Why would a group of people perform the most heinous acts of violence, wreaking havoc throughout the community? And why have such organizations become so prevalent in our time? Come face to face with the most sinister criminal groups, from the Ku Klux Klan to Aum Shinrikyo, whose members released nerve gas on Tokyo's subways. Delve into their history and the variety of causes motivating them. Among the brotherhoods examined: the Nazis; Freemasons and Luddites; terrorist bands such as the Baader-Meinhof gang and the Japanese Red Army; the PLO; the Mafia; the Medellin drug cartel; and many more. 256 pages, 6 X 9 1/4.
