Visual images have been a central component of propaganda for as long as propaganda has been produced. Terrorist groups, with very little initial investment, are making videos that are coming so close to the quality of BBC or CNN broadcasts that the difference is meaningless, and with access to the web, they have instantaneous access to a global audience. Dr. Cori E. Dauber is an Associate Professor of Communication Studies and of Peace, War, and Defense at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is the 2008-09 Visiting Research Professor at the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College. Her current work focuses on terrorist and insurgent efforts to manipulate Western press coverage. Dr. Dauber s work has been published in Military Review and briefed to the John F. Kennedy School for Special Warfare, the Canadian Forces College, and to NATO Public Affairs Officers. Dr. Dauber holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern, in Communication Studies. Presumed first edition/first printing. Very good. Cover has slight wear and soiling.
