Early studies of the Cold War propaganda history basically saw US propaganda of the Cold War period. There has been a tendency for research to “go beyond Cold War history,” as scholars try to explore the origins of Cold War propaganda in the pre-Cold War era and look at factors that lie outside Cold War logic and historical mechanisms. They believe that regardless of Cold War propaganda ideas, measures, media, institution building, work ethics, or even historical role and status, such propaganda contained a great many pre-Cold War elements and a logic that differs from that of Cold War politics. Therefore, research should start from an overall perspective and a renewed approach to the study of external propaganda.
