The time to speak up is before the genie is out of the bottle."—The Wall Street Journal"One of the most important thinkers describes the literally mind-boggling possibilities that modern brain science could present for national security."—Lawrence J. Korb, former US Assistant Secretary of DefenseThe first book of its kind,Mind Warscovers the ethical dilemmas and bizarre history of cutting edge technology and neuroscience developed for military applications. As the author discusses the innovative Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the role of the intelligence community and countless university science departments in preparing the military and intelligence services for the twenty-first century, he also charts the future of national security.Fully updated and revised, this edition features new material on deep brain stimulation, neuro hormones, and enhanced interrogation. With in-depth discussions of "psyops" mind control experiments, drugs that erase both fear and the need to sleep, microchip brain implants and advanced prosthetics, supersoldiers and robot armies,Mind Warsmay read like science fiction or the latest conspiracy thriller, but its subjects are very real and changing the course of modern warfare.Jonathan D.
