The Savitri Devi Archives, Atlanta, GA, cop. 2006, published 2007 [1.Ed 1952]. Stated "Third Edition" but this work has a very uneven and unusual publishing history. 294 pp. Hardcover - black cloth, dust jacket. 8:o. 2235x160x27 mm. 660 g. Book and DJ Condition: New. /---/ This book is the second volume of The Centennial Edition of Savitri Devi's Works. Edited with Preface by R G Fowler. Includes index. Gold in the Furnace is one of the first "revisionist" books on World War II and its aftermath. In spite of the disaster, Devi did not view it as the end of National Socialism, but as a prelude to a new beginning. Thus Devi also devotes chapters to presenting the basic philosophy and the constructive political program of National Socialism. The book is considered as a valuable historical document of the National Socialists who never lost faith, despite suffering, persecution, and martyrdom - of the hopes of imminent National Socialist revival, perhaps in the aftermath of a Third World War, of the expectations of Soviet victory in such a war, and of the philosophy and experiences of a remarkable woman. The book has been almost impossible to find up to the 2000's. First published in a tiny edition in Calcutta in 1952, it was distributed privately by the authoress to her friends and comrades. A German translation appeared in 1982, a Spanish translation in 1995; in 2005, a second English edition was published in England, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Savitri Devi's birth, on 30 September 1905. This limited cloth edition corrects a number of errors in the second edition, including the omission of the frontispiece and two entire pages of text, and includes several new photographs. /---/ Savitri Devi was born Maximine Julia Portraz in Lyons, France, became a nazi in 1929, was a leading member of the Nazi underground during the 1960s and also one of the founding members of the World Union of National Socialists in 1962, an umbrella group for neo-Nazi organisations across the globe. She was also a prominent proponent of animal rights, deep ecology and Hinduism. In 1982 she died in England.
