television, film, and electronic) have developed and changed over the years.
Critique: "A solid, quick reference for general readers and casual history buffs with an interest in this facet of wartime history." - Library Journal "A good ready-reference source for readers wanting a brief overview of an important historical topic ... this set's focus on this specialized topic makes it unique and recommended for academic and large public libraries." - Booklist "Entries are informative and generally provide expansive explanations of the people and events involved... Recommended." - Choice
