When Harvey Weinstein was a child, he watched in horror as his father sank further and further into depression and mental disease.
Years later, after himself becoming a psychiatrist, Weinstein was even more horrified to learn that his father's treatment at Montreal's prestigious Allan Memorial Institute constituted a savage regime of drug and shock therapies and mind control experiments. Lou Weinstein's mind had been systematically destroyed. Destroyed, increbibly, in service of diabolical research projects funded by the CIA and the Canadian governement.
Father, Son and CIA is Harvey Weinsteins painful but moving story of that discovery, and of his efforts to bring the CIA to account for the terrible consequences of its reckless experimentation.
"This book has been wrung from the author's soul and will not easily be forgotten."
"A passionate, even aching, account of the wanton destruction of a family."
"Frightening but compelling."
