Science and Freedom "was launched in autumn 1953 after a Congress [for Cultural Freedom, a CIA front group] conference of the same name...in drawing attention to racial segregation in America, as well as apartheid in South Africa, [the] journal spoke about issues on which the Congress was, on the whole, muted. It also recognized détente long before most people knew the meaning of the word, encouraging intellectual exchanges with the Soviet bloc and a softening of the West's Cold War stance." (Frances Stonor Saunders, The Cultural Cold War: The CIA in the World of Arts and Letters). Includes articles on universities and academic freedom in Iran, Turkey, and Nigeria.
