There are many discussion threads on books about Crowley in this Forum Xander. Perhaps you might also try scanning some of the threads to check. Many interesting comments, opinions and discussions.

Thanks, Marion

I'm a little confused. You want a book on Aleister Crowley (Alexander ?) but want to know what it is about. Huh ?!

If your looking for a biography of Crowley I suggest you take a look at one of these:

PURDURABO: The Life of Aleister Crowley ~ Richard Kaczynski
Do What Thou Wilt ~ Lawrence Sutin
A Magick Life ~ Martin Booth

All of them are pretty good.

I found a great and unbiased short account of Crowley in Alex Owen's "The Place of Enchantment: British Occultism and the Culture of the Modern" in a chapter called "Aleister Crowley in the Desert".
http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/642011.html

A fascinating analysis.

Unbiased ? Hardly. The article sets out to paint Crowley in a bad light right from the start and then finishes by saying that Crowley was psychologically wrecked after his 1909 experiences. The well researched published biographies beg to differ.

Clueless


Quote:
. Not least, Crowley's magical practice epitomized the ease with which the high aspirations of an Order such as the Golden Dawn could metamorphose into those so-called black arts against which occultists such as Madame Blavatsky railed.
The above quote from the article makes it abundantly clear that the author hasn't got a clue what Crowley's magical system is about.
