An enlightening volume of diverse chapters focusing on the interrelationships between cults and the family, this comprehensive book documents the rise of cults as a social phenomenon in contemporary America. Written from a wide range of perspectives--an ex-cult member, parents of a former Moonie, psychiatrists, and sociologists--contributors examine moral and ethical issues, options for helping distressed families whose children are cult members deprogramming, theoretical insights, clinical practices, and the legal aspects of retrieving a family member from a cult.
