Good history of the messianism of Chabad from the Rebbe's death in 1994 to 2001, when the book was published. Alarmist, and a little outdated. I would be interested in what the author would have to say about the subject now, in 2011. Definitely makes you take a second look at the Lubavitchers who carry the "King Moshiach" yellow flags up and down the parks in Manhattan.

Note: Not all Lubavitchers are Messianists.
