Abstract

It may not immediately be obvious why propaganda should feature at all in a collection about 'beautiful things' in popular culture. Unlike most of the other items selected for inclusion in the book, propaganda is typically not chosen or purchased by its consumers; rather it is foisted upon them. Propaganda is hardly 'in' popular culture; or if so it's like a virus – something that infests an environment for its own purposes, which may be harmful to the host organism. And no-one, at least those of us drilled in modern Western democratic-process ideologies, is supposed to like propaganda.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
