0.00 CHF tax incl.

Examing emblems of propaganda from Renaissance texts and images to 20th and 21st century mass media and slogans related to political ideologies, this collection brings together innovative interdisciplinary studies by scholars from Europe and North America. Providing new dimensions to the scholarly discussion on the interplay between aesthetic forms and persuasion, the essays demonstrate how propaganda, the dissemination or promoting of an idea or practice, promulgates zealously knowledge and principles, often transculturally and across generations. Applying methodologies such as comparative analysis, semiotics, rhetorical criticism, reception theory, and visual anthropology, The Art of Persuasion: Emblems and Propaganda will be of interest to students and scholars of history, art history, the history of the book, political thought, communication, the art of war, and religion.
