In this fascinating memoir, Elena Pisareva provides perhaps the only personal account of the Russian Theosophical Society from its beginning in the late 1800s to its dissolution in the mid-20th century. She vividly portrays Anna Kamensky’s struggle to establish and maintain the group amidst internal pressures and a hostile prerevolutionary government. Harrowing stories depict the members’ persecution and their flight from the Red Army. Pisareva’s invaluable perspective, faithful reporting, and flair for detail make this a must-read for Russian history buffs.
