Recensioner i media

"Easily the most comprehensive, erudite, and timely book in print to explore authoritarianism in religion, institutions, power, the family, intimacy and sexual relations, and personal problems such as addiction....Argue[s] persuasively that any system of values that places tradition and the past above the imperative to question the present is destined to become increasingly lethal."<br>--Keith Thompson of The San Francisco Chronicle Book Review <br>"Spells out at length the dangers of becoming addicted to another's authority in any sphere of life."<br>--"London Times Literary Supplement" <br>"A thorough, wide-ranging analysis of the way power has historically been maintained...Purports to be no less than a diagnosis of what's wrong with the world and how, not merely to fix it, but to save it. Its thesis is elegant and nearly unlimited in its ramifications...[Shows that] authoritarianism is not merely a political phenomenon. It's part of the way we think."<br>--"The New Mexican" <br>"Discusses how authoritarian leaders manipulate followers and why people surrender to them."<br>--"Publishers Weekly" <br>"Provocative and thorough....Unmask[s] the countless manifestations of authoritarianism in our contemporary culture. Cover[s] vast territory...rais[es] all the vitally important questions...It should definitely be placed in the hands of anyone who has been, or is, or contemplates becoming involved with a guru or cult."<br>--"Yoga Journal" <br>"Don't be deceived by the title. "The Guru Papers" is about much more than cult groups. A profoundly important critique of the covert authoritarianism of most religions...and of such cultural values as unconditional love, addiction, and twelve-stepprograms...Thought-provoking and radically important...Extraordinarily rich and complex...[It]can make an important contribution to [changing the old paradigms] if enough people...take it to heart and mind."<br>--"Liberty"
