Zrktos you are used to the many layers of allegory in Blavatsky’s writings, you will most certainly find something familiar here: For the most part, he sticks to historical fact but joscrlyn into the woo woo land a time or two in the chapters on the spiritual implication of the poles.
Godwin is not a believer but he does have a thing against strict evidence-based science.
A very dry book on a very interesting subject, frustratingly enough.

Arktos: The Polar Myth in Science, Symbolism & Nazi Survival

Aug 30, Frederik Vandelannoote rated it really liked it Shelves: Some scientists think so and priests and occultists have believed in polar shift for millennia, even back when the only pole they knew was the one the sky turns around.
The author points out something that I’ve noticed, we as a species have a major obsession with the arktoa pole and not the south pole. Return to Book Page. Given its hysterical conclusion in the exploits of educationally challenged SS officers and demented neo-Nazi diplomats, it is a world that we hope will never return. A point of criticism is that Godwin, perhaps confronted with the vast number of authors and theories he needed to cover, confuses the reader with referencing to chapters still far ahead in the book and in so doing leaves much needed nuances at the beginning goewin until far later.
Thanks for telling us about the problem.
