Product description


"This is a book of rich and complex texture dealing with important activities of Victorian and Edwardian society: spiritualism and physical research....a most stimulating study..." Journal of Modern History

Book Description

The Other World examines the public fascination with spiritualism and psychical research in Britain from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth century. It attempts to understand the reasons why artisans, intellectuals, and aristocrats alike embraced spiritualism as a surrogate religion or endorsed psychical research as the science of the future.
