Book Club in September

Our book for September is The True Believer by Eric Hoffer.
http://www.amazon.com/True-Believer-Thoughts-Movements-Perennial-ebook/dp/B003TO5838/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408038195&sr=8-1&keywords=the+true+believer
This relatively short book is a classic on the nature of fanaticism. First published in 1951 it was referenced by Dwight Eisenhower in one of his speeches about world conditions. The book had a resurgence of interest after 9/11 as people tried to understand the thinking behind the WTC attacks and attackers. Hoffer considers mass movements from early Christianity to modern nationalism.
It should provide for an interesting discussion.
