LEVI, Ken. Violence and Religious Commitment: Implications of Jim Jones’s People’s Temple Movement.

((University Park, PA): The Pennsylvania State University Press, 1982. First edition. Octavo. 207 pages. An investigation into the People’s Temple Movement that questions whether the tragedy at Jonestown was “an isolated case,” or was it “an example of extremist cult behaviour that emerges in times of great social upheaval?” Includes an interesting first-hand account by a disillusioned former member who was murdered, reportedly by a People’s Temple ‘hit squad’ just after completing his tale. A near fine copy in dust jacket.
