Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Janja Lalich is Professor of Sociology at California State University, Chico, known for her study of the inner workings of cults. She was a member of the radical "Democratic Workers Party" for 11 years, a group she now considers a cult. Motivated by her personal history ("I wanted to figure out what the heck happened to me"), her research has focused on cults, specializing in charismatic authority, power relations, ideology, and social control. Lalich published her Ph.D. dissertation on "Bounded Choice: The Fusion of Personal Freedom and Self-Renunciation in Two Transcendent Groups" in 2000. It was later developed into the 2004 book Bounded Choice.show more
