Publisher : Inner Traditions/Bear & Company
Description

A former cult member and a leading expert in counseling people away from cults, Steven Hassan brings his best-selling book to audiocassette. He exposes the troubling facts about destructive cults--including their use of psychological manipulation to gain money and power, and their influence on government, the legal system, and society as a whole--and explains how to distinguish them from constructive organizations. He gives specific guidance to those who are presently drawn or attached to cults and advice to concerned friends and family of cult members.An invaluable guide for parents, teachers, health professionals, clergy, attorneys, and all those whose lives are touched by cult issues. 

International importance of the book is indicated by the Japanese edition print run of 60,000 copies. Demand in this country has been strong following the cult tragedy in Waco, Texas. 

Unlike any other title on the subject, it offers concrete information on cult psychology and practical methods of identifying and guarding against cult brainwashing techniques.
