Dr. W. Michael Ashcraft on "The Esoteric World of Madame Blavatsky"
Apr 17, 2006 09:22 AM
"Despite these [that is certain] criticisms [of the book],
I nonetheless recommend this book as an extremely useful
collection of primary documents about Blavatsky."
"There is nothing else in the literature about Theosophy's
history quite like it."
"The Esoteric World of Madame Blavatsky will undoubtedly
be a standard work in Blavatskian bibliographies for many years
"Not only will it provide the sources that future reseachers
need for their own work on Blavatsky....it will give the general
reader a vivid sense of Blavatsky as others knew and experienced
her....Caldwell helps us to appreciate, then, what this first
generation of Theosophists appreciated: the radical nature of
Blavatsky's affect on those around her...."
