I wonder how much we have learned since 1947 when Herbert Hyman and a colleague of his, Sheatsley, wrote an article on why information campaigns fail. Something very much like that was written about the same time by Daniel Katz (1946). How much have we learned since those days? How successful have we been in answering those questions?
