Richard Milton has been a writer and journalist for more than 25 years and is the author of six books. His book Bad Company was chosen by The Sunday Times as its Business Book of the Week. His book Best of Enemies explored the love hate relationship between Britain and Germany and examined the origins of modern propaganda warfare in the First World War.
His latest book, The Ministry of Spin, looks at how sophisticated modern propaganda techniques were developed by Britain’s Ministry Of Information during the Second World War, and how those techniques were introduced to party politics in Britain by the post-war Attlee government of 1945-1951.
The Ministry of Spin will be published in 2015.
