Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0522849105, Paperback)

The Spiritualist movement had its beginnings in the United States in the late 1840s and within a few years had spread to Australia. With its séances, mediums, trances, `magnetizers', table-tilting and other mysterious psychic phenomena, it attracted media frenzy and public furor, but also many deeply serious converts-often highly intelligent and talented people who rejected orthodox religion in favor of scientific rationalism, but were still vitally concerned with moral debates. One of them was the young Alfred Deakin, later to become Prime Minister. In this fascinating history, Gabay explores the origins of the Spiritualist movement and relates its rise and fall to the wider intellectual and religious currents in colonial Australian society.
