Communes and Cultsby Kathlyn Gay
This book considers the similarities and differences of communes and cults, their development in North America, their appeal, and their problems. Some of the groups discussed are the Shakers, the Oneida Community, the Rainbow Family, and the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). The author also profiles some of the self-styled apostles and religious leaders and discusses their particular visions, destructive or otherwise. "Killer" cults, such as the Branch Davidians and Jonestown, are included.
