This Is Not Propaganda: Adventures in the War Against Reality

by Peter Pomerantsev - £9.99  Faber & Faber (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571338641 | ISBN 10: 057133864x

When information is a weapon, everyone is at war. We live in a world of influence operations run amok, a world of dark ads, psy-ops, hacks, bots, soft facts, ISIS, Putin, trolls, Trump. We've lost not only our sense of peace and democracy - but our sense of what those words even mean.
 
As Peter Pomerantsev seeks to make sense of the disinformation age, he meets Twitter revolutionaries and pop-up populists, 'behavioural change' salesmen, Jihadi fan-boys, Identitarians, truth cops, and much more. Forty years after his dissident parents were pursued by the KGB, he finds the Kremlin re-emerging as a great propaganda power. His research takes him back to Russia - but the answers he finds there are surprising.

"The world's most powerful people are lying like never before, and no one understands the art of their lies like Peter Pomerantsev."
(Oliver Bullough)
