As noted elsewhere on the forum, Walter Bowart's classic study OPERATION MIND CONTROL was re-released in the mid 90's in an expanded edition featuring new research and many new chapters. This expanded edition was printed in a limited run of 500 copies and has proven very difficult to find.

The Concen conspiracy forum - a UK-based research site devoted to sharing rare and out-of-print materials (along with materials less rare) uploaded a complete PDF scan of Bowart's expanded edition a few months back. I downloaded it and set about retyping it into a new Word document in the hope of eventually presenting a perfectly readable edition (reformatted in InDesign) with new typesetting and print values to aid in comprehension. That version won't be ready for some time though, so in the interest of making the research available I've uploaded that original Concen PDF to the Scribd document sharing site, where anyone can read it, and download it. If I'm able to eventually complete the reformatted edition I'll make a note of it here. This currently available edition however is perfectly readable and should prove of value to those who have been waiting to see it. The original PDF file was quite large - this revised edition of Bowart's book is more than 800 pages long - so be patient with this document if it takes a little while to load.

I'd very much like to download it and have a membership, but don't see a place for 'download' only to view it page by page.

I'm not sure what's going on as in the Scribd settings as I've marked it as available for free download, but I see what you mean. I'll try to find out what's going on. If anyone knows of any free file-sharing sites similar to Megaupload that can accept large files (this one is around 120mb) I'm happy to upload it there.

I'm no expert on Scribd, but I do believe you can set it somehow for download.....try that first. It clearly says Tags:
This document has no tags.
Free download as or read online for free
...you have only set the wrong options, I think.

The tag field only describes things (i.e 'CIA', 'conspiracy theories', 'mind control'), whereas Scribd has other settings internally that let you choose whether a doc can be downloadable or not, and I've marked all those correctly. Either Scribd is still processing the document or something else is going on. I'll try and figure it out and will upload it again tonight if need be to see if that fixes it.

Thanks...it is an important document and rare as they get.....

Please post when you find a solution, reading all 800 pages on a screen is not going to work, nor does that preserve in on our computers. I think it is just a matter of the settings/permissions on scribd, but if not there are other places. LET US KNOW! Thanks.

I'm trying a couple of file-sharing sites for starters. The first one is here -

http://www.4shared.com/office/NU3QiGkv/Operation_Mind_Control_-_Resea.html

and it has a download button but does request you register a free account with them to get access - just an email address will do it. A second sharing site is proving problematic so I'll try another one (or more) tomorrow.

This worked quite nicely. Thanks.

Glad to hear it Lauren! Peter, let me know if you can download the document okay, and what your thoughts are on the extended edition once you've had a look at it.

Thanks very much for sharing this rarity Anthony. I've been hoping it would emerge after seeing Jan mention it on here...

Yup - many thanks to Anthony.

I'm happy in principle to discuss any of Walter Bowart's research.

From the New York Times Obituary, January 14, 2008: Walter Bowart, a founder and the first publisher of The East Village Other, a New York newspaper so countercultural that it made The Village Voice look like a church circular, died on Dec. 18 in Inchelium, Wash. He was 68 and lived in Los Angeles.
Published twice a month from 1965 to 1972, The East Village Other was among the country’s first major underground newspapers. Founded by Mr. Bowart and three colleagues — John Wilcock, Sherry Needham and Allan Katzman — the paper had, at its height, a circulation of 60,000.Mr. Bowart, who left the paper in 1968, was later best known for his book “Operation Mind Control” (Dell, 1978), which argued that the United States government conducted covert psychological experiments on unwitting people.For seven heady years, The East Village Other waxed lyrical on the counterculture’s movers and shakers, among them Allen Ginsberg (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/g/allen_ginsberg/index.html?inline=nyt-per), Timothy Leary and Abbie Hoffman. As publisher, Mr. Bowart (pronounced BO-art) came to national attention in 1966 after he recommended, in testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency, that the committee members try LSD.The East Village Other was instantly recognizable by its psychedelic design and by its photographs of attractive young people with their consciousness raised and their clothing lowered. It was also renowned for publishing the work of cutting-edge underground cartoonists like R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/s/art_spiegelman/index.html?inline=nyt-per). (The paper briefly published a separate comics tabloid, Gothic Blimp Works.)For EVO, as the paper was known, a vital revenue stream was the Personals column, which left little to the imagination, at least by mid-’60s standards. (“Frenchman, graduate student, writer, will happily share his East Village apt. with swinging chick. Excellent for learning more about French ways.”)Perhaps out of nostalgia for the newspapers they grew up with, EVO’s editors also included a cooking column. A typical recipe began: “Toast 1/2 ounce of grass until slightly golden and dry in an iron skillet. Be careful not to burn it.”Walter Howard Kirby was born in Omaha on May 14, 1939. Adopted as an infant by a family named Bowart, he grew up in Enid, Okla. As a young man he planned to be a painter, and after studying at the University of Oklahoma (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/u/university_of_oklahoma/index.html?inline=nyt-org) he set out for New York, where he quickly and rapturously became involved in the underground cultural scene.Mr. Bowart’s four marriages, to Linda Dugmore, Peggy Mellon Hitchcock, Margo Jordan and Rebecca Fullerton, ended in divorce. Besides Wolfe, his son from his first marriage, who lives in Perth, Australia, Mr. Bowart is survived by two daughters from his second marriage, Sophia Bowart of San Francisco and Nuria Bowart of Berkeley, Calif.; a son from his fourth marriage, Wythe, of San Francisco; three sisters, Janet Ryan of Inchelium, Nancy Maloney of Grover Beach, Calif., and Kathy Hollis of Hamilton, Mont.; and two grandchildren.In the late 1960s, after leaving The East Village Other, Mr. Bowart founded Omen Press, which published metaphysical books. In the late 1980s he was the editor of Palm Springs Life magazine, which, according to recent promotional materials, covers “celebrities, luxury homes, fine art and dining, fashion, golf and society.”
