New Age "Asiatic" thought ... is establishing itself as the

Partial Cast & Chronology

The table below is a somewhat modified version of an Amazon Listmania list I recently put together. This cast of characters is only partial at present. However, it does give some sense of the rogues and miscreants with which Mystic Bourgeoisie (the book) will deal. Below the graphical portion of our program is a more complete timeline, with the dramatis personae linked to their corresponding Wikipedia pages. If you read through all the links in this post, you will be ABD-qualified for your Ph.D. in Bunkum and High Weirdness.
