New York, NY: MacMillan and Company, Ltd., 1974. First American edition. Hardcover. Octavo. xx + 306pp [ viii page b&w photo insert at center ]. Original brown cloth with silver title, etc. to spine, endnotes, bibliography and index. From the publisher: "The Occult and the Third Reich marks a giant step forward in Hitler scholarship. It is the first work to demonstrate that the Nazi cosmology was an intricate synthesis of the occult, nurtured by an ancient neo-Paganism... The ability of neo-Paganism to militantly reaffirm itself and contest with Christianity for men's minds and bodies tells us that the Nazi nightmare is only the last, but not the final act in a larger human tragedy still being played out... The authors are doubtless right in predicting that certain practitioners of the black arts will yet play a major role in determining the shape of a not-too-distant future."
