Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control Reviews

  • David Wineberg
    One of the (many) problems with the CIA is who knows what. The less you know, the less you have to lie about and potentially get caught on. Or catch the agency on, which is worse. The result is illegal actions at will, from torture to drug experiments on the unwitting to assassinations of political ...

    Thanks to Fresh AirAs so often happens, most of the non- fiction works that I read come out of hearing an episode of the National Public radio show, Fresh Air. I have never been disappointed by a book presented on the show. This book was engrossing and horrific at the same time. It's subject is at o...

    Stephen Kinzer’s latest book, POISONER IN CHIEF: SIDNEY GOTTLIEB AND THE CIA SEARCH FOR MIND CONTROL is a very troubling and disconcerting book. The fact that the United States government sanctioned a program designed to conduct what the author terms, “brain warfare” highlights a poli...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing.In the early days of the cold war, the CIA rose from the ashes of the OSS. The higher ups were obsessed with the ideas of brain washing and mind control. They were convinced that the Russians led the way.Sidney Gottlieb got a job experimenting with drugs and hy...

    I know this sounds like a loonybook, but Kinzer isn't a loony. Gottlieb was very real, and this book contains nothing that stretches the bounds of reality. In fact, it's all so well-documented, and Kinzer is so certain that MKUltra not only was a major CIA op, but was ultimately a waste of time and ...
