Mark U. Printing, Propaganda and Martin Luther. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995. It has been a long wait for readers since Edwards's last book, and those who remember the readability and subtle arguments of his earlier works will not be disappointed.

Mark Edwards's pioneering work on the Reformation as a "print event" traces how Martin Luther, the first Protestant, became the central figure in the West's first media campaign.

Preferred Citation: Edwards, Mark . Berkeley: University of California Press, c. org/ark:/13030/ft3q2nb278/. Mark U. University of california press. Berkeley · Los Angeles · Oxford. This is also a book about propaganda in that it is a study of persuasive literature that attempted to redefine a major institution in its social world: the Christian church and its beliefs. I argue that the medium of printing was used for the first time in Western history to channel a "mass" movement to affect change concerning this institution.

Sorry I bought it. I read Sapiens and I liked some of his ideas. Too much repetition from Sapiens in this one.
