Ernest Kurtz has been the outstanding thinker of the A.A. tradition's second generation, the one who played a constant leadership role in pushing the movement towards the highest professional standards of history writing and supplied some of its most influential interpretive concepts. His ideas are vitally important for anyone who wishes to understand A.A. history during the period following Bill Wilson's death in 1971. As a Ph.D. student at Harvard University in the 1970's, he was the first researcher to be granted full access to the archives of Alcoholics Anonymous. The book that resulted, Not-God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous (1979), is still the classic work on early A.A. history. His book on the spiritual life-Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham, The Spirituality of Imperfection: Modern Wisdom from Classic Stories (1992)-is equally well known, and has also been an enduring best seller through the years since it appeared. His work on Shame & Guilt (orig. pub. 1981, rev. ed. 2007) has given a whole new depth to the discussion of those two vital recovery issues. This present book, containing twelve key articles written by Kurtz between 1982 and 1996, gives us a fourth volume from his hand, displaying the impressive range and breadth of his thought on alcoholism, addiction, and spirituality. "Here under one cover is Kurtz at his best: historian, gadfly, teacher, interpreter, and master storyteller This is must reading for any student of Alcoholics Anonymous and the evolution of spirituality in America." -William L. White, author of Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery in America

"A celebration of the varieties of recovery experience." From the foreword by William L. White, author, "Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery in America." "There are many versions of the 12-Step program of recovery. In fact, there are about as many versions as there are alcoholics in AA who use the program to get sober and to maintain their sobriety." Thus begins "The Little Book: A Collection of Alternative 12 Steps." Inside: * Twenty alternative versions of the 12 Steps reflecting a wide range of philosophical, professional, religious, and cultural perspectives and traditions. * Four interpretations of each of the Steps by well-known authors Stephanie Covington ("A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps"), Therese Jacobs-Stewart ("Mindfulness and the 12 Steps"), Allen Berger ("The Therapeutic Value of the 12 Steps") and Gabor Mate ("In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts"). * Templates so the reader can write her or his own personal alternative 12 Steps as well as record insights into - and interpretations of - each of the Steps. * An essay that accurately and insightfully traces the origins of the AA 12-Step recovery program. The Little Book is a celebration of the many ways people are today adapting and interpreting the original 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in order to achieve a "personality change sufficient to bring about recovery from alcoholism." "A beautiful testimony to AA's living history." Ernest Kurtz, author, "Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous."
