(p.37) Chapter 2 The NWAC at Work
Patriotism and Propaganda in First World War Britain
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the work of the National War Aims Committee (NWAC) in Great Britain. It describes the evolution of NWAC from a privately funded, unofficial organization into a publicly funded, quasi-official body and the changes in its operation after the appointment of Sir Edward Carson to assume general supervision over domestic propaganda. It discusses the two main problems of the NWAC in executing its function, which include the lack of a definitive governmental statement on war aims and the reluctant involvement of Labour organisations.

Keywords:   National War Aims Committee, NWAC, Great Britain, Edward Carson, domestic propaganda, war aims, Labour organisations
