    • Abstract:
      The article discusses the "sleeper effect" concept in the Cold War era and in post-September 11, 2001 terrorism. The author discusses 1880s research on hypnosis and hypnotic crimes from scientists including Jean-Martin Charcot, Auguste Forel, and Hippolyte Bernheim. The author describes Cold War concerns about Communist brainwashing, including their depiction in the book and film "The Manchurian Candidate" by Richard Condon, and compares them to 21st-century concerns about "sleeper cells" of terrorists.
