About this title


An alarmed overview of contemporary methods of mind control which recoils at government agencies' unconstitutional techniques and willingness to finance dubious research and finds evidence of equally grim attitudes ingrained in scientific research practices. Chavkin has gathered together many headline stories of recent years (CIA brainwashing and LSD experiments, the Jensen-Schockley controversy, prison behavior modification attempts, Tuskegee's untreated-syphilis patients) and examined the work of influential theorists like Ervin and Mark and E. O. Wilson, and he perceives distressing patterns of contempt and denial of rights. Chavkin goes to the heart of the matter, indicating his sources and rationing his expressions of outrage; for an even more forceful indictment.
