This book analyzes a famous photograph that was taken during World War II of four American soldiers raising the flag on Iwo Jima and a 21st-century digitized image. This digital image replaces the flag with an oil rig and creates one of the best images in regards to human rights and protecting against the war. This artwork symbolized the defeat of Germany and serves a purpose when being recreated to show the state of the war we have been in since the beginning of the 21st century: the war of oil.

Covering the period from 1936 to 1953, Empire of Ideas reveals how and why image first became a component of foreign policy, prompting policymakers to embrace such techniques as propaganda, educational exchanges, cultural exhibits, overseas libraries, and domestic public relations. Drawing upon exhaustive research in official government records and the private papers of top officials in the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, including newly declassified material, Justin Hart takes the listener back to the dawn of what Time-Life publisher Henry Luce would famously call the ´´American century,´´ when U.S. policymakers first began to think of the nation´s image as a foreign policy issue. Beginning with the Buenos Aires Conference in 1936 - which grew out of FDR´s Good Neighbor Policy toward Latin America - Hart traces the dramatic growth of public diplomacy in the war years and beyond. The book describes how the State Department established the position of Assistant Secretary of State for Public and Cultural Affairs in 1944, with Archibald MacLeish - the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Librarian of Congress - the first to fill the post. Hart shows that the ideas of MacLeish became central to the evolution of public diplomacy, and his influence would be felt long after his tenure in government service ended. The book examines a wide variety of propaganda programs, including the Voice of America, and concludes with the creation of the United States Information Agency in 1953, bringing an end to the first phase of U. S. public diplomacy. Empire of Ideas remains highly relevant today, when U. S. officials have launched full-scale propaganda to combat negative perceptions in the Arab world and elsewhere. Hart´s study illuminates the similar efforts of a previous generation of policymakers, explaining why our ability to shape our image is, in the end, quite limited. 1. Language: English.

Ronald Reagan carried a conservative vision of America to the White House, where his administration gave it life. Peggy Noonan followed Reagan to Washington as his speechwriter-and gave his vision voice. As speech writer for George Bush during his Presidential campaign, Noonan dispelled her candidate´s ´´wimpy´´ image and replaced it with one of quiet strength by coining such eloquent phrases as ´´a thousand points of light´´ and ´´a kinder, gentler nation.´´ In the same vivid, eloquent style that earned Ronald Reagan the designation ´´the Great Communicator,´´ Peggy Noonan delivers a candid portrait of the Reagan White House in this stylish, sensitive memoir that pursues the question, ´´Who´s running things here anyway?´´ 1.

In compelling detail two leading U.S. civil rights attorneys recount the extraordinary life and deliberate killing of the world´s most storied revolutionary: Ernesto Che Guevara. Michael Ratner and Michael Steven Smith survey the extraordinary trajectory of Che´s career, from an early politicization recounted in the Motorcycle Diaries, through meetings with his compaero Fidel Castro in Mexico, his vital role in the Cuban revolution, and his expeditions abroad to Africa and Latin America. But their focus is on Che´s final days in Bolivia where, after months of struggle to spread the revolution begun in Havana, Che is wounded, captured and, soon after, executed. Bound and helpless, Che´s last words to his killer, a soldier in the Bolivian Army, are ´´Remember, you are killing a man.´´ Referencing internal U.S. government documentation, much of it never before published, Ratner and Smith bring their forensic skills as attorneys to analyze the evidence and present an irrefutable case that the CIA not only knew of and approved the execution, but was instrumental in making it happen. Cables from the agency disavowing any U.S. role in the murder were merely attempts to provide plausible deniability for the Johnson administration. The spirit of Che Guevara, as an icon and an inspiration, is as vibrant today as it ever was. News photographs of democracy protestors in the Middle East carrying his image have circulated the world in recent months. For anyone drawn to his remarkable life and its violent, unlawful end, Who Killed Che? will engage, anger, and educate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Free.
