A LONG, LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY...
John Travolta, 70's icon thanks to Welcome Back Kotter, Saturday Night Fever, and Grease, is enjoying an incredible comeback in critical and commercial smashes such as Pulp Fiction and Face Off. Speaking of Saturday Night Fever, the Bee Gees are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The biggest box-office attraction this spring was Star Wars, and The Eagles Greatest Hits, Volume One has now sold 24-million copies in the U.S.
It should be obvious by now that America is in the middle of a huge love affair with the seventies, the wacky and wild by-product of the sixties rebellion. But all is not well from that era of long ago. One ugly element of the seventies has resurfaced in the news recently: cults led by psychotic would-be dictators, a la Jim Jones and The People's Temple -- witness the Aum Supreme cult of Japan and the 39 Heaven's Gate "suicides."
The korporate media incessantly warn of the dire threat of uncontrolled cults preying on society, recently armed with a nefarious new ally: the Internet. The undercurrent of these notions is that something must be done about cult activity, lest more victims be devoured by suicidal sects.
But the mainstream media outlets which warn that we must do something about these cults are the same mainstream media which proved themselves to be unreliable sources of information on the events at Jonestown. An honest evaluation of the facts brings to light a story even more morbid than a mass suicide: the prospect that Jonestown was a CIA-linked mind control experiment which ultimately self-destructed, taking with it the first Congressman to be killed in the line of duty.

From the back of the book:
"This book is a vital document to be read by all who are interested in the horror and mystery hidden within the jungle of Guyana. An eyewitness account of events as they were viewed by a participant in the clean-up operation, The Ghosts of November is a long overdue journal on the Jonestown mass deaths. The rotting stench from Guyana hasn't gone away after 20 years: this book is as timely as ever."
Through years of perseverance, nearly 39,000 pages of federal documents on the Jonestown tragedy are now available for the first time. These documents shed new light -- and raise new questions -- on what really happened in a Guyana jungle two decades ago.
