From Library Journal:

A detailed, scholarly, easy-to-read analysis of the changing approaches to persuasion used by the wartime Voice of America (VOA) as World War II progressed. Shulman explains the problems in talking both to receptive Europeans and to questioning members of Congress. Tracing the late-war VOA strategy, she provides an overabundance of detail from archives and interviews to foster veracity, and a concentration on key individuals' actions and their reasons to foster interest. The material on policy will serve serious political scientists. The presentation on persuasion theory in formation will captivate communication scholars, as will the explanation of the change from radio drama to detached news reporting techniques. The author is the daughter of Lou Cowan, a key figure in the VOA gestation and formative years. Recommended.
