This is not a dry book at all. It has all the suspense of a thriller even though you probably already know the bizarre ending (Moonies become prominant in the 1970's, parents have their children deprogrammed, etc.) Lofland - a professor at UC Davis - is quite an engaging presence in person and in writing.
Read this if you want to learn how to control groups of people, or to avoid being controlled against your wishes.
