Ever since American prisoners of war in Korea suddenly switchedsides to the Communist cause, the concept of brainwashing hascontinued to fascinate and confuse.Is it really possible to force any thinking person to act in a way completely alien to his character? What makes so-called brainwashingso different from the equally insidious effects of indoctrination andconditioning, or even advertising and education?Research findings from psychology show that brainwashing is nota special subversive technique; it is the clever manipulation ofunrealised influences that operate in all our lives.This book, by breaking down so-called brainwashing to its individualelements, shows how social conditioning, need for approval,emotional dependency and much else that we are unaware of,prevent us from being as self-directed as we think; and, conversely,which human traits make us the least susceptible to subtle influence.
