Posters, Propaganda, and Persuasion in Election Campaigns Around the World and Through History
How effective are election campaign posters? Providing a unique political history, this book traces the impact that these posters - as well as broadsides, banners, and billboards - have had around the world over the last two centuries. It focuses on the use of this campaign material in the United States, as well as in France, Great Britain, Germany, South Africa, Japan, Mexico, and many other countries.
The book examines how posters evolved and discusses their changing role in the twentieth century and thereafter; how technology, education, legislation, artistic movements, advertising, and political systems effected changes in election posters and other campaign media, and how they were employed around the world.
This comprehensive and original overview of this campaign material includes the first extensive review of the research literature on the topic. "Posters, Propaganda, and Persuasion" will be useful to scholars and students interested in communications, politics, history, advertising and marketing, art history, and graphic design.
