Editorial Reviews

<i>Gnosis Magazine</i>
"Soon Evola will be an immovable object in the field of serious esotericism in the English-speaking world, as he already is for readers of Italian, French, and German.

The Yoga of Power puts to shame those modern writers who have degraded Tantra to a subject for New Age sex manuals.

To read his descriptions of the higher spiritual states is like watching a champion mountain-climber on a vertical glacier."
