The Spiritist Manual by Bhima (Francisco I. Madero)

Today I finished the draft of my translation-- the first into English-- of the very unsual little book by Mexico's President and leader of its 1910 Revolution, Francisco I. Madero. This is the famous Manual Espírita, or Spiritist Manual, published in 1911 under the pseudonym "Bhima," after a character in The Bhagavadgita. The translation, with my introduction and notes, will be published this November. The cover art features an extraordinary piece by Kelley Vandiver. More news about this publication anon.

UPDATE October 15, 2011: The book now has its own website with extensive Q & A and resources for researchers.
