(p.1) Introduction
Propaganda, Censorship and Irish Neutrality in the Second World War

Robert Cole

Edinburgh University Press

A ‘war of words’ ensued, pitting first Britain and then the United States against Eire and anti-British Irish Americans. This ‘war of words’ over Eire neutrality, the subject of this study, has not been a major theme in historical studies of ‘the Emergency’, as the war period was known in Eire. The study focuses on Britain, the United States and Eire, but does not ignore the propaganda campaigns aimed at Eire by Axis states, and by the Eire government itself. It hopes to contribute to an ever-widening understanding of the important and interactive role played by propaganda and censorship in an age of mass communications.

Keywords:   war of words, United States, Britain, Eire neutrality, Emergency, propaganda, censorship, mass communications
