Altering Behavior is concerned with the technological, political, and ethical aspects of recent innovations in mind, mood, and behaviour control. Clark reviews recent research on chemical and electrical stimulation of the brain, biofeedback, operant conditioning and other techniques, in order to assess the prospects for `artificial' happiness, goodness or increased human capacity. The danger of political misuse of these techniques is also discussed, and public policies to safeguard against abuse are suggested.
