This book explores the peer pressure and unbalanced power dynamics which were instrumental to the Jonestown massacre. The text is drawn from the transcript of the last tape recorded in Jonestown, in which a woman named Christine Miller tries to argue against Jim Jones's plan to commit "revolutionary suicide."
