Communist propaganda continues to saturate the air waves on an ever-increasing scale. Attempts to counteract the possible effects of this effort can be greatly aided by knowledge of what is being said by Soviet propagandists and, wherever possible, how and why these things are being said. A content analysis of communist broadcasts to Italy provides a number of interesting insights into the propaganda themes, appeals, devices, and objectives that characterize a major aspect of the Soviet Union's effort to deter democratic consolidation and to set the nations of the free world against themselves.
