Founded in 1935, LSU Press quickly established itself as one of the nation’s outstanding scholarly presses and continues to garner national and international accolades, including four Pulitzer Prizes. The Media & Public Affairs Series features books published by LSU Press and the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at the Manship School of Mass Communication. Books in the series explore the complex relationship between knowledge and power in American democracy by examining what citizens and public officials know, where they get their information, how they use that information to act, and the differences that information makes within our government and society. Some recent LSU Press titles include Daisy Petals and Mushroom Clouds: LBJ, Barry Goldwater, and the Ad That Changed American Politics by Robert Mann; Ed Kennedy's War: V-E Day, Censorship, and the Associated Press, edited by Julia Kennedy Cochran; and The Holiday Makers: Magazines, Advertising, and Mass Tourism in Postwar America by Richard K.
