American Involvement in Fringe Religious Cults
Intellect, 105, 2382, 299-300, Mar 77
"Twenty million Americans are involved in fringe religious cults such as spiritualism, Hare Krishna, Scientology, and Black Gospel groups," according to anthropologist Irving Zaretsky of the University of Chicago. He recently completed a 10-year period as a participant-observer of fringe religious groups in the San Francisco Bay area and the Mid-Atlantic states. He challenges some common assumptions the public generally holds about these groups. (Editor/RK)
