This is the first annual installment of “Studies Beyond Good and Evil”-- the Iron Youth Reader. These largely out-of-print works have been selected as a guide to assist the explorer of the taboo and left-hand paths. Neglected, infamous and infernal texts from philosophy, sociology, history and psychology are compiled, with blank pages for notes after each selection.
Starting this collection is Robert Eisler’s exploration of sadism, masochism and lycanthropy; Man Into Wolf.
Appearing next in the volume is a short anti-religious tract from Marquis deSade- A Dialogue Between a Priest and a Dying Man followed by Oswald Spengler’s Man and Technics. Savitri Devi’s Rocks of the Sun is an excerpt from her book Pilgrimage.
LeBon’s The Psychology of the Crowd, a landmark work giving insight into what happens when an individual finds himself one of many.
The final contribution to the Reader is Sir Francis Galton’s Essays In Eugenics.

With this first volume of the Iron Youth Reader, the folks at Underworld Amusements have gathered together a fine assortment of forbidden thought. While I already had many of these works in my collection it is convenient to have them all under one cover for easy reference. This book is the perfect purchase for anyone seeking to stretch their intellectual boundaries as it slays many a sacred cow. Within the pages you will find an essay by National Socialist pioneer Savitri Devi a.k.a Hitler's Priestess as well as Eisler's lycanthropic instruction manual entitled Man into Wolf. The latter offers an introduction by underground publisher Adam Parfrey of Feral House fame while the former is presented by Industrial music's bad boy Boyd Rice. A fine essay by right thinking Oswald Spengler is included as well as a work on the verboten science of Eugenics by Galton. There is even a bit by the Marquis de Sade tossed in for good measure. With its visually striking cover and pages for the reader... More > to make notations this book is a handsome addition to any bibliophile's shelf. Highly recommended for anyone just beginning their venture to the borderlands of acceptable ideas as well as the seasoned misanthrope.< Less
