Publisher's Summary

Charles Manson was an unlikely messiah. Freshly paroled, he stumbled into San Francisco in 1967 just as thousands of impressionable young people were streaming into town for the Summer of Love.

Posing as a musician-cum-guru-cum-Christ-figure, Manson built a commune cult of hippies, consisting mainly of troubled young women. But what made this group set out on the four-week killing spree that claimed seven lives? Former journalism professor David J. Krajicek seeks to discover just that.

This book includes:

  •  Introduction into the counterculture of the '60s
  • In-depth profiles of Manson's followers
  • Breakdowns of each murder, including diary accounts, interviews, and legal testimonies from the killers themselves
  • An account of the events in Manson's own words
  • Insight into Manson's manipulations and psychology 

Set against events of the time - the sexual revolution, the civil rights movement, race riots, space exploration, rock music - this is the story of Flower Power gone to seed.

Mental Influence

I remember when these murders took place..it was horrible...his influence on those young people was absolutely unbelievable...so sad that innocent victims had to die that way.
