    A History of Modern Yoga

    "'Carefully researched and closely-argued... Far more than a reconstruction of the history of Modern Yoga, the book is an important contribution to the history of Orientalism, the Brahmo Samaj, and Neo-Vedanta.' Professor David Gordon White, Department of Religious Studies University of California, Santa Barbara; 'A History of Modern Yoga is a timely work of astute, rigorous, critical scholarship. De Michelis has done an outstanding job.' Professor Joseph Alter, University of Pittsburgh"


    A History of Modern Yoga traces the roots of Modern Yoga back to the spread of western esoteric ideas in 18th century Bengal's intellectual circles. In due course Raja Yoga, published by Vivekananda in 1896, became the seminal text of Modern.

    That link requires a Google account.

    Any chance that paper/article is available elsewhere?
