        The Captive Mind is not an easy or entertaining book. The tone and style is dry, heavy, humorless, replete with convoluted thought structures - a tad like life in the "people's democracies".

It has an autobiographical tone, though is not about its author, and it concentrates less on the coercive nature of communism and more on its allure, especially for the intellectuals.

New York: Knopf, (DLC) (OCoLC) Material Type: Document, Internet.   But in he defected to the West and two years later he published his most influential work, The Captive Mind.3 Never out of print, it is by far the most insightful and enduring account of the attraction of intellectuals to Stalinism and, more generally, of the appeal of authority and authoritarianism to the intelligentsia.
