Publisher's Synopsis
Guido von List was an important figure among occultists and Pan-Germanic nationalists who borrowed from the Theosophy of Madame H. P. Blavatsky as well as ancient Aryan (Teutonic and Indian) legend to create a unique system of rune magic.

In this book, Guido von List explains the role of the runes in uncovering early Germanic belief and shows the importance of the runes and the unique meaning of each of the runic elements. Subsequently he shows how the runes were incorporated into such systems as heraldry, freemasonry, folk tradition and belief, and even into baked goods and pastries, as well as holidays. List notes that early Germanic (Aryan) society consisted of individuals who served as farmers with three principal classes (castes), that of the peasantry, the military, and the nobility/intellegentsia (Armanen).

This twisted work, along with Blavatsky's Secret Doctrine, provided the food for thought that Hitler needed...

"The world tree Yggdrasill (for the interpretation of the concept of Yggdrasill, see below) serves in the narrower sense as the Aryan tribal tree, beside which the tribal trees of foreign races are seen as foreign trees. The runic concept haun, kunna (maid, for example, in the name Adelgunde) demonstrates the feminine principle in the All in a purely sexual sense. The tribe, the race, is to be purely preserved; it may not be defiled by the roots of the foreign tree. If it were nevertheless to happen, however, such would be of little use to the foreign trees, because its foreign scion would grow to become its raging foe. Therefore: Your blood, your highest possession."
