Description

The present chapter examines some significant issues involved in the relations between Besant, the Theosophical Society and the Indian national movement. I shall try to shed light on the historical process which culminated in a white woman, a member of the colonial nation and president of an esoteric society, becoming one of India’s central national leaders.
