Book Dissects
CIA Mind Control

By Michael Collins Piper


.An eye-opening and important (but unfortunately little-noticed) book — first published more than 30 years ago — is finally back in print, and it’s available from AMERICAN FREE PRESS. The Search for the “Manchurian Candidate” by former State Department officer John Marks is the one book that puts to rest the old saw that “there’s no such thing as mind control.”
Not to be confused with the popular political novel — and two Hollywood films based on that novel — which inspired the title of Marks’s book, The Search for the “Manchurian Candidate,” lays out, in carefully documented detail, the whole bizarre story of the long-secret
mind control experimentation by the CIA.
Despite the fact that — at least since the emergence of the Internet — there has been available an array of data that has confirmed the whole ugly and still murky world of science and intrigue merging in the arena of mind and behavioral control that was notably catalogued by Marks’s book, there are still naysayers prone to claim that the subject should be relegated to the arena of science fiction. It’s all a “conspiracy theory” — or so they say.
First of all, let it be said that Marks is not an author to be dismissed as a crank. Many will recall Marks as the co-author, along with former high-ranking CIA officer Victor Marchetti, of the internationally heralded and hotly controversial 1974 best-seller, The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence, the first book ever officially
censored prior to publication by the CIA. So Marks has a proven track record of some distinction.
The author’s background aside, this 264-page book is jam-packed from beginning to end with historical facts and information gleaned directly from the archives of the CIA itself, not to mention other data unearthed by Senate investigators in the 1970s.
And what makes the book so significant is that — despite the many years that have passed since it was first published — this book probably remains the last word on the subject.
There have been a number of works delving into the subject of mind control that have received a lot of circulation in the “patriot” movement, including one that purports to be a first-hand account by a former mind-control victim. But without commenting on the merit of some of those quite dubious and suspect works, it is accurate to state flatly and with no reservation that Marks’s book is the one that establishes, definitively, that American intelligence did and surely still does engage in experiments in the field of “brain washing.”
If you want an authoritative source on the topic and one that is not as likely to be dismissed as fantasy, The Search for the “Manchurian Candidate” should be included in your library.
