Introduction: Full-Spectrum Propaganda

Introduction: Full-Spectrum Propaganda

Appraising the “IS Moment” in Propaganda History

(p.1) Introduction: Full-Spectrum Propaganda
ISIS Propaganda

Stephane J. Baele

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter exposes the general framework uniting the various contributions to the volume, conceptualizing the “Islamic State (IS) moment” between innovation and continuity in the history of propaganda. Specifically, it claims that the unprecedented character of IS’s propaganda enterprise stands neither in the originality of the themes it promotes nor in the formats it uses, but rather in its project of constituting the first sustained and largely successful attempt from a terror group to build a “full-spectrum propaganda.” This chapter also clarifies the aims and goals of the book, identifies its contribution to the field, and presents its logic of progression.

Keywords:   Islamic State propaganda, propaganda, terrorism, full-spectrum propaganda, Jacques Ellul
