POISONER IN CHIEF: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Henry Holt, (2019) dj. Hardcover first edition - The story of the man who oversaw the CIAs secret drug and mind-control experiments of the 1950s and 60s, a story which was only to be pieced together after Gottlieb's death. "As the head of the MK-ULTRA mind control project, he directed brutal experiments at secret prisons on three continents. He made pills, powders, and potions that could kill or maim without a trace - including some intended for Fidel Castro and other foreign leaders. His experiments spread LSD across the United States, making him a hidden godfather of the 1960s counterculture. For years he was the chief supplier of spy tools used by CIA officers around the world." Photographs, extensive notes, bibliography, index. 354 pp. ISBN: 978-1250140432.
