William Dudley Pelley: A Life in Right-Wing Extremism And the Occult (Google eBook)
"Scott Beekman offers not only a political but also an intellectual and literary biography of Pelly, greatly advancing our understanding of a figure often dismissed as a madman or charlatan. His belief system, composed of anti-Semitism, economic nostrums, racialism, neo-Theosophical channeling, and millenarian Christianity, anticipates the eclecticism of later cult personalities such as Shoko Asahara, leader of Aum Shinriyko, and the British conspiracy theorist David Icke." "By charting the course of Pelley's career, Beekman does an admirable job of placing Pelley within the history of both the anti-Semitic right and American occult movements. This exhaustively researched book is a welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship on American extremism and esoteric religions."--BOOK JACKET.
