Hello Don,

Well, I myself am certainly interested. I have not yet received the book and there are others, by Helen Hardacre and Emily Ooms, which deal with Omoto and/or Japan's 'new' religions. I am curious to see how N Stalker improves on Nadolski's treatment.

I will be interested to see her treatment of the years from 1919 to 1935, especially the doctrinal changes from 1921 till the Second Suppression. This is the period when Morihei Ueshiba was fashioning the terminology of his own mission in the world.

Best wishes,

PAG
