“Guenther Wachsmuth was one of Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s closest associates, a devoted student, and a leading advocate and defender after Dr. Steiner’s death in 1925. This book is testament to that statement and stands as noble companion to Dr. Steiner’s unfinished Autobiography.” — Bernard J. Garber (from the introduction)

Guenther Wachsmuth, a gifted student of Rudolf Steiner, composed this richly detailed narrative of the culminating quarter century of Steiner's life and teaching activities.

The author follows Steiner's numerous lecture tours and activities with the Anthroposophical Society, frequently offering social and personal context for events in his busy schedule.

This volume offers a valuable overview of the life mission of one of the most notable personalities of the twentieth century.

Includes 45 b/w photographs.

The Life and Work of Rudolf Steiner is a translation from German of Die Gegurt der Geisteswissenschaft (The birth of spiritual science).
