Brainwashing: The Science of Thought Control
By Kathleen Taylor
Longlisted, General Prize 2005
Brainwashing is the first book to combine the latest findings in social psychology and neuroscience to try to understand the incredibly complicated workings of the human brain. In elegant and accessible prose, and with abundant use of anecdotes and case-studies, Turner's fascinating book looks at the ethical problems involved in carrying out the required experiments on humans and animals, and the frightening implications of such research.
