40 years ago the nation was shocked when reports first emerged that Congressman Leo Ryan and four others were shot and killed on a remote airstrip in Guyana, hours before 909 members of the Peoples Temple church died in a mass murder-suicide.

UC Davis and UC Santa Cruz sociology professor John Hall authored the book Gone from the Promised Land: Jonestown in American Cultural History. He spoke to KCBS Radio Melissa Culross about what led up to that day.
