A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher <br />transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable <br />account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in <br />the example, affect the fund's investment results. During the most recent fiscal year, <br />the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 16% of the average value of its portfolio.</tt> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.klgates.com/role/ExpenseExample_S000009613Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.klgates.com/role/BarChartData_S000009613Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <tt>The fund's primary investment objective is to provide you with long-term <br />growth of capital.</tt> <tt>This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the fund <br />with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. <br /><br />The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the fund for the time periods<br />indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The<br />example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that <br />the fund's operating expenses remain the same.</tt> <tt>The fund seeks to take advantage of investment opportunities generated by changes <br />in international trade patterns and economic and political relationships by <br />investing in common stocks of companies located around the world.<br /> <br />In pursuing its primary investment objective, the fund invests primarily in common <br />stocks that the investment adviser believes have the potential for growth. In <br />pursuing its secondary objective, the fund invests in common stocks of companies <br />with the potential to pay dividends in the future.<br /> <br />The investment adviser uses a system of multiple portfolio counselors in managing <br />the fund's assets. Under this approach, the portfolio of the fund is divided into <br />segments managed by individual counselors who decide how their respective segments <br />will be invested.<br /> <br />The fund relies on the professional judgment of its investment adviser to make<br />decisions about the fund's portfolio investments. The basic investment philosophy <br />of the investment adviser is to seek to invest in attractively valued companies <br />that, in its opinion, represent good, long-term investment opportunities. The <br />investment adviser believes that an important way to accomplish this is through <br />fundamental analysis, which may include meeting with company executives and <br />employees, suppliers, customers and competitors. Securities may be sold when the <br />investment adviser believes that they no longer represent relatively attractive <br />investment opportunities.</tt> New Perspective Fund® <tt>Future income is a secondary objective.</tt> You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $25,000 in American Funds. Example After-tax returns are calculated using the highest individual federal income tax rates in effect during each year of the periods shown and do not reflect the impact of state and local taxes. Investment objectives Past investment results (before and after taxes) are not predictive of future investment results. The Lipper Global Funds Index includes the fund and other funds that disclose investment objectives and/or strategies reasonably comparable to the fund's objective and/or strategies. The S&P 500 is a measure of the U.S. portion of the world market. It is included to compare the fund's results to U.S. market results. You may lose money by investing in the fund. Principal risks Shareholder fees (fees paid directly from your investment) Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be: 0.16 Your actual after-tax returns depend on your individual tax situation and likely will differ from the results shown above. In addition, after-tax returns are not relevant if you hold your fund shares through a tax-favored arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan, individual retirement account (IRA) or 529 college savings plan.

You may lose money by investing in the fund. The likelihood <br />of loss may be greater if you invest for a shorter period of time. Investors in <br />the fund should have a long-term perspective and be able to tolerate potentially <br />sharp declines in value.<br /> <br />Market conditions -- The prices of, and the income generated by, the securities<br />held by the fund may decline due to market conditions and other factors, including <br />those directly involving the issuers of securities held by the fund.<br /> <br />Investing in growth-oriented stocks -- Growth-oriented stocks may involve larger<br />price swings and greater potential for loss than other types of investments.<br /> <br />Investing outside the United States -- Securities of issuers domiciled outside the <br />United States, or with significant operations outside the United States, may lose <br />value because of adverse political, social, economic or market developments in <br />the countries or regions in which the issuer operates. These securities may also <br />lose value due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates against the U.S. <br />dollar and/or currencies of other countries. Securities markets in certain<br />countries may be more volatile and/or less liquid than those in the United States. <br />Investments outside the United States may also be subject to different settlement <br />and accounting practices and different regulatory, legal and reporting standards, <br />and may be more difficult to value, than those in the United States. The risks <br />of investing outside the United States may be heightened in connection with <br />investments in emerging markets.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />Management -- The investment adviser to the fund actively manages the fund's<br />investments. Consequently, the fund is subject to the risk that the methods <br />and analyses employed by the investment adviser in this process may not <br />produce the desired results. This could cause the fund to lose value or its <br />investment results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar <br />objectives.<br /> <br />Your investment in the fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or<br />guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other<br />governmental agency, entity or person. You should consider how this fund <br />fits into your overall investment program.</tt> Fees and expenses of the fund After-tax returns are shown only for Class A shares; after-tax returns for other share classes will vary.

Risk Return [Abstract] rr_RiskReturnAbstract  
Risk/Return [Heading] rr_RiskReturnHeading New Perspective Fund®
Objective [Heading] rr_ObjectiveHeading Investment objectives
Objective, Primary [Text Block] rr_ObjectivePrimaryTextBlock The fund's primary investment objective is to provide you with long-term
growth of capital.
Objective, Secondary [Text Block] rr_ObjectiveSecondaryTextBlock Future income is a secondary objective.
Expense [Heading] rr_ExpenseHeading Fees and expenses of the fund
Expense Narrative [Text Block] rr_ExpenseNarrativeTextBlock This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy and hold
shares of the fund. You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your
family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $25,000 in American
Funds. More information about these and other discounts is available from your
financial professional and in the "Sales charge reductions and waivers" section
on page 26 of the prospectus and on page 60 of the fund's statement of additional
information.
Shareholder Fees Caption [Text] rr_ShareholderFeesCaption Shareholder fees (fees paid directly from your investment)
Operating Expenses Caption [Text] rr_OperatingExpensesCaption Annual fund operating expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment)
Portfolio Turnover [Heading] rr_PortfolioTurnoverHeading Portfolio turnover
Portfolio Turnover [Text Block] rr_PortfolioTurnoverTextBlock The fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities
(or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher
transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable
account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in
the example, affect the fund's investment results. During the most recent fiscal year,
the fund's portfolio turnover rate was 16% of the average value of its portfolio.
Portfolio Turnover, Rate rr_PortfolioTurnoverRate 16.00%
Expense Breakpoint Discounts [Text] rr_ExpenseBreakpointDiscounts You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $25,000 in American Funds.
Expense Breakpoint, Minimum Investment Required [Amount] rr_ExpenseBreakpointMinimumInvestmentRequiredAmount 25,000
Expense Example [Heading] rr_ExpenseExampleHeading Example
Expense Example Narrative [Text Block] rr_ExpenseExampleNarrativeTextBlock This example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the fund
with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.

The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the fund for the time periods
indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The

Strategy [Heading] rr_StrategyHeading Principal investment strategies
Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock The fund seeks to take advantage of investment opportunities generated by changes
in international trade patterns and economic and political relationships by
investing in common stocks of companies located around the world.

In pursuing its primary investment objective, the fund invests primarily in common
stocks that the investment adviser believes have the potential for growth. In
pursuing its secondary objective, the fund invests in common stocks of companies
with the potential to pay dividends in the future.

The investment adviser uses a system of multiple portfolio counselors in managing
the fund's assets. Under this approach, the portfolio of the fund is divided into
segments managed by individual counselors who decide how their respective segments
will be invested.

The fund relies on the professional judgment of its investment adviser to make
decisions about the fund's portfolio investments. The basic investment philosophy
of the investment adviser is to seek to invest in attractively valued companies
that, in its opinion, represent good, long-term investment opportunities. The
investment adviser believes that an important way to accomplish this is through
fundamental analysis, which may include meeting with company executives and
employees, suppliers, customers and competitors. Securities may be sold when the
investment adviser believes that they no longer represent relatively attractive
investment opportunities.
Risk [Heading] rr_RiskHeading Principal risks
Risk Narrative [Text Block] rr_RiskNarrativeTextBlock This section describes the principal risks associated with the fund's principal
investment strategies. You may lose money by investing in the fund. The likelihood
of loss may be greater if you invest for a shorter period of time. Investors in
the fund should have a long-term perspective and be able to tolerate potentially
sharp declines in value.

Market conditions -- The prices of, and the income generated by, the securities
held by the fund may decline due to market conditions and other factors, including
those directly involving the issuers of securities held by the fund.

Investing in growth-oriented stocks -- Growth-oriented stocks may involve larger
price swings and greater potential for loss than other types of investments.

Investing outside the United States -- Securities of issuers domiciled outside the
United States, or with significant operations outside the United States, may lose
value because of adverse political, social, economic or market developments in
the countries or regions in which the issuer operates. These securities may also
lose value due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates against the U.S.
dollar and/or currencies of other countries. Securities markets in certain
countries may be more volatile and/or less liquid than those in the United States.
Investments outside the United States may also be subject to different settlement
and accounting practices and different regulatory, legal and reporting standards,
and may be more difficult to value, than those in the United States. The risks
of investing outside the United States may be heightened in connection with
investments in emerging markets.
  
Management -- The investment adviser to the fund actively manages the fund's
investments. Consequently, the fund is subject to the risk that the methods
and analyses employed by the investment adviser in this process may not
produce the desired results. This could cause the fund to lose value or its
investment results to lag relevant benchmarks or other funds with similar
objectives.

Your investment in the fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or
guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other
governmental agency, entity or person. You should consider how this fund
fits into your overall investment program.
