About this item

Scholars of religion, often from a social science perspective, examine the Church of Scientology, arguable the most controversial of the new religious movements because of its involvement in a number of legal conflicts. After introductory essays, they cover Scientology and marketplace religion, controversy, media treatments, sex and gender, disaffiliation and schisms, and founder L. Ron Hubbard and his legacy. Among the topics are not an extraordinary group: Scientologists and Hungary and Germany--comparative survey data, the price of freedom: Scientology and neoliberalism, Scientology in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master (2012), sexuality in three ex-Scientology narratives, and the Citizens Commission on Human Rights and Scientology's war against psychiatry.
