About this Item

xxviii, [2], 155, [5] pages. Notes. Author's Note. Bibliography. Index. DJ has slight wear and soiling. The military uses of parapsychology. The author served in the U.S. Navy for five years. He then joined Jack Anderson's investigative reporting staff in 1979. His scoops included a prediction of Israel's attack on Iraq's nuclear reactor, published ten months before it happened, and the revelation of the PLO/s role in the American hostage crisis with Iran. He has been a correspondent for The Economist of London's Foreign Report. Derived for a Kirkus review: What gives the book its attraction is the number of military or government people willing to be identified as past or present supporters of psi research--either because they believe in it, or because the Russians are said to be doing it. On this basis, we may be spending $6 million to support projects that range from the vaguely reasonable--laboratory studies of dream telepathy conducted by psychologists--to beyond-the-fringe, thought control via telepathic hypnosis, and enlistment of warrior/monk-psychics to counter terrorism. Some of this makes for ripe reading. We learn, too, some incidental intelligence: the founder of McDonnell Aircraft was a believer in the occult, and that's why the planes have names like Phantom and Voodoo. We also learn a few Uri Geller tricks: the belt buckle with the built-in vise, the confederate with the magnet in his hat. McRae likes to talk about the possibility of Something Real There and lets the proponents speak for themselves. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Bookseller Inventory # 15722
