Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review
Xinzhang Zhang and James R. Lewis, Editors
The Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review (ASRR) publishes articles, book reviews and review essays in the new religious movement (NRM) field. From Scientology to Falun Gong; Western Esoterism to neo-Shamanism; from popular religion in Japan to new religions in Korea, this journal aims for comprehensive coverage of the field. It also includes studies of new movements within traditional religions, such as the Charismatic movement in Christianity, Guru movements in Hinduism, so-called Xie Jiao in China, and millenarian movements in indigenous societies. Additionally, the ASRR examines certain quasi-religious phenomena, including implicit religion, yoga, qigong, UFO societies and spiritual healing. The journal is published biannually by Academic Publishing, Inc.
