Come hear an internationally renowned author talk about his new book,
Hearts, Minds, Voices (Oxford UP). In the Cold War, the U.S. and Soviet
Union fought to "win hearts and minds" in a global media war. People
outside Europe and North America caught a propaganda blitz—led by slick
1950s-styled “mad men”—to win their loyalty in a world of racism, poverty,
and empire. But the greatest consequences were led by the Third World.
Newly independent voices in India, Egypt, Ghana, and elsewhere led public
campaigns of their own, creating global visions that still resound today.
