In the wake of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, which was held by many to have been facilitated by propaganda for war, the prohibition of such propaganda in international law received scant attention despite international law being central to the discourse about the war itself. This introductory chapter sets forth the difficulties in defining the term ‘propaganda for war’, outlines the primary propaganda techniques of the past century, and considers the supposed clash between the prohibition and the right to freedom of expression. It also records how international propaganda came of age during the early 20th century, particularly, during and after the First World War before setting out the subsequent Chapter Outlines.
