Product Description

Using newly declassified CIA and US Government documents Jon Elliston exposes a 40-year campaign by Washington to use psychological warfare and propaganda to destabilize Cuba and undermine its revolution. The Cuban people have been the target for one of the largest psychological warfare campaigns ever waged by one country against another. This book details the US "psywar" efforts, overt and covert, which have included rumor campaigns, posters, newspapers, books, comics, newsreels, leaflet drops, and radio and TV broadcasts from airplanes, blimps, boats, submarines, secluded islands and the US mainland. As a comprehensive record of the political, legal and strategic aspects of this four-decade long, multi-million dollar propaganda barrage, the book will serve as a valuable case study and reference for teachers and students of political science, Cold War history, media studies and international communication. Hundreds of pages of previously secret documents are included in this unique and stunning contribution to the literature on US foreign policy and anti-Castro covert operations. Newly classified CIA and US government documents are reproduced here for the first time, exposing a 40-year campaign to use psychological warfare and propaganda to destabilize Cuba and undermine its revolution. A gripping and truly astonishing read.
