A Propaganda System: How Canada’s Government, Corporations, Media and Academia Sell War and Exploitation.
Book Launch by the renowned author Yves Engler
This Thursday at 5:30 pm in MacKinnon 227, at the University of Guelph
“The book traces the long history of government information control during war, including formal censorship, as well as extreme media bias on topics ranging from Haiti to Palestine, investment agreements to the mining industry. The book also details the corporate elite’s funding for university programs and think tanks”
“The latest book from renowned author Yves Engler reveals why most Canadians believe their country is a force for good in the world, despite a long history of supporting empire, racism and exploitation”
“Yves became a foreign-policy expert by working as a night doorman in Montreal…He’s in the mould of I. F. Stone, who wasted no time with politicians, who all have an agenda, but went instead straight to the public record”.
“Truth is often a casualty in politics. Thankfully, there’s Yves Engler—Canada’s version of Noam Chomsky—to set the record straight when political spin morphs into historical fact”
