A detailed look at the sexual politics and the roles of women in seven New Religious Movements in the 1970s and 1980s, both familiar (ISKCON, the Unification Church, Rajneesh, the Raelians) and unfamiliar (Winifred Barton's IAM, E.J. Gold's IDHHB, the Messianic Community now known as Twelve Tribes). Fascinating stuff, highly recommended.
