Propaganda

Edward Bernays

“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 A seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays (1891–1995), pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed “engineering of consent.” During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would “Make the World Safe for Democracy.” The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon. Bernays applied the techniques he had learned in the CPI and, incorporating some of the ideas of Walter Lipmann, became an outspoken proponent of propaganda as a tool for democratic and corporate manipulation of the population. His 1928 bombshell Propaganda lays out his eerily prescient vision for using propaganda to regiment the collective mind in a variety of areas, including government, politics, art, science and education. To read this book today is to frightfully comprehend what our contemporary institutions of government and business have become in regards to organized manipulation of the masses. This is the first reprint of Propaganda in over 30 years and features an introduction by Mark Crispin Miller, author of The Bush Dyslexicon: Observations on a National Disorder .

Color For Profit

Louis Cheskin

Published in 1951, Louis Cheskin's groundbreaking Color For Profit initiated a scientific approach to color and design. Cheskin's philosophy rotated around three core concepts: good taste has little to do with how well a design sells; asking customers what they think of a package design is not a useful way to measure effectiveness; and colors have symbolic meanings.Among some of Cheskin's noteworthy accomplishments were: The creation of the Gerber Baby Changing the color of margarine from white to yellow The development of the Marlboro Man and Marlboro packaging from what was previously considered a «women's» cigarette Uncovering the preference of American consumers for circles over triangles on packaging Predicting the flop of the Edsel automobile The market research underlying the introduction of the Ford Mustang and the Lincoln Continental

The Exhibitionist

Steve Reeder

A practical and inspiring guide to executing effective trade shows that attract and convert high quality leads into profitable sales. Organisations regularly waste vast amounts of money, time and effort attending the wrong shows, planning them poorly and failing to follow up, leading to an almost zero return on investment. The Exhibitionist gives exhibitors an end-to-end guide covering all aspects of best-practice trade show execution including budgeting, researching the right show, selecting and training staff and post show contact strategy amongst many other elements, to build the confidence and skills required for delivering more effective events. Through a series of three modules – planning, implementation and evaluation – The Exhibitionist guides readers through the linear process of delivering a commercially measurable trade show. This is a practical journey which alongside the theory uses case studies and examples to bring the key points to life.  Rather than just giving readers the answer, The Exhibitionist provides the stimulus and inspiration to arrive at the right decisions for each organisation’s specific trade show needs. The Exhibitionist directs you through the minimum requirements to deliver an effective trade show but also discuss more advanced elements such as media management, speaker platforms and digital engagement that will enhance the basic delivery for more experienced exhibitors
