Description

At last, here is the extraordinary true story of one of the most vilified men of all time. Incorporating 20 years of fresh research and previously unpublished personal documents, photographs and correspondence, Aleister Crowley: The Biography is the definitive account of the philosopher, artist, magus, prophet and spy who captivated and appalled millions both during his lifetime and beyond. Although it has been over 60 years since his death, Aleister Crowley is still shrouded in the mystique and infamy that mmade him such a controversial figure in his day. In this revelatory book, award-winning writer Tobias Churton sets out to unravel a century of scandal-mongering that persuaded the world that Crowley was a black magician, a traitor and a sexual wastrel, addicted to drugs and anti-social posturing. Churton`s illuminating biography includes a detailed account of Crowley`s adventures as a British spy during World War I; his astonishing family background, with secrets that have remained hidden for over a century; his philosophical, scientific and psychological brilliance, comparable to that of, say, Sigmund Freud; and his rich legacy of highly original ideas, which are finally receiving the consideration they deserve. Until now, Crowley`s life has not been written - it has been written over. But in this compelling and witty biography, readers will be brought closer than ever before to the man dubbed "The Beast" and in doing so will meet an extraordinary individual whose influence reverberates through modern history. This is a 474 page hardbound book
