Electromagnetic mind-control, open-air biological testing in New York City subways, and clandestine dosing of citizens with psychotropic drugs are all part of America’s little known, yet well-footnoted, history of medical abuse. Lab USA chronicles and illuminates these and many more events through the medium of comix. Employing declassified documents, court testimony, and interviews, Lab USA contrasts objective facts with powerful images to reveal the role of language and authority in the implementation of these dark deeds.

Despite a poorly organized and confusing introduction written by a group called the Critical Art Ensemble, Pyle's vivid documentation offers a chilling indictment of a long and despicable history of bogus science inflicted for the most part on poor and working-class people.
