Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A refreshing reading and a solid appraisal of the omnipresent manipulation of information and disinformation during the Second World War in Germany. The quality of interpretation, the attention to detail, and reader-friendly narrative must be mentioned here. All these add substantial value to Kallis's depiction of Nazi wartime propaganda. Kallis has placed the subject of Nazi propaganda in its broader context and has addressed important questions regarding political religions, totalitarianism and fascism. Amongst the new generation of scholars forming in the footsteps of those who, like Roger Griffin, Michael Burleigh, Emilio Gentile, and Walter Adamson, revised the discipline in the 1990s, Kallis is arguably the most prominent. This book certainly substantiates this claim."—Marius Turda, Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions

    Very similar to what Obama and his people are doing today. They coordinate their messages with the media and entertainment world, who in turn persuade people into believing that the administration's radical, left-wing agenda is actually hugely popular. Wake up, America, before it's too late!
