Japan's new and 'new, new' religious movements which have established themselves in the West are both expanding and in general highly active. Among the best known are Soka Gakkai International, Mahikari, Seicho no Ie, the MOA Foundation, Tenrikyo and Risshokoseikai. Though invariably deriving their inspiration from traditional sources, as a group they share distinct characteristics: they all stress the importance of pacifism, environmental care and protection and world transformation. They also all claim to heal, that all followers will receive benefits in this life and that, in most cases, Japan is the promised land. This volume, which also offers a valuable insight into some of the cultural values of contemporary Japan, is the first to address the subject in any detail, and includes contributions from a number of distinguished scholars from Europe and the United States.

New Religious Movements (NRMs) can involve vast numbers of followers and in many cases are radically changing the way people understand and practice religion and spirituality. Moreover, many are having a profound impact on the form and content of mainstream religion. The Encyclopedia of New Religious Movements provides uniquely global coverage of the phenomenon, with entries on over three-hundred movement from almost every country in the world. Coverage includes movements that derive from the major religions of the world and to neo-traditional movements, movements often overlooked in the study of NRMs. In addition to the coverage of particular movements there are also entries on topics, themes, key thinkers and key ideas, for example the New Age Movement, Neo-Paganism, New Religion and gender, NRMs and cyberspace, NRMs and the law, the Anti-Cult Movement, Swedenborg, Jung, Teilhard de Chardin, Lovelock, Gurdjieff, al-Banna, Qutb. The marked global approach and comprehensiveness of the encyclopedia enable an appreciation of the innovative energy of NRMs, of their extraordinary diversity, and the often surprising ways in which they can propagate geographically. The most ambitions publication of its sort, the Encyclopedia of New Religious Movements is a major addition to the reference literature for students and researchers of the field in religious studies and the social sciences. Entries are cross-referenced with short bibliographies for further reading. There is a full index.

These are: Japanese religiosity; religion and the state; traditional religious institutions, decline and adaptation; new religious movements. A particular strength of this collection is the combination of current Japanese and Western scholarship. ' ... Highly recommended ... '"--Journal of Asian Studies.
