The Watchtower movement has over ten million followers and remains one of the fastest growing religious movements in the world today. Since the movement actively proselytizes throughout the world, many people are aware of Jehovah's Witnesses, but readers may not be aware that the movement has profoundly influenced the constitutional law of many countries, including America and Canada.

This volume contains almost 10,000 references on the Watchtower movement and the dozen or so major schisms that have occurred since its founding in 1879. An introductory chapter reviews the history, major events, and doctrinal changes of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Books, book chapters, booklets, dissertations, journal articles, and book sections that examine the Watchtower movement are referenced in English and other langauges such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Turkish. Selectively annotated, the entries are grouped in five major sections for easy reference. Scholars and researchers will appreciate the comprehensive list the author has provided of all literature published by the Watchtower movement throughout its history.
