Reviews

"Like many other alternative religions that burst onto the American scene in the 1960s and 1970s, Transcendental Meditation attracted thousands of followers but also a fair number of detractors. The interplay of meditators and local residents in the midwestern town of Fairfield, Iowa, where TM established its major American center, makes a fascinating case study of the impact of new religions on traditional American culture."--Timothy Miller, editor, Spiritual and Visionary Communities: Out to Save the World "Weber brings a journalist's eye for character and story to this engrossing account of Transcendental Meditation and the town--and lives--it transformed. Along the way he probes religious and cultural questions about tradition and change, healing, community, place, and much more. This book is a lively and eye-opening delight."--Matthew S. Hedstrom, University of Virginia
