Check out this book: The Manipulation Of Human Behavior
This book represents a critical examination of some of the conjectures about the application of scientific knowledge to the manipulation of human behavior.
The problem is explored within a particular frame of reference: the interrogation of an unwilling subject.
A number of scientific areas have figured prominently in speculations regarding the application of science to the manipulation of behavior in interrogation. For this work, scientists who had done research in each of these areas were asked to review the state of relevant knowledge in their fields, to consider whether and how it might be applied by interrogators, and to evaluate the recourse available to highly motivated persons for resisting the attempted influence. Their reports constitute the body of this work.
This book is written from the perspective of POW and interrogator. My great take from this book is how the mind is affected by the physical limitations of the body. How it all works together. Good knowledge for anyone in the field. It is a technical book, but easy to read as well.
Adopted in the mid sixties as the foundation of FM32-54 this is a must read for anyone who has a brain a heart and is not afflicted by religiosity and current religio-conservative-repulbi-rat doctrine.
