Psychological Operations FM 33-1

The expansion module is also very enlightening:

Not reading per se, but a really exceptional documentary on the subject:

Even better: John Pilger's recent documentary, The War You Don't See:

Just went and picked up my library requests of Mirage Men & Blank Spots On The Map today based on this thread and a few others.

I hadn't really been thinking about them since putting in the request last month; today my mind had been on watching Repo Man for the first time based on Jeff & others' recommendations. Wow, I had no idea what it was about! Mirage Men is so appropriate to have on hand.

Funnily enough, I just found the alien stuff distracting from the awesome LA setting & characters.

A couple from the daddy of modern low-intensity warfare, General Sir Frank Edward Kitson, inventor of the term psuedo-operations (or, in our tongue, false flag operations):

Gangs and Counter-gangs (1960), Barrie and Rockliff

Low Intensity Operations: Subversion, Insurgency and Peacekeeping (1971), Faber and Faber - reprint 1991

You get some nutrition from UK psyops mogul, Philip M. Taylor. Definitely read all you can.
But it is sanitized.
A useful Psyops 101 not to be taken as definitive.

BUT. Note that his book are all on military psyops.
AND. He just happens to throw in a book on Steven Spielberg.

A *wink wink* to the savvy pointing at the US Pentagon lead sled-dog for post-Vietnam psyops for the kidz.
CIA runs mainstream media since WWII:
news rooms, movies/TV, publishing
...
Disney is CIA for kidz!
