Selling war : the British propaganda campaign against American "neutrality" in World War II by Nicholas John Cull( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British propaganda brought America to the brink of war, and left it to the Japanese and Hitler to finish the job." So concludes Nicholas Cull in this absorbing study of how the United States was transformed from isolation to belligerence in the years before the attack on Pearl Harbor. From the moment it realized that all was lost without American aid, the British Government employed a host of persuasive tactics to draw the U.S. to its rescue. With the help of talents as varied as those of matinee idol Leslie Howard, Oxford philosopher Isaiah Berlin and society photographer Cecil Beaton, no section of America remained untouched and no methodfrom Secret Service intrigue to the publication of horrifying pictures of Nazi atrocities - remained untried. The British sought and won the support of key journalists and broadcasters, including Edward R. Murrow, Dorothy Thompson, and Walter Winchell: Hollywood film makers also played a willing part. Cull details these and other propaganda activities, covering the entire range of the British effort. A fascinating story of how a foreign country promoted America's involvement in its greatest war, Selling War will appeal to all those interested in the modern cultural and political history of Britain and the United States
The Cold War and the United States Information Agency : American propaganda and public diplomacy, 1945-1989 by Nicholas John Cull( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published at a time when the U.S. government's public diplomacy is in crisis, this book provides an exhaustive account of how it used to be done. The United States Information Agency was created, in 1953, to "tell America's story to the world" and, by engaging with the world through international information, broadcasting, culture, and exchange programs, became an essential element of American foreign policy during the Cold War. Based on newly declassified archives and more than 100 interviews with veterans of public diplomacy, from the Truman administration to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Nicholas J. Cull relates both the achievements and the endemic flaws of American public diplomacy in this period."--From publisher description

Projecting tomorrow : science fiction and popular cinema by James Chapman( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cinema and science fiction were made for each other. The science fiction genre has produced some of the most extraordinary films ever made, yet science fiction cinema is about more than just special effects. It has also provided a vehicle for filmmakers and writers to comment on their own societies and cultures. This new exploration of the genre examines landmark science fiction films from the 1930s to the present. They include genre classics such as 'Things to Come', 'Forbidden Planet' and '2001: A Space Odyssey' alongside modern blockbusters 'Star Wars' and 'Avatar'. Chapman and Cull consider both screen originals and adaptations of the work of major science fiction authors. They also range widely across the genre from pulp adventure and space opera to political allegory and speculative documentary - there is even a science fiction musical
Projecting empire : imperialism and popular cinema by James Chapman( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular cinema is saturated with images and narratives of empire. With Projecting Empire, Chapman and Cull have written the first major study of imperialism and cinema for over thirty years. This welcome text maps the history of empire cinema in both Hollywood and Britain through a serious of case studies of popular films including biopics, adventures, literary adaptations, melodramas, comedies and documentaries, from the 1930s and The Four Feathers to the present, with Indiana Jones and Three Kings. The authors consider industry-wide trends and place the films in their wider cultural and historical contexts. Using primary sources that include private papers, they look at the presence of particular auteurs in the cinema of Imperialism, including Korda, Lean, Huston and Attenborough, as well as the actors who brought the stories to life, such as Elizabeth Taylor and George Clooney. At a time when imperialism has a new significance in the world, this book will fulfil the needs of students and interested filmgoers alike

The decline and fall of the United States Information Agency : American public diplomacy, 1989-2001 by Nicholas John Cull( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when issues of international engagement are again at the fore of foreign policy, this book tells the story of how the United States's apparatus for public diplomacy came to be in disarray. Using newly declassified archives and interviews with practitioners, Nicholas J. Cull has pieced together the story of the final decade in the life of the United States Information Agency. It is both a sorry tale of political neglect and missed opportunities and an account of what America's public diplomats were nevertheless able to accomplish. Major episodes include the transition of Eastern Europe to democracy, the role of public diplomacy in the First Gulf War and Kosovo Wars, the US interventions in Somalia and Haiti, and the buildup to the attacks of 9/11"--

U.S. public diplomacy and democratization in Spain : selling democracy?( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the post-war relationship began, Spain was an unlikely candidate for American influence. By the end of the 30s, the Franco dictatorship had adopted Fascist symbols and made common cause with the Axis nations. In 1948, Cold war concerns prompted a slow rapprochement in between Washington and Madrid, leading to the instauration of U.S. military bases in Spanish territory. Both countries had done a political conjuring trick and formalized a marriage of convenience. This volume examines the several US public diplomacy strategies to accomplish an almost impossible mission: to keep a warm relation with a friendly tyrant without drifting apart from Spanish opposition to the dictatorship, and eventually to pave the way for transition to democracy"--
