BeschreibungIn 1970 a coalition of student activists opposing the Vietnam War circulated documents revealing the involvement of several prominent social scientists in US counterinsurgency activities in Thailand - activities that could cause harm to the people who were the subject of the scholars' research. This work presents a study of this event.
