Summary
  • "This revelatory and dramatic history of disinformation traces the rise of secret organized deception operations from the interwar period to contemporary internet troll farms"--
  • We live in the age of disinformation. More than four months before the 2016 election, Rid warned that Russian military intelligence was attempting to disrupt the democratic process. Here he tells the story of modern disinformation, beginning with the post-Russian Revolution clash between communism and capitalism, which would come to define the Cold War. He exposes the disturbing yet colorful history of professional, organized lying, revealing for the first time some of the century's most significant operations-- many of them nearly beyond belief. Rid also sheds new light on the 2016 election, especially the role of the infamous 'troll farm' in St. Petersburg. -- adapted from jacket
