Battle For The Mind - William Sargant (Pan, 1959)

The media and politicians battle for our minds every day. When it comes to religion, I'll take mine in the form of the Art Ensemble of Chicago's homage to old-time testifyin' (see clip below), thanks. Battle For The Mind was first published in 1957, a couple of years before Richard Condon's novel, The Manchurian Candidate. Mind control was a hot topic. These days it seems to be the sole preserve of cranky conspiracy theorists.
