HPB. The Extraordinary Life of Helena Blavatsky, Founder of the Modern Theosophical Movement

Cranston, Sylvia

 This volume commemorates the 100th anniversary of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s death. It is the first large-scale biography and "focuses on the teachings she transmitted as well as her life, for the latter cannot be understood apart from the former" (pp. xx-xxi). Over 600 letters were also consulted as well as some previously untranslated materials in Russian. Her influence in the East and the West, as well as her influence today, are presented in the seventh (and last) section, called "The Century After." Blavatsky has been called the "Mother of the New Age." There is a useful chronology at the start of the book.
