About this title

Synopsis:

A sobering, occasionally amusing, and altogether compelling look at the impulses that have fueled the rising pitch of Armageddon, this startling book explores the arcane but significant phenomena of contemporary American cults--from survivalists and white supremacists to UFO cultists, satanists, and the most far-flung New Agers. 40 photos.

Review:

The editor of Apocalypse Culture returns with another collection of anti-essays of his own authorship, plus a few from his disgruntled friends. Not even sacrilege is sacred to Adam Parfrey as he aims his poison pen at targets ranging from Andrea Dworkin to G.G. Allin. Articles on the sex lives of freaks, amputees, and Nazis are sure to offend someone you know, and they're oddly compelling reading as well. In fact, there's not a clunker in this volume of politically astute if overly nasty pieces. Not to be missed are the interesting series of articles on the militia movement and the Oklahoma City bombing, which defy easy categorization on the standard political chart by attacking the media's biases as well as the narrowness of the militia movements.Cult Rapture is fine reading for a cozy night around a post-nuclear hell pit.
