"The Secret World of Cults looks at some of the more infamous and extraordinary examples of these groups, from the first centuries to medieval times, right up to the present day. not only have we witnessed a recent rise in the number of doomsday cults, all predicting the end of the world sometime after the year 2000, but a revival of ancient orders seems also to be taking place, with an increased interest in secret societies and pagan beliefs.
Drawing together historical fact, rumours of conspiracies, links to the Holy Grail and other mysteries, The Secret World of Cults gives a unique insight into the usually furtive world of underground societies. Why do people join these organisations? Who are the powerful and charismatic leaders? What are their links to world governments and people in power? And why do cult members agree to mass murder and suicide?"
