Overview

A large reference volume with hundreds of pages of documents detailing government investigations into Jim Jones's notorious People Temple cult. Included are reports and testimony leading up to the infamous mass suicide at Jonestown in Guyana, as well as a number of investigations into the organization and aftermath of the tragedy.

Featured are statements by contemporary experts on religion, cults, sects, brainwashing and mental health reflecting on the situation, as well as sworn affidavits from former Peoples Temple members, court documents and legal briefings, FBI transcripts of recordings from the last moments at Jonestown, just prior to and throughout much of the ritualistic suicides of hundreds of Jones's followers, reports on the assassination of Representative Leo J. Ryan of California, and a look back at the incident from 25 years after the tragedy, all supplemented with photographs.

This scholarly compilation has been formatted and adjusted elegantly for use and readability on the Nook, and is sure to make a handsome addition to the digital library of anyone interested in the history of the Jonestown incident, modern American history, cults, and religion.

Title is misleading- thought it centered around Jonestown but I skipped through most of it- only two chapters were even worth reading. A waste for me!!!!
