Popular Studies

609. The Advisor. Lexington, Mass.: American Family Foundation, 1979- .

A tabloid publication with a strong anticult stance. Very good source for news items from small newspapers throughout the country. Reports on scholarly studies also included. An insert, "The Collegiate Advisor," reports on cult activities on college campuses. Published bimonthly.

610. Adler Margot. Drawing Down the Moon: Witches, Druids, Goddess-Worshippers, and Other Pagans in America Today. New York: Viking Press, 1979.

Fascinating look at Neo-Paganism in America today. The author visited a variety of groups and offers a thoughtful analysis of what's going on and the current literature. Easily understood by the general reader, Adler's work is particularly valuable because it is the only extended description of groups generally ignored. Appendices include rituals and resources, the latter (addresses of people, places, and newsletters) necessarily out of date by now. Notes provide suggestions for further reading. Index.

611. Anderson Walt. Open Secrets: A Western Guide to Tibetan Buddhism. New York: Viking Press, 1979.

Good, popular introduction intended to render Buddhism intelligible to Westerners; uses parallels in Western thought. Basic ideas, illustrated exercises, and meditation practices are presented, mostly as taught at the Nyingma Institute in Berkeley, so much material concerns Tantric Buddhism. Discusses scriptures of several Buddhist lineages. Brief glossary of common terms, notes, and index.
