What is below is a selection of books on my shelf that informed my development of this idea I call "Narrative Warfare". Call it a partial bibliography if you like.
- Alinsky, Saul.Rules For Radicals.
Note: This is the book the lays out the foundation of the current system of Narrative Warfare.
- Bernays, Edward. Propaganda.
Note: Lays out the hows and whys that would lead to systematic narrative implementation.
- Chomsky, Noam and Edward S. Herman. Manufacturing Consent.
Note: Shows how central the Mainstream Media is to the system.
- Perkins, John. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
Note: Shows how the system operates as a public-private partnership to avoid accountability and enhance deniability, as well as shows to what ends the system is actually employed.
- Quigley, Carrol. Tragedy & Hope: A History of the World In Our Time. Note: Shows that the parties for whom the system works are not new.
- Sun Tzu. The Art of War. Note: It's Warfare. Duh. Also, Clausewitz and Machiavelli have works on the matter that should be read.
- Niccolo Machiavelli. The Prince. Note: The system is meant to work for a political potentate, albeit as a class instead of a specific individual, so reading this helps see the whys behind the hows.
