>
> FROM THE PUBLISHER
> Stephen A. Kent takes a provocative look at the early 1970s -- an  
> often overlooked yet colorful period when the Vietnam War and  
> student protests were on the wane as new religious groups grew in  
> size and visibility. Certainly, religious strains were evident  
> throughout postwar popular culture from the 1950s Beat generation  
> into the 1960s drug counter-culture, but the explosion of  
> nontraditional religions during the early 1970s was unprecedented.
> Kent maintains that the failure of political activism led many  
> former radicals to become involved with groups such as the Hare  
> Krishnas, Scientology, Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church, the  
> Jesus movement, and the Children of God. Drawing on scholarly  
> literature, alternative press reportage, and personal narratives,  
> Kent shows how numerous activists turned from psychedelia and  
> political activism to guru worship and spiritual quest both as a  
> response to the failures of social protest and as a new means of  
> achieving societal change.
> SYNOPSIS
> Drawing from his own memories, from published accounts of the anti- 
> war movement during the 1960s and early 1970s, and interviews with  
> people who when through the process, Kent (sociology, U. of  
> Alberta) details how political radicals suddenly transformed  
> themselves into political adherents to various exotic and often  
> obscure religious sects.

> FROM THE CRITICS
> Publishers Weekly
> In this lucid and economical study, sociologist Kent examines a  
> little-noted confluence: the same years that saw American youth  
> delving into radical politics and protesting war also saw them turn  
> to unusual, sometimes cultish, spiritual traditions. Kent  
> challenges traditional scholarship by arguing that such conversions  
> to alternative religious traditions marked "a crisis of means," not  
> a "a crisis of meaning," as has often been assumed. Political  
> activism, says Kent, was meant to accomplish something: above all,  
> to end the Vietnam War. When it became increasingly apparent that  
> countercultural politics were not, in fact, achieving the desired  
> ends, activists discovered other methods in new religious groups.  
> That a disaffected generation should turn to spirituality is not  
> surprising; that it should do so for political reasons is indeed  
> interesting. Just as useful as Kent's provocative (if overly  
> functionalist) argument is his descriptive ethnography of many of  
> the religious paths that became prominent during the 1970s the Hare  
> Krishnas, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, the Unification  
> Church and the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization. This book's  
> import goes far beyond the seemingly narrow scope of its subject;  
> when coupled with the recent work of Christian Smith (Divided by  
> Faith and Disruptive Religion), Kent's study promises to reshape  
> and reinvigorate the very language we use to discuss the nexus  
> between religion and politics in America. (Dec.) Copyright 2001

> Books on countercultural religion in the United States in the 1960s  
> and 1970s are just now being published. Here, Kent (sociology,  
> Univ. of Alberta, Canada) analyzes the religious movements that  
> took root among young people in the United States toward the end of  
> the Vietnam War era. He traces the cultural changes some U.S. youth  
> experienced as they moved from the political protests of the  
> Sixties to mystical religious conversions in the early Seventies.  
> The book provides a catalog of religious options that were pursued  
> by those who had been dedicated to "the revolution," all of which  
> fall into the categories of the cultic, occult, or Eastern  
> religions. A section on psychedelic drug-enhanced religious  
> experiences typifies the type of material covered in this study.  
> Kent admits that a shift to religion was not the only transition  
> possible some instead chose the women's movement, gay rights,  
> ecology, rural living, and other social movements. And he  
> recognizes that not everyone will agree that the transition to  
> religion was a good one. The catalog of persons and experiences  
> documented here will not be familiar to many historians, and much  
> of it will fall outside the realm of study for religious scholars.  
> Nevertheless, this study, which utilizes sources such as personal  
> narratives and the alternative press, is recommended for academic  
> and public libraries. James A. Overbeck, Atlanta-Fulton P.L.,

11px;">Stephen A. Kent takes a provocative look at the early 1970s  
&gt; -- an often overlooked yet colorful period when the Vietnam War and  
&gt; student protests were on the wane as new religious groups grew in  
&gt; size and visibility. Certainly, religious strains were evident  
&gt; throughout postwar popular culture from the 1950s Beat generation  
&gt; into the 1960s drug counter-culture, but the explosion of  
&gt; nontraditional religions during the early 1970s was unprecedented.</   >

11px;"&gt;Kent maintains that the failure of  
&gt; political activism led many former radicals to become involved with  
&gt; groups such as the Hare Krishnas, Scientology, Sun Myung Moon's  
&gt; Unification Church, the Jesus movement, and the Children of God.  
&gt; Drawing on scholarly literature, alternative press reportage, and  
&gt; personal narratives, Kent shows how numerous activists turned from  
&gt; psychedelia and political activism to guru worship and spiritual  
&gt; quest both as a response to the failures of social protest and as a  
&gt; new means of achieving societal change.</SPAN></FONT></DIV><DIV    >

size="3"&gt;<SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-   > size: 11px;">In 
this lucid and economical study, sociologist Kent  
&gt; examines a little-noted confluence: the same years that saw  
&gt; American youth delving into radical politics and protesting war  
&gt; also saw them turn to unusual, sometimes cultish, spiritual  
&gt; traditions. Kent challenges traditional scholarship by arguing that  
&gt; such conversions to alternative religious traditions marked "a  
&gt; crisis of means," not a "a crisis of meaning," as has often been  
&gt; assumed. Political activism, says Kent, was meant to accomplish  
&gt; something: above all, to end the Vietnam War. When it became  
&gt; increasingly apparent that countercultural politics were not, in  
&gt; fact, achieving the desired ends, activists discovered other  
&gt; methods in new religious groups. That a disaffected generation  
&gt; should turn to spirituality is not surprising; that it should do so  
&gt; for political reasons is indeed interesting. Just as useful as  
&gt; Kent's provocative (if overly functionalist) argument is his  
&gt; descriptive ethnography of many of the religious paths that became  
&gt; prominent during the 1970s the Hare Krishnas, Transcendental  
&gt; Meditation, Scientology, the Unification Church and the Healthy,  
&gt; Happy, Holy Organization. This book's import goes far beyond the  
&gt; seemingly narrow scope of its subject; when coupled with the recent  
&gt; work of Christian Smith (Divided by Faith and Disruptive Religion),  
&gt; Kent's study promises to reshape and reinvigorate the very language  
&gt; we use to discuss the nexus between religion and politics in  
&gt; America. (Dec.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.</   >

on countercultural religion in the United States  
&gt; in the 1960s and 1970s are just now being published. Here, Kent  
&gt; (sociology, Univ. of Alberta, Canada) analyzes the religious  
&gt; movements that took root among young people in the United States  
&gt; toward the end of the Vietnam War era. He traces the cultural  
&gt; changes some U.S. youth experienced as they moved from the  
&gt; political protests of the Sixties to mystical religious conversions  
&gt; in the early Seventies. The book provides a catalog of religious  
&gt; options that were pursued by those who had been dedicated to "the  
&gt; revolution," all of which fall into the categories of the cultic,  
&gt; occult, or Eastern religions. A section on psychedelic drug- 
&gt; enhanced religious experiences typifies the type of material  
&gt; covered in this study. Kent admits that a shift to religion was not  
&gt; the only transition possible some instead chose the women's  
&gt; movement, gay rights, ecology, rural living, and other social  
&gt; movements. And he recognizes that not everyone will agree that the  
&gt; transition to religion was a good one. The catalog of persons and  
&gt; experiences documented here will not be familiar to many  
&gt; historians, and much of it will fall outside the realm of study for  
&gt; religious scholars. Nevertheless, this study, which utilizes  
&gt; sources such as personal narratives and the alternative press, is  
&gt; recommended for academic and public libraries. James A. Overbeck,
