An eye-opening overview of American cultural policy fully updated through to the end of the Bush presidency, Propaganda Inc reveals how the US Information Agency became a bureaucracy deeply distrustful of dissent, and one-way in its promotion of American corporate interests overseas. Nancy Snow spent two years inside the Agency, and here provides an insider's account of its crooked relationship to corporate interest and war. Simply a must-read for those concerned with American propaganda and the war on terror.
