The Cultural Cold War: The CIA and the World of Arts and Letters

Click image to learn more, and to buy the book.

The internecine partisan battles in the U.S. are often referred to as “culture wars” – struggles between liberals and conservatives over various trivial social issues. The real culture war, however, was fought during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. This book, The Cultural Cold War by Frances Stonor Saunders (originally published in the UK as Who Paid the Piper?) details the numerous covert operations and front organizations set up by the CIA to convince the world that capitalism could produce more creative (free) art, music, film and writing as compared to the “dull” and supposedly contrived cultural output of socialist realism.

This is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand just what the CIA really is, what it does, and how it uses its vast resources and network of agents to dupe and manipulate people all over the world; in other words – to conduct psychological warfare in order to control minds and enslave the attached bodies.
