บทคัดย่อ:

Based on more than two hundred personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists -- both famous and less well known -- and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his investigative skills to uncover the inner workings of the Church of Scientology: its origins in the imagination of science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard; its struggles to find acceptance as a legitimate (and legally acknowledged) religion; its vast, secret campaign to infiltrate the U.S. government; its treatment of critics; its phenomenal wealth; and its efforts to grow and prevail after the death of Hubbard. At the book's center are two men whom Wright brings to life to show how they have made Scientology what it is today: L. Ron Hubbard -- who invented a new religion tailor-made to prosper in the spiritually troubled post-World War II era. And his successor, David Miscavige -- given the task of preserving the church in the face of ongoing scandals and continual legal assaults. We learn about Scientology's esoteric cosmology; about the auditing process that determines an inductee's state of being, about the Bridge to Total Freedom, through which members gain eternal life. We see the ways in which the church pursues celebrities, such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta, and how such stars are exploited to advance the church's goals. We meet young idealists who joined the Sea Org, the church's clergy, whose members often enter as children, signing up with a billion-year contract and working with little pay in poor conditions. We meet men and women "disconnected" from friends and a family by the church's policy of shunning critical voices. And we discover, through many firsthand stories, the violence that has long permeated the inner sanctum of the church. In Going Clear, Wright examines what fundamentally makes a religion a religion, and whether Scientology is, in fact, deserving of the constitutional protections achieved in its victory over the IRS.
