Escaping Utopia : Growing Up in a Cult, Getting Out, and Starting Over, Paperback / softback Book

Escaping Utopia : Growing Up in a Cult, Getting Out, and Starting Over Paperback / softback

Description

We think of cults as bizarre, inexplicable, or otherworldly places that only strange people inhabit, but cults and other abusive and high-demand groups (and relationships) are actually quite commonplace.

In fact, the behaviors, social pressures, and authoritarian structures that create cults exist to a greater or lesser extent in every human relationship and every human group.

In the first in-depth research of its kind, the author interviewed sixty-five people who were born in or grew up in thirty-nine different cultic groups spanning more than a dozen countries.

What's especially interesting about these individuals is that they each left the cult on their own, without outside help or internal support.

In Escaping Utopia: Growing Up in a Cult, Getting Out, and Starting Over, the authors craft Lalich's original and groundbreaking research into an accessible and engaging book, the first of its kind focusing on this particular population.
