Call Number: BL980.G3 A79 2006
Location: Library North 5
The author "traces the path of scholarship of new religious movements, exploring the development of research in this growing field. She considers academic and media interventions on both sides, with special emphasis on the problems of objectivity inherent in terminologies of "sects," "abduction" and "brainwashing." Ideal for students and researchers, this much-needed book takes the debate over new religious movements to a newly sophisticated level." -- Description from Amazon.com
