Summary
Love Them to Death is the same book as Marked for Death, published in 2015, but with a new title, new cover, amplifications, new photographs, and back-cover endorsements: "Stoen's deeply moving memoir"--Publishers Weekly; "Buy the Book. The man Jim Jones hated most speaks. ... The fascinating book reads, like accounts of the demise of Jonestown itself, as unbelievable but true"--Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator; & "A true heartfelt confession that reads like a John Grisham thriller"--Brian McDonough, Writer News. "Love Them to Death is a memoir of my experiences as the attorney, enemy, and postmortem target of James Warren Jones who, on November 18, 1978 in Jonestown, Guyana, unleashed--in the name of 'love'--terror and death. It tells how this ordinary man, Jim Jones, having captured the souls of kind and decent people, got them to assassinate a US congressman and, incredibly, got them--by the hundreds--to kill themselves and their children. 'The mass suicides and murders in Jonestown, Guyana,' said pollster George Gallup, 'was the most widely followed event of 1978.' By then Jim Jones had become a 'Molotov cocktail.' The container was Jones's absolute power. The flammable liquid was Jones's malignant narcissism. The wick was Jones's genius for mind control. 'The CIA would have had to acknowledge,' said Stanford psychology professor Philip Zimbardo, 'that Jones succeeded where their MK-Ultra program failed in the ultimate control of the human mind.' On January 1, 1970, I joined a utopian movement called Peoples Temple, in order to pursue 'Biblical socialism' (Acts 2). I became the pro bono lawyer for Jones for 7 years. Jim Jones eventually became what the 'Washington Post' called a 'West Coast Power,' with a remarkable gift for wining over the most sophisticated people in politics. On November 18, 1977, I testified in court and went to war against Jones"--Amazon
