    Try- "Manufacturing Consent: the Political Economy of the Mass Media" by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky.

    It's a very good book.

    Hitler: Mein Kampf is worth a read too. Ignore the 'anti Jew' diatribe, and you will find several useful pointers for the would be Demagogue.

    Hasn't Taksin written a book or two as well? "Mein kampf" is also an interesting read on the subject, if you can get hold of a copy.

    Indy Media is a good place to look for news if you can't handle the mainstream press.Most of the news on this site you would never see in the British press.

    Crowds and Power by Elias Canetti.

    Book Description

    How do crowds work? What is the nature of their unique creation – the
    demagogue? This is the renowned and original analysis of one of this
    century’s most threatening and influential phenomena by the nobel
    prize-winning thinker.

    Considered one of the great books of the twentieth century Crowds and
    Power was the work responsible for winning Elias Canetti the 1981 Nobel
    Prize. From the destructive behaviour of soccer crowds to the horror of
    tyrannical rulers and from Bushmen and Pueblo Indian rain dances to the
    pilgrimage to Mecca, the author takes us on a fascinating journey through
    anthropology, psychology, biology, religion and literature. Ranging from the
    deeply profound to the overtly controversial - from the finger exercises of
    monkeys to the hallucinations of alcoholics - this book will change forever the
    way you look at groups of people and realise their awesome potential to be
    manipulated for good or for evil. He concludes that 'If we would master
    power we must face command openly and boldly, and search for means to
    deprive it of its sting'. This book will change forever the way you look at
    groups of people and the whole concept of power.

    Has Carl Rove written a book .."How to run a country through the use of a glove puppet" ? or something along those lines. That might be an interesting read.

    Nations are imagined communities. You could start your own if you so wish:

    You need it internationally recognized first. This can be a problem.
