About this book

Virtually every government communication in a modern democracy is formulated and evaluated in the context of spin. Based on original, archival research, this book explodes the notion that information management is a recent phenomenon.

Reviews

'Moore successfully interweaves context and human action, illuminating both the circumstances in which a continuous government management of information could emerge, and the human choices and lobbyings which caused it to do so... Moore has with great clarity and thoroughness charted one important moment in the accommodation of British political parties to the practice of high minded deviousness that Max Webber called the pact with the devil. - Rodney Barker, Archives: The journal of the British Records Association
