Synopsis: Now available in paperback, a shocking examination of the politics of intellectual life during the Cold War. Now in paperback, Universities and Empire is a fascinating exploration of the seamier connections between academic research and official public policy during the most turbulent years of the Cold War. It explores the effects of the U.S. military, intelligence, and propaganda agencies on academic culture and intellectual life. Essays by leading academics examine the origins of new subjects of research such as Asian Studies and Development Studies; mine the secret history of Cold War initiatives such as Project Troy and Project Camelot; and discuss the legacy of corporate involvement in the university system.

Contributors include Bruce Cumings (University of Chicago), Irene L. Gendzier (Boston University), Allan A. Needell (Smithsonian Institution), Kevin Gaines (University of Texas, Austin), Slava Gerovitch (MIT), Ellen Herman (University of Oregon), Christopher Simpson (American University), and Lawrence Soley (Marquette University).

About the Author: Christopher Simpson is an assistant professor at the School of Communication at American University. He is the author of Blowback, Science of Coercion, and other books.
