Abstract:

The problems of the wartime content analysts in predicting the initiatives of an opponent through analysis of his propaganda is described. It is selected for discussion here for two reasons first, the methodological approach to this problem went through an interesting development in the course of the war second, in addition to the obvious practical interest of this problem at the time, it has a certain theoretical interest as well, since it bears upon the general question of the relationship of communication and action in the relations between nations.
