On November 18, 1978, in the name of "love," Jim Jones in Jonestown, Guyana, killed 907 people by cyanide and 5 other innocents by gunfire, including a US Congressman. "Jonestown Story Riveted the Public," headlined George Gallup. "The mass suicides and murders were the most widely followed event of 1978." In his novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four," George Orwell in 1949 predicted that the new type of totalitarianism descending on humankind would be "capture of the inner mind." Stanford psychology professor Philip Zimbardo said that "[t]he CIA would have to acknowledge that Jones succeeded where their MK-Ultra program failed in the ultimate control of the human mind." This memoir, 'Marked for Death: My War with Jim Jones the Devil of Jonestown," is authored by a Stanford Law School graduate, and reveals the "development" of Jim Jones from utopian to devil. It is a first-hand account of Jim Jones by his attorney, enemy, and postmortem target.
