Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Harvey is probably best known for Hidden Journey (Viking, 1991), in which he details his spiritual surrender to the Indian mystic Mother Meera. He has since found in the mystic poetry of the 13th-century Sufi master Rumi a distillation of the message that he believes Mother Meera embodies and that the world cannot afford to ignore. ``I believe we are all in the last moments of a civilization,'' Harvey writes. ``What is at stake is the whole human experiment.'' Some will find this fixation on the imminent apocalypse distracting. Taken from a series of lectures given in 1993, the book is probably of greatest interest to those having some prior familiarity with the poetry. Harvey's passion and enthusiasm often lead to hyperbole, and his interpretation of Rumi, while compelling, needs to be absorbed slowly and with a critical eye. For collections with an interest in Sufism or mysticism in general.-Mark Woodhouse, Elmira Coll. Lib., N.Y.
