    [Free E–pub] Harvard and the Unabomber: The Education of an American Terrorist By Alston Chase This is a very interesting book although I'm not sure I agree with all of it But the best thing for me was Chase's analysis of the ideas that were prevalent at Harvard during Kaczynski's time there Various authors in the curriculum thought technology was a scourge and that the system reduced human beings to pawns Sound familiar?

Ted Kaczynski aka The Unabomber pursued over a few years a terrorist campaign to undermine modern society The publication of his manifesto by some media outlets eventually led to his arrest and convictionThe author of this book Alston Chase presents an interpretation of the Unabomber The author like Ted Kaczynski was a student at Harvard pursued an academic career but left it and moved to the wilderness in MontanaThe author claims that there were two factors which shaped Ted Kaczynski into the Unabomber One factor which I did not know about until I read this book was that Ted Kaczynski when he was a Harvard student was a subject in a highly unethical psychological experiment conducted by Henry A Murray a veteran of DoD psychology experimentation The subjects were deceived about the nature and length of the study and they underwent highly stressful interrogationsA second factor in the author view was Harvard s curriculum at the time Alston Chase calls it a culture of despair Students had to read analytic philosophers who argued that moral statements were mere expressions of feeling anthropologists who advocated cultural relativism and social critics of science and technologyI m not convinced about Chase s second factor Intellectuals such as Chase who was a philosophy professor have a tendency to overrate the influence of ideas Nevertheless I found this book a fascinating study of Ted Kaczynski

This book is so thoroughly researched and well written It covers American social paradigms I hope that s the right word back to 1939 I feel mean for only giving it three stars It probably deserves four but there is a big chunk in the middle of the book I felt could have been compressed I felt that it dragged on but the author was clearly trying to pack in as much information as possible The conclusion is thought provoking and chilling very relevant to recent terrorism in the US
