Book Description:

Think of the raising of the Stars and Stripes at Iwo Jima, the Tricolore that proclaimed the French Revolution, the Euro as the standard of a united Europe. Symbols matter. They can rally a people, proclaim values—or rank as a propagandist's most valuable tool.

About the Author:

James Minahan has written a number of reference books on international statehood and identity, including Greenwood's Encyclopedia of the Stateless Nations, One Europe, Many Nations, and Miniature Empires.
