Psychological Warfare, by Paul M. A. Linebarger (1913 - 1966)

Volunteers outside the USA: Paul M. A. Linebarger died in 1966. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 50 years; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
Psychological warfare and propaganda have been used extensively in warfare since the earliest times. This book explores the functions, limitations, types, and history of psychological warfare through 1953. It was written by Paul Myron Anthony Linebarger, a US Army officer, a noted East Asia scholar, and an expert in psychological warfare, also known by the pseudonym Cordwainer Smith as a science fiction author. Linebarger had extensive experience with the practice and implementation of psychological warfare techniques in the field through his work with the Office of War Information, the Operation Planning and Intelligence Board, and the CIA.

The text contains many pictured examples of propaganda. The listener is encouraged to view them. (Summary by Karlgermain and TriciaG)

LibriVox recording settings: mono (1 channel), 44100 Hz sample rate, 128 kbps constant bit rate MP3. See the Tech Specs

Intro to recording:
Leave 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning.

Say:
"Section # of Psychological Warfare. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org." [Optional: "Read by your name."] "Psychological Warfare, by Paul M. A. Linebarger. Section Title as written in the Magic Window."
NOTE on figure captions: I'm leaving it to the reader if they think the figure captions are interesting enough for a listener to hear. If you include them, if they're directly mentioned in the text, add the caption at that point; if they're not referred to in the text, please place all figure captions at the end of your section. Use the wording: "Figure ##. [caption text.] End of Figure ##." If there is more than one in a row: "Figure ##. [caption text.] Figure ##. [caption text].... End of figures ##-##." Word counts include the figure captions.

NOTE on footnotes:
Most of them are bibliographical and thus may be omitted. I'll leave it to the reader if the others are interested in enough for the listener to hear. Word counts do not include footnotes.

Say:
"End of section #." [Optional, and if not stated in the intro: "Read by your name, city, date."]
If you are recording the final section of the book, add:

Good evening,

I would like to record the Ch 1a: Historic Examples of Psychological Warfare, Part 1, if possible. It would be my first time, but I have seen that many sections are available for this book.

Thank you! :9:

Sure thing!

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname or forum name, some their real name) and a link to a personal web site or blog, if you have one. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, enemies, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)

I think I'd say Denisa Valeanu. I just used what is familiar to me when using nicknames :D . I even tried to change that after I created the account, but I couldn't do it in the settings section.

P.S.

Also, how can I check the copyright for this book in UK? I had a look on Google, but I could not find something helpful. Thank you

The UK has copyright of Life+70, so anything by an author who died in 1951 or later is still under copyright for the UK. Therefore, this is still copyrighted in the UK.

I take it, you're in the UK? If so, unfortunately, you shouldn't record this project.
