Author Biography

David V Barrett has written numerous books on new religions and esoteric movements. His book The New Believers was described as an excellent guide to fringe religions that juxtaposes 'respectable' movements and those conventionally dismissed as cults (Daily Telegraph) and no-nonsense, comprehensive survey packed with non-judgemental information about the beliefs, aims and activities of such movements (Daily Mail). Michael Baigent wrote of A Brief History of Secret Societies : In a field normally typified by confusion and ignorance this book by David Barrett is clear, concise, informative and to be recommended. He has a PhD in the Sociology of Religion.
