Harvard and the Making of the Unabomber|
The year is 1958. A sixteen-year-old boy arrives at Harvard College. He absorbs an intellectual ethos that emphasizes the dangers of science and the evils of modern society. Meanwhile, he is subjected to a brutal and abusive psychological experiment that today would never be allowed. Meet the young Ted Kaczynski, future serial murderer and anti-technology zealot.
