Review: A Century of Media, A Century of War

Media Mouse has posted a review of Robin Anderson’s A Century of Media, A Century of War in the book reviews section of the site. Anderson’s book examines the close relationship that the media system in the United States has had with war. Anderson demonstrates that this relationship formed during World War I with the Creel Commission and its use of public relations to manufacture support for the war. Anderson explains to the reader that following World War I, the US government continued to create media to support its foreign policy, establishing “the Grand Narrative” of the United States miltary being used for “good” against the “bad” in the world.
