A most thoughtful and chilling book, sure to anger those not familiar with this story [or stories]. There appears to be either a subset, or superset, of psychologists or psychology workers who were involved in pseudo-molestation in the 1980s, management techniques in the 1990s, and during the last decade or so, with torture interrogation techniques!
