ISBN-10 / ASIN: B000NWVRFW The author of Operation Mind Control, Walter H. Bowart, died on December 18, 2007, according to his obituary in The New York Times and the reference page at Wikipedia.
In 1978, while living in New Hampshire, I had the opportunity of hearing a local ratio interview with Bowart concerning his book. I immediately went out and purchased a copy at the cover price of one dollar and ninety-five cents.
Government censorship of the book has created a scarcity of available copies and has skyrocketed the market selling price.
Everything the other reviewers at Amazon have alluded to regarding its supression by the government is true, for Operation Mind Control is indeed a mind blower. The State could not permit anyone to disclose such damaging information.
The secrets revealed in this book openly describe a clandestine government at war with its own people, covert forces which Bowart describes as "the cryptocracy."
This is precisely the kind of dangerous information that governments fear.
Operation Mind Control is not conspiracy theory.
It is documented fact.
Governments live by lies, by bamboozling and hiding the truth from their subjects.
Accordingly, the primary task of opponents of modern tyranny, as libertarian Murray N. Rothbard pointed out, is an educational one: to awaken the public to this manipulation and propaganda, by demystifying and desanctifying the state apparatus upon which such lies are built upon.
Walter Bowart heroically accomplished this feat.
Operation Mind Control spoke truth to power as few books published in the past thirty years have done.
That is why the government tried to destroy it.
Years ago I had the opportunity to discuss these matters with John Marks, the brilliant author of The Search For The Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control. Mark's volume somehow escaped the government's relentless campaign waged upon its predecessor.
I highly recommend his book in addition to Operation Mind Control
