Completed in 1958, and not published until 1990 due to Soviet censorship, Daniel Andreev reviewed and summarized the entirety of world progress, calling it a meta-philosophy of history. In the centuries ahead he saw calamities to envelop the world, to be culminated by the reign of Rose of the World. This is an international movement unifying the best of all religious and philosophic teachings, and a worldwide Federation of governments, harmonically regulating economic and social movements in the interests of the spiritual development of a person. Rose of the World will install a genuine golden age in our world and abolish poverty, tyranny, war, and violence. Daniel Andreev at the same time had visions of other worlds, both subterranean and celestial, and recorded them, with the struggle between good and evil, and the progress of humans for the goal of moral perfection. A New Translation of selections from the Russian into English by Daniel H. Shubin, for the American Reader.
