Manly P Hall was a phenomenon, famous in the inter-war years for his mysteriously-acquired and voluminous knowledge of a wide swathe of esoteric subjects, everything from Tarot to the Teachings of Kabbalah, from Pythagorean Mathematics to the esotericism of the plays of Shakespeare. In 'The Secret Destiny of America', Hall reveals how shadowy mystical orders lay behind the seemingly fortuitous birth of the United States. Bringing together such forgotten fragments of history as Akhenaton's monotheism, Christopher Columbus' true identity, the London prophecy delivered the year of Washington's birth, and the 'Mysterious Stranger' who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Manly P Hall gives a surprisingly plausible account of the American nation as an occult experiment in enlightened self-government and religious Liberty.

The Philosophical Research Society is a nonprofit organization founded in 1934 for the purpose of assisting thoughtful persons to live more graciously and constructively in a confused and troubled world. The Society is entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control. Dedicated to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems, the Society's program stresses the need for the integration of religion, philosophy, and the science of psychology into one system of instruction. The goal of this instruction is to enable the individual to develop a mature philosophy of life, to recognize his proper responsibilities and opportunities, and to understand and appreciate his place in the unfolding universal pattern.From the Back Cover:
Back in print at last, America's place in the essential progress of civilization is emphasized as the story unfolds of how our continent was set aside for the great experiment of enlightened self-government. Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, evidence is presented which indicates that the seeds of this plan for the founding of America were planted one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian era. Whether discussing the symbolism of the Great Seal of the U.S.S or the mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, here is a book sure to fascinate. It shows how the brilliant plan of the ancients, concealed from the common view, has survived to the present day and will continue to function until the great work is accomplished.
