Focusing on the Test Ban and the Nuclear Freeze movements, the author examines the ways in which these two antinuclear political protests raised public awareness, exposed government propaganda, and influenced government policy through the post-World War II years. The movements, generated by the Eisenhower and Kennedy and then Reagan administrations, respectively, received considerable media coverage. Rojecki discusses the evolving relationships of mass media, public opinion, political dissent, and government policy making.
