Harrowing stories of history’s most brutal cult leaders—and their deadly followers

These are some of the names and the places that inspire fear and fascination in us all: Charles Manson, Jonestown, the Branch Davidians, Heaven’s Gate, Aum Shinrikyo. The idea of cults and their members captures our imaginations: “What is it about the leaders that makes people follow them?” and “What is it about the followers that allow them to be so easily lead?” The Editors of TIME-LIFE take us inside the minds of cult leaders and their followers in this new Special Edition, Killer Cults. Charles Manson and his “Family” are perhaps the most notorious, but history is filled with brutal cult leaders like Jim Jones, David Koresh, Marshall Applewhite, and Shoko Asahara. How do these men take hold of so many lives? Killer Cults provides a thought-provoking look at these leaders—charismatic, dictatorial, delusional, magnetic—and reveals both the psychology behind cults and the devastation they create. Packed with unforgettable images and as-it-happened reporting, this remarkable Special Edition examines how ordinary people fall under the spell of abusive cult leaders—and how they are driven to kill.
