Subtitled 'Magick and Power in the Age of Trump' this new book build a startling case proposing that magical thought may have helped put Donald Trump in the White House and spurred the growth of Nationalist politics in Europe. Meticulously researched and written with exceptional clarity, Lachman shows the similarities between many of the key tenets of Chaos Magick and Donald Trump's "chaotic" presidential style. A book for anyone who wants to make sense of these turbulent political times, Dark Star Rising is an enthralling account of the intersection between occult thought and contemporary events.
