Detroit: Gale Research Company, 1978. FIRST EDITION. A FINE CLOTH SET. Small folios, sewn and archival. Dr. Melton delivers most interesting information on the growth of religions and cults in the USA. Melton's knowledge and research into the byways of esotericism sets him apart from most religious scholars who have been far too dismissive of the effects of esoteric groups on the general culture. A section entitled "The Magick Family" has some rather unusual material on the OTO, OGD, Hubbard and Parsons. 1203 pages. (Item ID: 12255)
