"[H]igh culture provided the basis for Cold War propaganda as much as the Cold War manipulated representations of high culture.... [I]n the case of ... Europe, cultural relations and exchanges had been in place before, both on the level of high and popular culture. The Cold War ...triggered programmes to finance individual interactions that would otherwise not have been taking place. But it did not inspire new cultural affinities.... These had been in place before and they remained in place thereafter."

Fischer, I&NS 16.3, notes that the author's focus is on the German-language newspaper, Neue Zeitung, launched by the U.S. Office of Military Government in Germany in 1945. The initial period of editorial autonomy ended in September 1947, after which the paper "became an instrument in the simmering propaganda war with the Soviet Union."

From publisher: "Without doubt the most unique U.S. unit to participate in the Vietnam War,... MACVSOG participated in most of the significant operations of the conflict." Peake, Studies 56.3 (Sep. 2012) and Intelligencer 19.3 (Winter-Spring 2013), notes that the author "doesn’t alibi the failures, but he does explain that they were inherently the result of the political and military strategy imposed on forces in the country." This "is a well-documented, well-told account."

A 361-page book, published in China in 1991 and written by "two of China's top military intelligence specialists," is "believed to be the first comprehensive manual on China's overseas military espionage to have been seen outside the country."

Surveillant 1.1 says that this is an "account of the life of a loyal Agency employee who sees warts but understands and accepts the realities of the business." An entry on the CIA Website ( notes that "[t]he author covers his 28-year career from his recruitment through his training as a CIA operations officer, culminating with his assignment as chief of applicant recruitment in New England."

From advertisement: "In this Second Edition, Tom Gilligan shows how U.S. Congress's success in destroying CIA Covert Action capabilities has made the President and the country reliant exclusively in the 21st century on overt military response to international threats such as Terrorism."

Seamon, Proceedings 124.9 (Sep. 1998), says that the author "does a thorough and convincing job as she explains the basic differences between Japanese and American societies, and how Allied propagandists learned to exploit those differences." For Fedorowich, I&NS 17.1, the author's "lucid examination of US psychological warfare policy in the Southwest Pacific Area ... makes an important contribution to our understanding of a little known but invaluable wartime activity....The focus of Gilmore's analysis is on combat propaganda that was intended primarily to demoralize Japanese soldiers."
