In this revised and expanded second edition, Nancy Snow, who spent two years inside America's propaganda machine - the US Information Agency - gives the first ex-insider's account of the operation, explaining how the US government attempts to influence foreign opinion by exporting US culture and pro-US propaganda throughout the world. Snow follows the evolution of US propaganda through the demise of the USIA in 1999, up to the new, post-September 11 propaganda mission spurned to counter rampant anti-Americanism world-wide.
