Daniel Golden - Spy Schools: How the CIA, FBI, and Foreign Intelligence Secretly Exploit America's Universities

Upcoming Event
Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 3:30 pm

Until the 1970s, when the anti-Vietnam War protests made them unwelcome, the CIA and other security agencies traditionally recruited heavily at the nation’s top universities. In the wake of 9/11, the fear of terrorism has changed the atmosphere, and academia is again a prime source for new intelligence analysts and covert agents. Golden, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal series on admission practices at prestigious universities became the book Price of Admission, reveals a startling range of CIA-sponsored activities on campuses across the country, including the enlistment of students and faculty as part-time spies, the use of agents to persuade visiting scientists to defect, and the theft of research data.
