The Road to Jonestown: Jim Jones and Peoples Temple
by Jeff Guinn

->->->->DOWNLOAD BOOK The Road to Jonestown: Jim Jones and Peoples Temple

By the New York Times bestselling author of Manson, the comprehensive, authoritative, and tragic story of preacher Jim Jones, who was responsible for the Jonestown Massacre—the largest murder-suicide in American history.<BR><BR>In the 1950s, a young Indianapolis minister named Jim Jones preached a curious blend of the gospel and Marxism. His congregation was racially integrated, and he was a much-lauded leader in the contemporary civil rights movement. Eventually, Jones moved his church, Peoples Temple, to northern California. He became involved in electoral politics, and soon was a prominent Bay Area leader.<BR> <BR>In this riveting narrative, Jeff Guinn examines Jones’s life, from his extramarital affairs, drug use, and fraudulent faith healing to the fraught decision to move almost a thousand of his followers to a settlement in the jungles of Guyana in South America. Guinn provides stunning new details of the events leading to the fatal day in November, 1978 when more than nine hundred people died—including almost three hundred infants and children—after being ordered to swallow a cyanide-laced drink.<BR> <BR>Guinn examined thousands of pages of FBI files on the case, including material released during the course of his research. He traveled to Jones’s Indiana hometown, where he spoke to people never previously interviewed, and uncovered fresh information from Jonestown survivors. He even visited the Jonestown site with the same pilot who flew there the day that Congressman Leo Ryan was murdered on Jones’s orders. The Road to Jonestown is the definitive book about Jim Jones and the events that led to the tragedy at Jonestown.

But I also figured that since it's been a number of years since I've done the reading, that this book would be a great refresher on the topic.more flag 7 likesLike see review The dead came from all walks of life and included many highly functional professionals; they werent exactly the dead-end wanderers whom Charlie Manson talked into killing for himMay 26, 2017 SheriC (Portable Magic) rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves: 7-other-fiction, 0-owned, 1-rec-by-friend, 4-format-audio, 5-rated-5-stars This was a thorough examination of the evolution of The Peoples Temple from its socialist ideals and Christian roots to a cult willing and able to commit the 1978 atrocity of mass suicide and murder of over 900 men, women, and childrennoBut she was sensitive to every word they spoke to or about her, always anticipating insultsNo one will ever know what happened but Jeff Guinn gives a stirring and truthful account of the life of Jim Jones.If this book peaks your interest I would suggest that you also read, A Thousand Lives by Julia ScheeresMovies 'Jonestown': Portrait of a Disturbed Cult Leader On trying to understand how 900 victims agreed to the suicide One of the things that's hardest for us to understand now, looking back almost 40 years, is how almost 900 people Unfortunately, he was also the kind of kid that would trick a puppy into walking out of a high window and falling to its deathHis message was less one of godliness, but of the need to integrate the races and help one another, all this in the late 1950s and into the 60s

Blacks who arrived and asked to be seated, even in places with many empty tables, were informed that advance reservations were requiredI read it more slowly than I usually do, not because the narrative isnt compelling, but because of the contentWhat happened in the past years and months that led to the mass suicide5 stars from me.I received an advance copy for reviewGetting through the last part of the book was dreadful business - this probably ranks among the most disturbing things I've ever read about, especially if one considers this was 1979, not the bloody Middle Ages! .more flag 4 likesLike see review View all 6 comments He was so effective in having his followers join him because of the impending nuclear holocaust that was sure to come from the Soviets, having recently been deterred during the Cuban Missile CrisisIf a U.SAs the fog lifted and they could see better, they got on the radio and reported back to Georgetown that something terrible had happened in Jonestown, something even worse than armed insurrection and the attack at the Port Kaituma airstrip

But that there was also much more nefarious and dark about other things that went on at Jones' direction too, right up to the final order for them all to dieI remember hearing about it on the car radio (when I was a youngen) yet not truly understanding the horrendous act until many years laterHe traveled to Joness Indiana hometown, where he spoke to people who have previously refused interviews, and also to Jonestown survivors, who offered fresh insight on the storyOver the years, Guyanese immigration officials had logged Americans as they arrived to join the Peoples Temple contingentAn example:Some nights, Jim would summon Ronnie and launch into long, graphic conversations about sexThe spot was about six miles from Port KaitumaI hate to say it, but at some points in this book I felt there were far too many apologist tones coming acrossNow the group totaled about 120Get your free lesson today!
