Publications:

Industry of lie: Propaganda, Consipiracy and Information War – Průmysl lži: propaganda, konspirace a dezinformační válka. Praha: Triton, 2017. ISBN 978-80-7553-492-7.  About history and presence of Russian propaganda, published on Czech language.

The Industry of Lies was published in 2017 to much success, I am pleased to say. The book is currently number 27 on the overall best-seller list for 2018, immediately following a Jo Nesbo’s thriller. That in itself is no small accomplishment for a work of non-fiction. For more information, please follow the links below:
