Charles Manson, a famous criminal who had sponsored a wave of murders in the United States in the 1960s, died at the age of 83. A look back at the psychopathic guru's hallucinating journey. "Have you ever dreamed of a place you didn't remember going to?" asks ex-hippie Peter Fonda to a young woman fascinated by the sixties in Steven Soderbergh's The English in 1999. A place that may only exist in your imagination. A distant place, only half of which you remember when you woke up. When you were there, you knew the language, you knew how to handle it. That was the 1960s. No, not even that. Only 66 and the beginning of 67. That's all". And then what?

The gripping story of the real Charles Manson as told by his long-time prison administrator, counselor, unofficial press agent, and confidant, Ed George. “Throughout my life, people have asked me about Manson. . . . “Does he have hypnotic powers?” “Does he have a diabolical charisma?” . . . “Is he crazy?” My response is that for some people, the answer to all of the above is yes—except for the last question.” —Edward George Charles Manson was perhaps the most infamous criminal of the twentieth century. Convicted for orchestrating the shocking Tate-LaBianca murders in 1969, and for two other killings, there has been much written about him. But not many people knew him as well as Edward George, who over years of conversations with Manson as his prison administrator, counselor, unofficial “press agent,” and confidant, gained deep insight into Manson’s mind-set. In this updated edition of George’s riveting account, he illuminates the many sides of Manson: charismatic cult leader, master manipulator, calculated “showman,” sly trickster, and more. George and his coauthor, Dary Matera, begin by detailing the troubling events of Manson’s youth, the historic 1969 murders, and the subsequent trial that ended an era. They then pull back the curtain on the intense reality of Manson’s turbulent life behind bars and the events that have transpired since the initial publication of this book in 1999, including Manson’s death in 2017. Originally published as Taming the Beast: Charles Manson’s Life Behind Bars Praise for Taming the Beast “A valuable book which gives additional insights into the criminal mind of Charles Manson.” —Vincent Bugliosi, author of Helter Skelter “Charles Manson may be the most written about, commercially viable malefactor in American history, yet George and Matera offer a worthwhile new take on him in their jailhouse bio. . . . George came to know Manson’s whole rollicking gang in scary and intimate detail. He strives to understand Manson and his devotees and, spewing psychological and spiritual insights and plenty of witchy Masonoid details, succeeds in horrifying his readers.” —Booklist “What distinguishes George’s book is that it puts a human face on a man whose very name defines evil—revealing the personality hidden during television interviews.” —Alameda Journal “An ugly, ugly look at a man whose entire life has been a study in sickness. . . . Provide[s] a chilling glimpse of Family members like Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, who showed up at the prison regularly in her red cape.” —Kirkus Reviews

With a new epilogue updated from its hardcover edition titled Creepy Crawling: Charles Manson and the Many Lives of America's Most Infamous Family "Creepy crawling" was the Manson Family's practice of secretly entering someone's home, and without harming anyone, leaving only a trace of evidence that they had been there, some reminder that the sanctity of the private home had been breached. Now, author Jeffrey Melnick reveals just how much the Family creepy crawled their way through Los Angeles in the sixties and then on through American social, political, and cultural life for fifty years, firmly lodging themselves in our minds. Even now, it is almost impossible to discuss the sixties, teenage runaways, sexuality, drugs, music, California, or even the concept of family without referencing Manson and his "girls." Not just another Charles Manson history, Charles Manson's Creepy Crawl: The Many Lives of America's Most Infamous Family explores how the Family weren't so much outsiders as emblematic of the Los Angeles counterculture freak scene, and how Manson worked to connect himself to the mainstream of the time. Ever since they spent two nights killing seven residents of Los Angeles—what we now know as the "Tate-LaBianca murders"—the Manson family has rarely slipped from the American radar for long. From Emma Cline's The Girls to the TV show Aquarius, as well as two major films in 2019, including Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the family continues to find an audience. What is it about Charles Manson and his family that captivates us still? Author Jeffrey Melnick sets out to answer this question in this fascinating and compulsively readable cultural history of the Family and their influence from 1969 to the present.

"Both Rubacher and Manson are brilliant, intuitive, half-mad artists and psychologists/manipulators...only God knows why one uses his energy and talent for good and why one wastes it in evil. Rubacher is on to something." San Francisco Chronicle "Rubacher's journey to the heart of darkness was not without travail. During the two years he corresponded with Manson, Rubacher says, he endured threats from members of the family and from Manson. Manson ordered several family members to pay menacing visits to Rubacher at his home." Sacramento Bee "R&R, I may let you live. Then again, maybe not. Sweet dreams." Charles Manson "The author has incredible courage or is mad to involve himself with the psychopathic killer." Lawrence McLoughlin, Speakers Bureau, Pattaya Expats Club, Thailand "Charlie Manson is one of the most intriguing personalities in law enforcement history. To study him is to confront evil at its worst." Ret. Lt. H. Sigworth, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"Hunting Charles Manson the best true crime book you will ever read....Lock your doors, keep the night lights on, and read this book." - Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling crime novelist In the late summer of 1969, the nation was transfixed by a series of gruesome murders in the hills of Los Angeles. Newspapers and television programs detailed the brutal slayings of a beautiful actress--twenty six years old and eight months pregnant with her first child--as well as a hair stylist, an heiress, a businessman, and other victims. The City of Angels was plunged into a nightmare of fear and dread. In the weeks and months that followed, law enforcement faced intense pressure to solve crimes that seemed to have no connection. Finally, after months of dead-ends, false leads, and near-misses, Charles Manson and members of his "family" were arrested. The bewildering trials that followed once again captured the nation and forever secured Manson as a byword for the evil that men do. Drawing upon deep archival research and exclusive personal interviews--including unique access to Manson Family parole hearings--former federal prosecutor and Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl has written a propulsive, page-turning historical thriller of the crimes and manhunt that mesmerized the nation. And in the process, she reveals how the social and political context that gave rise to Manson is eerily similar to our own.

Fifty Years After the Sharon Tate/Labianca Murders, a New and Terrifying Investigation into the Modern Rebirth of Charles Manson’s Killer Family Perhaps the most notorious American murderer of the twentieth century, Charles Manson’s legacy extends far beyond his horrific crimes. As the wild-eyed, swastika-tattooed, nightmarishly charismatic leader of the Manson Family, he was convicted of the brutal killings of nine people in 1971 . . . including the Tate-LaBianca murders of seven in Los Angeles over two hot August nights in 1969. He spent the rest of his life in prison, and for the next fifty years preached his twisted philosophies from jail, attracting a whole new batch of freaks to his way of thinking. In The Last Charles Manson Tapes, authors Dylan Howard and Andy Tillett examine the Manson legacy. With brand new interviews with those closest to him, including Manson’s heirs, friends and followers, experts and historians, and hours of exclusive transcripts of Manson’s own manic preachings from his prison cell, you’ll get to view a side of this serial killer few have ever seen. Manson’s passing in 2017 has sparked into action a new generation of killer disciples, obsessed with the evil slaying spree he ordered and determined to carry on his “Helter Skelter” vision of an apocalyptic war. With the author’s on-the-ground investigation, learn how the man once described as “the most dangerous man in America” may yet live up to that name.
