The PD Networks Quiz Part 2

February 14, 2013

It’s one of my basic assumptions about public diplomacy in all its variations that it involves multiple agencies and those agencies, if not actively hostile to each other, probably don’t work together too well.  Hence when I read this over breakfast I was shocked.

‘From an analysis of available ****** sources, the whole organization seems to have been efficiently run; propaganda thus appears as the product of a well oiled machine, a network of co-ordinated and skilfully linked governmental departments.’

The question is which country are we talking about during the second half of the 1930s?
Given that we know that it couldn’t possibly be Britain, France or Germany  was it

A. Switzerland

B. Italy

C. Japan

D. Hungary

Answer after the fold

The quote is from

Williams, M.A. (2012) Mussolini’s propaganda abroad : subversion in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, 1935-1940. London: Routledge. p. 3
Yup it’s Italy.  Didn’t see that coming did you?
