Scientology is especially important for its role in destroying the Cult Awareness Network (CAN). This chapter provides an historical overview of this conflict, particularly focusing on the events that led to the demise of the Cult Awareness Network. It describes their respective public strategies, tactics, and entanglements over a ten-year period until CAN, buried under a barrage of resource-consuming lawsuits, succumbed to bankruptcy.
