THE HISTORY OF SCIENTOLOGYS EXPANSION
And with the iron curtain down, such formerly inaccessible nations as Russia, Hungary and what had been East Germany were soon reaching for L. Ron Hubbards technology. To meet their needs, a Sea Org liaison office opened in Russia, while teams flew in to deliver Mr. Hubbards educational and administrative technologies.
By the end of 1991, with those formerly Eastern-bloc nations now enjoying Mr. Hubbards materials, there were 74 countries offering Scientology. New translations followed and the number of translated titles rose to 422, available in 31 languages.
There were 1,039 Scientology organizations, missions and groups around the world the yearly number of Scientology book sales of 1967 were being exceeded every day. There were also 1.5 million auditing hours provided that year, and more auditing took place in just 12 days than occurred in the whole of 1967. A 1991 survey revealed that Dianetics and Scientology had become so widely known they were household words.
Impressive as those numbers were, they were but the beginning of a boom.
