Ive just finished reading Weapons of Mass Deception, kindly bought for me off the wish list by Sarah from Seattle.

It's a thought-provoking and yet very readable book, analysing the PR techniques used by the Bush administration to build and bolster support for the war in Iraq.

It reads like a first draft and will no doubt be superceded by more considered and comprehensive books on the propaganda war. Even so, it's well, well worth a look -- if you enjoy the work of people like Michael Moore, Greg Palast and their ilk you'll find it fascinating.

The authors are behind the Center for Media and Democracy and their website is also worth exploring.
