Publisher's Summary

When information is a weapon, everyone is at war.  

We live in a world of influence operations run amok, a world of dark ads, psy-ops, hacks, bots, soft facts, ISIS, Putin, trolls, Trump. We've lost not only our sense of peace and democracy - but our sense of what those words even mean. 

As Peter Pomerantsev seeks to make sense of the disinformation age, he meets Twitter revolutionaries and pop-up populists, 'behavioural change' salesmen, Jihadi fan-boys, Identitarians, truth cops and much more.

Forty years after his dissident parents were pursued by the KGB, he finds the Kremlin re-emerging as a great propaganda power. His research takes him back to Russia - but the answers he finds there are surprising. Part reportage, part intellectual adventure, This is Not Propaganda is a Pynchon-like exploration of how we can reimagine our politics and ourselves in a time where truth has been turned topsy-turvy.

Lots of potential but went nowhere

I was full of enthusiasm to get into this one. The synopsis seemed great. However, the thread went all over the place, with no great winning point.
There were a few glimpses of interesting stuff but generally just kept repeating similar examples.
I did learn a few bits.
Mainly I was disappointed.

Rambling and incoherent critique

Lots of portentuous dooming about the dreadful age of troll farms, bot armies, ~populism~ that has dawned upon us, very little that is substantive or new or detailed. I wouldn't bother

Insightful and thought-provoking

Well written, well narrated and scary stuff. A bleak outlook but essential reading for this day and age
