Wilhelm Reich vs. The u.s.A

by Jerome Greenfield. Norton, $10.00. The author has made a conscientious pretense at a nonpartisan account of the campaign waged against Dr. Reich and his orgone boxes by the Food and Drug Administration, but it is a pretense. Mr. Greenfield’s sympathies are all with Reich, the persecuted scientist, and even anti-orgone readers will probably agree that the government was, at the least, guilty of overkill in the case. But Reich himself, it appears, was either outrageously obtuse or out of his mind, and the book does nothing to settle this intriguing question. Photographs.
