This academic tome is a measured and well-considered perspective of the events of Jonestown of 1978, with particular emphasis on the religious aspects, reflecting the author's academic position. It avoids the hysterical tendencies of other works about this event, and gives a fascinating insight into American society at that time. It does, however, expect the reader to have already a fairly good knowledge of the People's Temple and the events at Jonestown, and though by the end of the book the reader will have gleaned enough about these topics, I think an extra chapter early on in the book outlining the history of the Temple and Jonestown would be very useful and make the book easier to use.
