Clearer Than Truth
The Polygraph And The American Cold War
de John Philipp Baesler
Sobre o livro
A person strapped to a polygraph machine. Few images are more evocative of Cold War paranoia. In this first comprehensive history of the polygraph as a tool and symbol of American Cold War policies, John Philipp Baesler tells the story of a technology with weak scientific credentials that was nevertheless celebrated as a device that could expose both internal and external enemies.
