from back cover: "The explosive events of Jonestown and Koreagate have rivited the eyes of America on the burgeoning and largely misunderstood movement of contmporary religious cults. Robert S. Ellwood attempts to further our understanding of these occult, mystical and Eastern spiritual movements in the United States by placing them in a distinctively American context demonstrating that they are neither new nor alien."
