Abstract:

"In Brainwashing, Kathleen Taylor brings together for the first time the worlds of neuroscience and social psychology to examine why humans have attempted througout history to influence and control the thoughts of others. The technical term for this process, brainwashing, was coined shortly after the Korean War, but the concept has been with us ever since humans began to interact with one another. In this compelling and thought-provoking book, Taylor explores the history and the science of thought-control and shows how it still exists all around us, from marketing and television to politics and education." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0620/2004276202-d.html.
