By David Johanssen

It’s the height of the Cold War and the United States government is desperate to combat the spread of Communism.

To test its efficiency, entire American cities are contaminated with bacteria in simulated attacks on enemy populations.

But the real focus of such diabolical research is on mastering the art of mind control. Psychiatrists at top academic institutions work under secret contract with the CIA. Psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public are exposed to a startling array of experiments designed to facilitate interrogations and program new behavior. Every psychological technique is explored, including hypnosis, electroshock therapy, and lethal cocktails of drugs. What was the extent of these brainwashing experiments? How did the CIA become involved in such far-reaching and disturbing research?
