Format: Hardcover
This is one of the better books you can buy on Cults, Sects, and New Religions. It covers just about everything. It is written in an encyclopedia format. So you look up a group you are interested in and get the facts about them. I would see if you can get it through your library before you buy one for yourself just because it is an expensive book. Make sure you like it before spending that kind of money. I think they might have a preview here on Amazon which should help you see what it is about.

Touches only the surface of cults that exist. Many so called cults left out. For this reason, very disappointing .
