Product Overview

Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke reveals the powerful impact of one of fascism's most creative minds, Savitri Devi, whose eccentric ideology, combining Aryan supremacism and anti-Semitism with Hinduism, social Darwinism, and a fundamentally biocentric view of life, has caused her to be lionized by the fringe radical right as a foremother of Nazi ideology and a heroine of neo-Nazi sects since the mid-1960s.

From the Publisher
Annotation A biography of Savitri Devi, and Anglo-Greek convert to Hinduism who became one of Adolf Hitler's chief devotees and propagandists. A thoroughgoing racist and anti-Semite, Devi (nee Maximiani Portas) settled in India because she admired its tradition of racial and caste segregation. After marrying the Brahmin philosopher A. K. Mukherji, she became more and more involved in propaganda work on behalf of Hitler and the Nazis, and eventually became a paid operative of the Axis Powers. After the war, she settled in Calcutta and devoted herself to Hindu spirituality and neo-Nazi propagandizing.
