• Ghost Land: Researches Into the Mysteries of Occultism by Emma Hardinge Britten
• The Theosophical Enlightenment (State University of New York Press, 1994.) by Joscelyn GodwinThese researches are illustrated in a series of autobiographical sketches which were collated from private memorabilia at the request of Ms. Britten. They introduce such scenes of the author's own life experience as will show what a cast amount of phenomena remains to be explained, which the spiritual philosophy of the present day has not touched, and which many modern Spiritists, following out the rude and illogical example of their own materialistic opponents, find it easier to deny altogether than to elucidate.
• Madame Blavatsky’s Children: Modern Hindu Encounters With Darwinism by Meera NandaThis is an intellectual history of occult and esoteric currents in the English-speaking world from the early Romantic period to the early twentieth century. The Theosophical Society, founded in 1875 by Helena P. Blavatsky, holds a crucial position as the place where all these currents temporarily united, before again diverging. The book's ambiguous title points to the author's thesis that Theosophy owed as much to the skeptical Enlightenment of the eighteenth century as it did to the concept of spiritual enlightenment with which it is more readily associated.
The author respects his sources sufficiently to allow that their world, so different from that of academic reductionism, has a right to be exhibited on its own terms. At the same time he does not conceal the fact that he considers many of them deluded and deluding.
In the context of theosophical history, this book is neither on the side of the blind votaries of Madame Blavatsky, nor on that of her enemies. It may, therefore, be expected to mildly annoy both sides.
