The Third Reich : politics and propaganda by David Welch( Book )

47 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The appeal of the Nazi party is one of the most closely studied issues in European history. Its remarkable success has often been attributed to a highly successful propaganda machine: the parades, uniforms, bands and marches which so excited the German public. Here, Professor Welch contends that although propaganda played an important part in mobilising support for the Nazis, propaganda alone could not have sustained the Nazi party and its ideology over such a long period of time. His argument stems from a belief that in order to be successful, propaganda must preach to the partially converted." "The book arrives at a number of controversial conclusions about the nature of Nazi propaganda and its effectiveness - as well as its limitations. Writers and historians on the subject have generally assumed that Nazi propagandists invariably achieved their goals. By examining Nazi propaganda in the light of wider interpretative questions about the Third Reich, such as the restructuring of the media, the use of terror, the need for racial purity and Hitler's 'charismatic' leadership, Welch challenges these assumptions and argues that in many ways Goebbels' propaganda machine was a failure. He assesses both the theory and practice of Nazi propaganda, as well as the reactions of the German public to the major themes and campaigns conducted by the State in peacetime and at war and questions whether, behind the facade of national unity there was dissent: and, if so, was it rendered so ineffective by terror alone? There is also a document section which evaluates the speeches of Adolf Hitler and Josef Goebbels, and the laws that shaped the mass-media in the Third Reich." "The Third Reich explains the popularity of National Socialism by examining the roles of consent and coercion in sustaining the regime. It will be essential reading for students of European history."--Jacket
Germany and propaganda in World War I : pacifism, mobilization and total war by David Welch( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adolf Hitler, writing in Mein Kampf, was scathing in his condemnation of German propaganda in World War I, declaring that Germany failed to recognise that the mobilization of public opinion was a weapon of the first order. This, despite the fact that propaganda had been regarded by the German leadership, arguably for the first time, as an intrinsic part of the war effort. In this book, David Welch fully examines German society - politics, propaganda, public opinion and total war - in the Great War. Drawing on a wide range of sources - posters, newspapers, journals, film, Parliamentary debates, police and military reports and private papers - he argues that the moral collapse of Germany was due less to the failure to disseminate propaganda than to the inability of the military authorities and the Kaiser to reinforce this propaganda, and to acknowledge the importance of public opinion in forging an effective link between leadership and the people."-- Publisher's description

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Welch has written the first book to fully examine German society - politics, propaganda, public opinion, and total war - in the Great War. Drawing on a wide range of sources - from posters, newspapers, journals, film, parliamentary debates, police and military reports, and private papers - Welch argues that the moral collapse of Germany was due less to the failure to disseminate propaganda than to the inability of the military authorities and the Kaiser to reinforce this propaganda, and to acknowledge the importance of public opinion in forging an effective link between leadership and the people."--Jacket

Propaganda, power and persuasion : from World War I to Wikileaks by David Welch( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book provides compelling evidence of how the study and practice of propaganda today is shaped by its history.

If this happens, the war propagandists will be back in business again.'
Propaganda : power and persuasion by David Welch( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Propaganda is all around us, used to promote a sense of common cause and belonging, change behaviour or influence ideas, as well as to mislead, deceive, even destroy. Perhaps the greatest and most sophisticated exponent of propaganda is the modern state. Using universal themes of conflict, public education, protest and leadership, this book, which accompanies a major new exhibition at the British Library, takes a close look at the range of propaganda used by different states - and their opponents. Over the last 100 years, increased literacy, multiplying media formats, methodologies and competing messengers have required ever greater effort to persuade and influence citizens, and the book's primary focus is the 20th and 21st centuries, taking a worldwide view
A cultural history of firearms in the age of empire by Karen Jones( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Firearms have been studied by imperial historians mainly as means of human destruction and material production. Yet, as suggested by constructivist approaches to the history of technology, firearms have always been invested with a whole array of additional social meanings. By placing these latter at the centre of analysis, the essays presented in Guns and Identity extend the study of guns beyond the confines of military history and the examination of their impact on specific colonial encounters. By bringing cultural perspectives to bear on the subject, the contributors explore the densely interwoven relationships between firearms and broad processes of social change. In so doing, they contribute to a fuller understanding of some of the most significant consequences of British and American imperial expansion. Not the least original feature of the book is its global frame of reference. By bringing together historians of different periods and regions, Guns and Identity overcomes traditional compartmentalisations of historical knowledge and encourages the drawing of novel and illuminating comparisons across time and space

Persuading the people : British propaganda in World War II by David Welch( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Second World War, the UK government created the Central Office of Information to act as the country's marketing and communications agency. In these desperate times, the Office produced steady streams of propaganda for the home front, for the colonies and for dissemination through occupied countries. In addition to patriotic material encouraging Britons to maintain a stiff upper lip, thousands of postcards, leaflets, posters, booklets and other promotional materials were dropped from aircraft over occupied countries in World War II. In 2000, the master set of copies was deposited with the British Library, making an enormous collection of great social and historical significance available to the public for the first time. In this book, the leading historian of propaganda presents the best examples from the wartime information machine and reveals the history behind this key government body

Propaganda, power and persuasion : from World War I to Wikileaks by David Welch( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and Korean and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Philip Taylor has written, 'The challenge (of the modern information age) is to ensure that no single propaganda source gains monopoly over the information and images that shape our thoughts. If this happens, the war propagandists will be back in business again.' Propaganda came of age in the Twentieth Century. The development of mass- and multi-media offered a fertile ground for propaganda while global conflict provided the impetus needed for its growth. Propaganda has however become a portmanteau word, which can be interpreted in a number of different ways. What are the characteristic features of propaganda, and how can it be defined? This book traces the development of techniques of 'opinion management' from World War I to the war in Afghanistan. It reveals how state leaders and spin-doctors operating at the behest of the state, sought to shape popular attitudes - at home and overseas - endeavouring to harness new media with the objective of winning hearts and minds. In doing so, it provides compelling evidence of how the study and practice of propaganda today is shaped by its history
