This unique theoretical orientation dispels uch of the confusion and mystique surrounding the cult experience. Written in an easy-to-understand format with numerous quotes from ex-cult members, this book answers questions such as: How do cults recruit people? Are cults harmless expressions of religious pluralism or do they represent a threat to traditional values? What is deprogramming? Chapters address such topics as the cult controversy; facts about brainwashing; brain damage an conversion; strategies of destructive persuasion; belief and attitude change; and religion, illusion and the law. Legal implications including the rights of cult members, remedies for parents, and the risks of coercive deprogramming are examined.
