About this title


An exploration of the connections between academic research and official public policy during the Cold War. The text considers the effects of US military, intelligence and propaganda agencies on academic culture and intellectual life. The essays presented in the text 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.
