Cults Uncovered by Emily G. Thompson

Discover the shocking truth about some of the most disturbing cults that have ever existed-cults led by charismatic psychopaths such as Charles Manson, David Koresh, and Jim Jones that have exploded into acts of appalling savagery.

How did Manson inspire his 'family' to launch a campaign of murder? What twisted ideology lay behind horrific events like the Waco Siege, the Aum Doomsday Cult's attack on the Tokyo metro, and the mass suicide/murders of Peoples Temple? Why did the suicidal adherents of Heaven's Gate believe Doomsday was at hand? How did the idealistic commune of Rajneeshpuram collapse into shocking controversies, involving biological terrorism and attempted murder?

Cults Uncovered explores these and many more bizarre and frightening cases from all over the world to reveal terrifying stories of manipulation, coercion, abuse, and murder.
