Destroying the World to Save It : Aum Shinrikyo, Apocalyptic Violence, and the the New Global Terrorism by Robert Jay Lifton
"As with all of Lifton's reflections on politics and psychology, this one has many powerful and compelling insights." - The New York Times, Richard Bernstein. "astonishingly intimate portrait of Aum Shinrikyo, the Japanese cult that became world-famous when it released a nerve gas called sarin into the Tokyo subway ... extremely detailed. ... But the book is much more than a story of a single cult. It's an exploration of the idea of cults: how they grow, who joins them, who leads them. ... An intelligent, ambitious exploration of the power of cults and a definite eye-opener."
American Library Association, David Pitt.
