Download Science, Sin, and Scholarship: The Politics of Reverend Moon and the Unification Church epub
by Irving Louis Horowitz
The New York Review of Books "Some of the essays are highly critical of Moon, including charges about his alleged connection with the Korean CIA, the anti-Jewish thrust of some of his writings, his extensive financial resources, and his controversial tactics in recruiting new members. Other essaysâ?especially the one by Frederick Sontagâ?commmend Moon. Editor Irving Horowitz, a well-respected professional sociologist, seeks to put the Unification Church into the perspective of American social history and includes his own chapter, which questions the appropriateness of Moon's sponsorship of the 1976 International Converence on the Unity of Sciences. This book, the first of its kind on Moon, is a well-balanced, highly valuable, comprehensive survey of an unusually aggressive contemporary religious sect." â?Choice "A valuable work of interdisciplinary scholarship and a useful demonstration that journalism and serious social science may peacefully cohabit the pages of the same book." â?Chronicle of Higher Education
"A collection of essays documenting the persistence with which Moon has infiltrated powerful groups in America, from the federal government to the universities. It is carefully edited by Irving L. Horowitz... and offers fine summations of the difficult constitutional issues raised by the current practice of kidnapping and deprogramming cult members... Excellent." â?
