The seminal book on the story of Jonestown (Associated Press) is restored to print for the thirtieth anniversary of the Jonestown massacre, with a new preface by the author. After many years, one of the most widely sought out-of- print books is newly available: Ravenreveals the complete, shocking story of Jonestown, providing the definitive account of the worst cult tragedy in American history. Tim Reitermans PEN Awardwinning work explores the ideals-gone-wrong, the intrigue, and grim realities behind the Peoples Temple and its implosion in the jungle of South America. Ravenclarifies historical misperceptions regarding the character and motives of Jim Jones; the reasons why people followed him; and the important truth that many of those who perished at Jonestown were victims of mass murder rather than suicide. Here is the unparalleled record of a catastrophe the world still struggles to comprehend.
