Brainwashing: The Science of Thought Control

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.
