In The Language of the Heart, Trysh Travis explores the rich cultural history of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and its offshoots and the larger qrecovery movementq that has grown out of them. Moving from AA's beginnings in the mid-1930s as a men's fellowship that met in church basements to the thoroughly commercialized addiction treatment centers of today, Travis chronicles the development of recovery and examines its relationship to the broad American tradition of self-help, highlighting the roles that gender, mysticism, and bibliotherapy have played in that development.... enlightened attitudes toward individual women did not stop them from buying into the timehonored discourse of feminization. ... and the a#39;a#39;weak cup of teaa#39;a#39;; the a#39;a#39; watered-downa#39;a#39; and a#39;a#39;tangled-upa#39;a#39; meetings; even Tom P. Jr.a#39;s cartoon cow.
