How to persuade citizens to enlist? How to convince them to fight in a war which was, for many, distant in terms of kilometres as well as interest? Modern persuasion techniques, both political and commercial, were used to motivate enlistment and financial support to build a "factory of consensus". The propagandists manipulated the public, guiding their thoughts and actions according to the wishes of those in power and were therefore the forerunners of spin doctors and marketing and advertising professionals. Their posters caught the attention of members of the public with images of children and beautiful women, involving them, nourishing their inner needs for well-being and social prestige, motivating them by showing them testimonials in amusing and adventurous situations, and inspiring their way of perceiving the enemy and the war itself, whose objective was to "make the world safe for democracy". In the discourse of this strategy we find storytelling, humour, satire and fear, but also the language of gestures, recognized as important for the completeness of messages. Were the propagandists "hidden persuaders" who knew the characteristics of the human mind? We do not know for certain. However, their posters have a personal and consistent motivation which this book intends to demonstrate.

This book aims to develop a sophisticated understanding of propaganda. It begins with a brief history of early Western propaganda, including Ancient Greek classical theories of rhetoric and the art of persuasion, and traces its development through the Christian era, the rise of the nation-state, World War I, Nazism, and Communism. The core of the book examines the ethical implications of various forms of persuasion, not only hate propaganda but also insidious elements of more generally acceptable communication such as advertising, public relations, and government information, setting these in the context of freedom of expression. Propaganda and the Ethics of Persuasion examines the art of persuasion but it also hopes to establish a "self-defense" resistance to propaganda. As Jacques Ellul warned in 1980, any new technology enters into an already existing class system and can be expected to develop in a way favourable to the dominant interests of that system. The merger of AOL and Time-Warner confirms the likelihood of corporate interests dominating the future of the Internet, but the Internet has also opened up new possibilities for a politically effective counter-culture, as was demonstrated at the meeting of the World Trade Organization in Seattle in late 1999 and numerous similar gatherings since.

Aus kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Perspektive beleuchtet Steffen Krügers Werkbiografie Ernst Kris' Interesse an Fragen der Propaganda und Persuasion. Ernst Kris (1900-1957) war Wissenschaftler in drei Disziplinen: Kunstgeschichte, Psychoanalyse und Kommunikationsforschung. Seine Beiträge der 1930er-Jahre zur Künstleranekdotik, zur Schaffenspsychologie und besonders zur Karikatur, in denen er die psychoanalytische Theorie auf kunsthistorische Probleme anwandte, gelten als herausragende Pionierarbeiten in den Grenzgebieten beider Fächer. Nachdem die Annektierung Österreichs Kris ins englische Exil gezwungen hatte, bot er sich dort als Propagandaanalytiker für den Abwehrkampf gegen das NS-Regime an. Hier erfuhren seine theoretischen Arbeiten eine eigentümliche Fortsetzung.
