The Hindu-derived meditation movement, The Art of Living (AOL), founded in 1981 by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Bangalore, has grown into a global organization which claims presence in more than 150 countries. Stephen Jacobs presents the first comprehensive study of AOL as an important transnational movement and an alternative global spirituality. Exploring the nature and characteristics of spirituality in the contemporary global context, Jacobs considers whether alternative spiritualities are primarily concerned with individual wellbeing and can simply be regarded as another consumer product. The book concludes that involvement in movements such as AOL is not necessarily narcissistic but can foster a sense of community and inspire altruistic activity.

"The Art of Living" is the first large-scale analysis in English of Erich Fromm's life and his entire printed works. This study addresses both the specialist in a variety of disciplines (psychology, social sciences, philosophy) and a large lay readership. It is written in an appealing style and clearly delineates Fromm's career as a psychoanalyst and a writer, pinpointing the strengths and weaknesses in the work of one of this century's most influential thinkers. Fromm's unflagging insistence on a more humane world emerges here in full relevance for today's reader.
