Manning and Herbert Romerstein bring a profound knowledge of official U.S. propaganda to this reference work. T he dictionary is further enriched by a substantial bibliography, and an outstanding annotated listing of more than 105 special collections worldwide that contain material important to the study of U.S. propaganda.Students, researchers, librarians, lecturers, and interested general readers will find the Historical Dictionary of American Propaganda an authoritative reference work for quick information on a wide range of events, publications, media, people, government agencies, government plans, organizations, and symbols that provided mechanisms to promote America's interests, both abroad and domestically, in peace and in war.
