Jonestown in the Shadow of Maslow's Pyramid.
Easley, Edgar M.; Wigglesworth, David C.
Humanist, v34 n4 p41-43 Jul-Aug 1979
Reviews Maslow's hierarchy of needs in the light of the Jonestown tragedy. Maintains that members of the People's Temple felt frustrated in attaining the lower levels in the world of reality, and so moved outside the pyramid in search of the top, self-actualization. In the process, their primary needs were met. Journal availability: see SO 507 272. (Author/CK)
