The following e-mail announcement was sent by John Childs to the Book Group mailing list:
Book Group reminder.
Our selection for the month April is "Propaganda" by Edward Bernays. Following is a brief description from Amazon.com. (Remember that if you purchase your copy of the book from them using our links here then SHL gets a portion of the purchase price.)
“Bernays' honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies." -- Noam Chomsky
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country." - Edward Bernays, Propaganda
The SHL Book Group will review Propaganda on the 4th Sunday, April 27th at our usual time and location, the Barnes and Noble on Sam Rittenberg Blvd between the hours of 4 and 5:30. Keep in mind we will go out to socialize at a local restaurant after the meeting so bring your dinning ideas in the West Ashley area.
John and Barbara Childs
