Product description

Product Description

In a blend of personal essay and a rendition of deeply researched metaphysical and Mexican history that reads like a novel, C.M. Mayo provides a rich introduction and the first English translation of the one the strangest, most underestimated, and utterly fascinating books ever published in Mexico: secret book by Francisco I. Madero, the leader of the 1910 Revolution and President of Mexico 1911-1913.


"In my fifteen years of researching the life of President Francisco I. Madero, I have never read a more complete book as the one just written by C.M. Mayo. It will simply surprise any reader. The research is impeccable and the narrative well-rounded."
—Manuel Guerra de Luna, author of Los Madero: La Saga Liberal

"C.M. Mayo offers another dazzling work in her own fluid, poetic and highly visual prose... By the time I finished I wished for a Don Francisco Madero to guide us today, a politican who is also a mystic and intellect.
—Sophy Burnham, author of A Book of Angels and The President's Angel

"Metaphysical Odyssey into the Mexican Revolution paints a complex picture of a curious crossroads in history, where the rise and fall of a regime coincided with a spiritual and social awakening with the potential to rewrite a country's future. Kudos to Mayo for introducing us to both the man and his message."
—San Francisco Book Review

"Mayo... provides not only an English translation of Madero's Spiritist Manual, but also a lively introduction... The author argues effectively that Madero's manual is essential to understanding his revolutionary zeal."
—Kirkus Reviews

"Mayo is a profoundly creative and insightful artist who is able to bring her own perspective into the frame while enhancing our understanding of her subjects. This is a masterful introduction to a topic that hasn’t been explored in this accessible way before, and may never be again. If you enjoy esotericism, history, politics, and the way that they sometimes intersect, I highly recommend you read C.M. Mayo’s Metaphysical Odyssey into the Mexican Revolution."
—Greg Kaminsky, host of Occult of Personality

"In this delightfully engaging book, C.M. Mayo brings to vivid light an aspect of Mexican history astonishingly neglected by most historians: the Spiritist beliefs and practices of Francisco Madero, instigator and first leader of the world-historical event that was the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Fruit of considerable research, this volume includes the first translation into English of Madero's Spiritist Manual, itself an invaluable contribution to the historical record."
—José Skinner, University of Texas-Pan American
