A lifetime of reading and research lies behind Dennis Wheatley's world famous Black Magic and Occult novels.
Now, in this absorbing, lavishly illustrated book he describes and sums up his findings and his conclusions.
Throughout history the elemental principles of Good and Evil, of Light and Darkness have interacted and struggled for domination. The evidence of invisible influences on mankind, hypnosis, faith-healing, telepathy, is plentiful. The studies of astrology, numerology, palmistry, alchemy and the Cabala are described. Here is the history of religion and magic among the Sumerians, the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Incas, down to the present day.
Here also are described the outward manifestations of those beliefs: human sacrifice, the mysteries of the Pyramids, the rituals of the Druids, witches' Sabbaths, the perverted frenzies of the Black Mass, the conjuring up of the spirits of the dead.
The Devil and All His Works, which includes 48 pages of color plates, 167 black and white illustrations and 6 maps, is probably the most complete, most graphic survey of the forces of Darkness ever published.
