How does a religious cult seize control of a German city and convert thousands of people to polygamy? In New Jerusalem Paul Ham explores the persuasive power of a few self-appointed prophets at a time of great upheaval.

He has co-written and/or narrated two ABC documentaries based on his books. A former correspondent for the Sunday Times, Paul was born in Sydney and educated in Australia and Britain.
