A collection of fifteen essays by persons who were touched in some way by the mass deaths in Guyana. The volume includes reflections by former Peoples Temple members, insights by psychologists and counsellors, and confessions by relatives vividly reveal what happened to individuals in the decade following November 18, 1978. The original theory concerning the events at Jonestown is that the Central Intelligence Agency employed the Reverend Jim Jones to administer a pharmaceutical field test in mind control and ethnic weaponry to a large test group, namely the membership of the Peoples Temple. It has been proposed that Dr. Laurence Layton (former Chief of the U.S. Army's Chemical and Biological Warfare Division) cultured the AIDS virus to be tested and deployed in a CIA-backed experiment in Jonestown, Guyana.
