After seeing Adam Curtis' Century of the Self, in which Edward Bernays plays a central role, my expectation was higher. In essence it's a propaganda book on propaganda, sometimes too obvious, and not divulging too many interesting techniques.

Eighty four years after its initial publication, Bernay's 'Propaganda' continues to illuminate some of the most important aspects of the modern societies we live in. His examples are certainly out-of-date, yet, the principles he keeps of referring to are more relevant than ever. It can be considered in the category of 'The Prince' by Machiavelli; you are going to admire the crystallization of the expression, and you are going to abhor the results at the same time, the results that are brought upon us by the people who understand the principles of 'Propaganda' and apply them to our daily lives ruthlessly.The new introduction by Mark Crispin Miller does not fail to add value and more insight, too. His criticism of Bernays, properly put in historical context, sheds light on some obscure points of the book. Combined with the book, this gives you an astonishing overview of 'manufacturing consent' and the 'illusion of democracy'.
