The Order of the Solar Temple: The Temple of Death; Controversial New Religions series

Hampshire, UK / Burlington VT: Ashgate, 2006. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Octavo. viii + 234pp. Black cloth with silver titling to spine, appendices, bibliography and index. From the publisher: "In October 1994, fifty-three members of the Order of the Solar Temple in Switzerland and Québec were murdered or committed suicide. This incident and two later group suicides in subsequent years played a pivotal role in inflaming the cult controversy in Europe, influencing the public to support harsher actions against non-traditional religions. Despite the importance of the Order of the Solar Temple, there are relatively few studies published in English. This book brings together the best scholarship on the Solar Temple including newly commissioned pieces from leading scholars, a selection of Solar Temple documents, and important previously published articles newly edited for inclusion within this book. This is the first book-length study of the Order of the Solar Temple to be published in English." Appears unread, thus book is in Fine condtion in near Fine mylar protected dust jacket (dust jacket has a tiny bit of chipping at upper edge at front corners, unclipped and otherwise near perfect).
