Fascinating History Heidi Tworek
To control information is to control the world. This innovative history reveals how, across two devastating wars, Germany attempted to build a powerful communication empireand how the Nazis manipulated the news to rise to dominance in Europe and further their global agenda.

Information warfare may seem like a new feature of our contemporary digital world. But it was just as crucial a century ago, when the great powers competed to control and expand their empires. Tworek reveals how for nearly fifty years, across three different political regimes, Germany tried to control world communicationsand nearly succeeded. Communications networks became a crucial battleground for interwar domestic democracy and international influence everywhere from Latin America to East Asia. The Nazi mastery of global propaganda by the 1930s was built on decades of Germanys obsession with the news.

News from Germany is not a story about Germany alone. It reveals how news became a form of international power and how communications changed the course of history.

HEIDI J. S. TWOREK is Assistant Professor of History at UBC and a non-resident fellow at both the German Marshall Fund of the US and the Canadian Global Affairs Institute and is Project Coordinator of the United Nations History Project.
