When Allan Kardec set out for his historical journey of 1862, not even he could have foreseen the immense growth of Spiritism in France, inaugurated with the publication of The Spirits' Book in Paris only five years earlier. In a time when there was no radio, nor any other means of mass communication other than the printed word, that span was remarkable by any standards. Offering some rare glimpses into the Codifier’s way of thinking, this book covers some practical aspects of nascent Spiritism, while keenly narrating its quiet triumph against formidable odds and opposition.
