KIRKUS REVIEW

A variety of experts have contributed to this volume dealing with the problems of psychological warfare, men who were actively engaged in some phase or other for either American or British armies against Germany and Japan, psychologists, social scientists, academic and practical. Some of the contributions were prepared specifically for this volume; some chapters are recently declassified secret war documents, some chapters are drawn from current periodicals. The purpose is twofold:- to bring together various elements for appraisal and consideration from the wisdom of hindsight; to weigh the value of studies with a view to improving the level of psychological warfare and propaganda war and crisis, to evaluate the effectiveness of methods used in the past with a view of eliminating waste effort, intensifying productive effort. Some of the findings are couraging; the whole survey should prove valuable to the policy makers, and of some interest to the average citizen aware of the challenge in today's inadequacies.
