My dissertation research touches on Madame Blavatsky and Theosophical history and this book has been incredibly helpful. Dr. Goodrick-Clarke provides insightful background to this formidable author and spiritual guide. Her work has greatly influenced contemporary spirituality, and scholars of religion would do well to at least acquaint themselves with her life and work. It's not necessary to like Blavatsky to enjoy this book. I am not a Theosophist or follower of Blavatsky, but do understand her seminal place in modern religious history. Dr. Goodrick-Clarke (who holds a PhD in history from Oxford University) is one of the foremost authorities on Western esotericism in the world and currently a professor at the University of Exeter in the UK. He has penned the best introduction to Madame Blavatsky currently available and his insights are priceless. I highly recommend it!

This is a very good introduction to the life and work of Blavatsky, the founder of the Theosophical Society. The author does a great job of clarifying her teachings and elucidating her most fascinating biography.

Gary Reichenbacher is a Christian with apparently nothing better to do than write bad reviews for books he hasn't read...in a backwoods attempt to save us all from the abysmal pits of hell...which is where we'll all end up should we decide to read the aforementioned books. If you share his narrow view of philosophy chances are you're illiterate and not looking to buy any of the books he's reviewed in the first place. If you are a free thinker looking to expand your spiritual and intellectual horizons then you should take all of his bad reviews as further proof that you'll enjoy the book.

Format: Paperback
Helena Blavatsky is one of the most enigmatic figures of the nineteenth century and her legacy continues today. Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke edited this wonderful introduction to the voluminous work of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. Her two most famous works are Isis Unveiled and the Secret Doctrine, each comprises two volumes and over one thousand pages each. Blavatsky covers almost every spiritual tradition known to man from Hinduism to Buddhism and Christianity to Kabbalah. I had to write two papers on Blavatsky for my MA in Western Esotericism at the University of Exeter. Blavatsky's work is complex and rich in content, many have accused her of plagiarizing some of the content among other things but the importance of her work cannot be underestimated. I would highly recommend reading this book before engaging in either of her aforementioned works.
