The Cult Files opens a fascinating window onto some of these extraordinary cults and alternative new religions. In balanced, factual accounts of events and personalities that often seem to defy reality, Mikul examines the cult's history, rituals and charismatic leaders, and the extremes to which their devoted followers will go in fulfilling their beliefs -regardless of the cost to themselves or to others. From the peaceable, industrious Oneida community, and the neighbourly Chen Tao calmly awaiting God's arrival in a flying saucer, to the madness and murder surrounding the Manson Family and Roch Th riault's Ant Hill Kids, these compelling stories are full of larger-than-life characters and elaborate mythologies, where incredible depravity co-exists with the highest of human aspirations.
