On Political War

By Paul A. Smith, Jr
National Defense University Press, 1990
279 pp.

The author rightly views political competition as one form of conflict between nations. Focusing on the uses of propaganda for political purposes, the reader will acquire a new sense of both its utility and its limitations. What is distinctive and interesting about this book is its historical perspective. The opening chapters deal with antiquity, the Reformation and the Napoleonic era; the closing pages cover the Cold War.
