Psywar on Cuba: The Declassified History of U.S. Anti-Castro Propaganda

by

Psywar on Cuba: The Declassified History of U.S. Anti-Castro Propaganda Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Newly declassified CIA and U.S. Government documents are reproduced here for the first time, exposing a 40-year campaign by Washington to use psychological warfare and propaganda to destabilize Cuba and undermine its revolution.

The Cuban people have been the target for one of the largest psychological warfare campaigns ever waged by one country against another. This book details the U.S. psywar efforts, overt and covert, which have included rumor campaigns, posters, newspapers, books, comics, newsreels, leaflet drops, and radio and TV broadcasts from airplanes, blimps, boats, submarines, secluded islands and the U.S. mainland.

As a comprehensive record of the political, legal and strategic aspects of this four-decade long, multi-million dollar propaganda barrage, the book will serve as a valuable case study and reference for teachers and students of political science, Cold War history, media studies and international communication.

Hundreds of pages of previously secret documents are included in this unique and stunning contribution to the literature on U.S. foreign policy and anti-Castro covert operations.

“An excellent overview of the whole sad story of U.S. efforts to use radio broadcasting and now TV against the Castro government — efforts which are simply part of a deceitful and utterly counterproductive policy,” Wayne S. Smith, former US diplomat in Havana.
