 About the Book 

Drawing on the thesis he presented in his own 1998 dissertation and on perspectives that have emerged subsequently, Possamai (sociology, U. of Western Sydney, Australia) argues that the term New Age is used as a single descriptor for a range of distinguishable religious phenomena that comprise a family of which New Age is but a single member. He focuses on a localized ethnography in Melbourne, tailors the notion of an enduring substantive core to the Australian context, and offers a localized ethnography of the diversity of alternative spiritualities in the city.
