of Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force. The original book
was printed in the American zone of Germany at the end of the Second
World War with a small restricted circulation.
The contributors approach the topic from several different perspectives, including the increasing use of "spin doctors" and the resulting loss of influence of state and national political parties. The book investigates the role of these paid advisers: who they are, what they do and why, and how they feel about their work. The contributors discuss the consultant's relationship with candidates and parties, and analyze the effect of their efforts on election outcome.
