12Title:  Aleister Crowley: the biography : spiritual revolutionary, romantic explorer, occult master and spy   
 Creator:  Churton, Tobias, 1960- 
 Publication:  Watkins Publishing, London, 2011. 
 Notes:  "Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was a visionary occultist, a member of the theosophical order of the Golden Dawn. Nicknamed 'The Beast', he was vehemently anti-Christian, and supported the use of drugs and sexual magic as a means to access deeper levels of consciousness. For 100 years his true achievements have been suppressed, his true character deformed and defaced in a campaign of vilification unparalleled in British history. Here is the world's first complete, thoroughly researched biography of Aleister Crowley, demolishing the myths, establishing the facts and telling with verve and style the astonishing and exciting story of his life, including many 'missing years', intrigues, discoveries and adventures - all revealed and explained for the first time. Crowley's grandson has provided exclusive access to crucial information about his family relationships, and there is a compelling account too of his work as a British spy during World Wars I and II."--Publisher's website. Includes bibliographical references and index.
