Summary/Abstract: This study analyses, at the present moment, the phenomena of propaganda, persuasion and manipulation in the political communication of the 21st century, filtered through the specialized study in the social sciences field. In the first section of the study, I have established the conceptual basis of propaganda, persuasion and manipulation, going over a summarized history, then over the corresponding terminological delimitations. Moreover, I have included the rules and the techniques and mostly the connection among these three concepts. Once the conceptual terms have been determined, one can proceed to their practical application in the area of political communication. I have chosen to operate both with the analysis of the bibliography, and with the filter and the personal interpretation of the field mentioned above.
