This is not a quick/cash in book by some wanna-be, we are talking about a well-crafted piece. Furthermore, aside of being extremely well written and researched, the work shed some light into the psychology of cults. I believe that Raven can help us understand and eliminate many "Jim Joneses" that plague our world culture.
Well done Reiterman/Jacobs hey what's up! Mr. Publisher, this book cannot be out of print.

This is the best in depth study of not just Jonestown but of the career of Jim Jones before that horrible event. Reiterman was present at the airport at Jonestown when Rep. Leo Ryan and the others were killed. The book is a character study of a man who started out as a person who did good but became a paranoid megalomaniac. Reiterman and Jacobs are to be commended for an amazing job of research and a terrific read.
In this age when so much sensationalism is being published, it is a shame that this book is no longer available. It is a cautionary tale worthy of repeating in light of Waco and other horrific events. Hopefully it will be republished.

Well written, unbiased account of the Jonestown Massacre by someone who was there when it happened, and knows how to write. I was wide awake for the last 300pp sacrificing sleep just to get to the end of it. It helps explain how and why 912 innocent people died at the instruction of their leader, Jim Jones.

With the 20th anniversary of this sorry chapter in human history coming up this year it might be appropriate to call attention to this powerfull account by former San Francisco Examiner writer Tim Reiterman. The research and narrative is top notch and it reads like a fast paced adventure story. Reiterman was shot as he stepped off an aircraft at the runway in Guiana. He lived to write this historic account which tells the real story of the end times of Jones and the Peoples Temple.

The story of Jim Jones and Peoples Temple was the basis for my Master's Thesis. Reiterman's text was indispensible in that pursuit. As a prior reviewer states, it is an indispensible warning which should be read and understood by all people. But more importantly, this story has a very current importance in that Charles Garry, one of the lawyers for Jim Jones, was a partner with Robert Treuhaft. Treuhaft and his wife, Jessica Mitford, are avowed communists. Treuhaft has spent his entire career advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB according to historian, Stephen Schwartz.
What then makes this a current story of importance is that Hillary Rodham Clinton accepted a summer internship in Treuhaft's Berkeley,CA law firm during the summer of 1971. Even though she knew quite well that his firm was a leftist firm, it held no problems for her.
Additionally, since 80% of the people who died in Guyana on November 18, 1978 were Black, it adds credibility that liberals will allow minorities to die if it can show them as some sort of minority victim.
The story of Peoples Temple is a precursor to the story of Hillary Rodham Clinton's political thrust and as such, should be considered for reading. I agree, it's a shame it's out of print.
Reiterman takes the reader through the history of Jones's cult with an eye for detail and the precision of a seasoned writer. He shows how Jones was sexually perverted, committed to the destruction of the family, and willing to kill people for a cause which had gone sour long before the move to Jonestown. I highly recommend this book for reading.
