CHAPTER TWO: Propaganda in the Middle East

BEFORE DISCUSSING A SUBJECT as controversial as propaganda, it might be useful to begin with a few definitions and, more specifically, with a few words about propaganda as such. This is a highly sensitive subject, and for many even the word propaganda has derogatory implications. But it was not always so. The word, as first used by those who coined the term and devised the procedures that it designated, had a very positive connotation.
