Descripción

xvii, 622p., photo sections (snapshots, press photography), first edition [so stated] clothbacked boards, titled white spine with black boards in photographic dj. Rims of the spine are slightly browned, edges of textblock are foxed, otherwise very faintest signs of handling or age, the fine unclipped jacket is enclosed in a new archival-grade brodart to size. The perfect companion volume to Michael Meiers' Was Jonestown a CIA Medical Experiment. Not that Reiterman's is a conspiracy theory, but he's researched and written a huge indispensable book for theorists of any stripe whatsoever. This cataloguer has skimmed his text for the origin of the title Reiterman chose, has not found it except that JJ is noted to have had very black hair, cataloguer remembers only the allegation that "Raven" was an intelligence code name for Jones during a period when CIA routinely gave its agentry and programs bird names such as "Falcon" and "Project Bluebird").

Sinopsis:

The basis for the upcoming HBO miniseries and the "definitive account of the Jonestown massacre" (Rolling Stone) -- now available for the first time in paperback.

Tim Reiterman’s Raven provides the seminal history of the Rev. Jim Jones, the Peoples Temple, and the murderous ordeal at Jonestown in 1978.

This PEN Award–winning work explores the ideals-gone-wrong, the intrigue, and the grim realities behind the Peoples Temple and its implosion in the jungle of South America. Reiterman’s reportage clarifies enduring misperceptions of the character and motives of Jim Jones, the reasons why people followed him, and the important truth that many of those who perished at Jonestown were victims of mass murder rather than suicide.

This widely sought work is restored to print after many years with a new preface by the author, as well as the more than sixty-five rare photographs from the original volume.

About the Author:

Tim Reiterman is a prizewinning journalist who extensively covered Jonestown for the San Francisco Examiner. He was wounded in the Guyanese jungle airstrip attack that killed a U.S. congressman, plus three reporters, and a Peoples Temple defector. A longtime writer and editor at the Los Angeles Times, Reiterman worked for the past eight years as Northern California News Editor for the Associated Press and now heads AP’s global environmental reporting team. Reiterman originally published Raven in 1982. His collaborator John Jacobs was a widely respected journalist who died in 2000
