Former CIA Personnel Director F.W.M. Janney once wrote, ""It is absolutely essential that the Agency have available to it the greatest single source of expertise: the American academic community."" To this end, the Central Intelligence Agency has poured tens of millions of dollars into universities to influence research and enlist students and faculty members into its ranks. This collection of nine essays in diverse academic fields explores the pernicious penetration of intelligence services into U.S. campus life to exploit academic study, recruit students, skew publications, influence professional advancement, misinform the public, and spy on professors. With its exhaustive list of CIA misdeeds and myriad suggestions for combatting the subversion of academic independence, this work provides a wake-up call for students and faculty across the country.
