About the Author

Robert Crookall, born in 1890, was educated at Westminster College, London, and Bristol University. He graduated with first-class honours in Chemistry, Botany and Psychology. After taking his Ph.D. he lectured at Aberdeen University. He then joined the staff of the Geological Survey of Great Britain, specialising in coal-forming plants. He helped in the search for new coal-bearing areas, which work culminated in the publication of a monograph on Fossil Plants of the Carboniferous Rocks of Great Britain (1955-70), the standard work on the subject. He was awarded a Doctorate in Science in 1930. Crookall resigned from his geological work in 1952 in order to devote the rest of his life to psychological studies.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most convincing books ever written on Spiritualism, and played a role in convincing me of the truth of spiritualistic communications. Crookall gathered together an incredible collection of books on psychic communications, literally thousands of books from around the world in many languages going back several centuries. His hypothesis was that should these books be based on fraud, there would be no correlation between the events portrayed in them. Astonishingly, what he demonstrates is that the experiences in a mediumistic seance ARE the same, the world over, regardless of culture, language, or time period. The only explanations are: (1) there has been a worldwide conspiracy by thousands of mediums the world over going back many centuries, if not millennia, to always make sure they create the same experience, or (2), the experiences reported in the many books quoted really took place. On the basis of the various information on how people reported feeling after death, Crookall breaks down the various experiences of death, depending on how it occurred. For example, soldiers killed in action, or young people killed suddenly and unexpectedly, generally report no break in consciousness. They see their bodies lying on the ground from a height, or they continue the charge with their fellow soldiers only to realize after a while that they have no body. On the other hand, people who die slowly on their death beds of old age or disease lose consciousness for 3 days, during which time they cannot be contacted by a medium. However, those who were blown into bits by bomb explosions lost consciousness for several weeks before 'coming round'.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Essential reading for anyone seriously investigating the afterlife. Although fifty years since publication, this classic work covers certain aspects of the subject with a comprehensiveness and depth missing in later works. About the only serious omission, and it's an important one, is its failure to discuss, or even mention, reincarnation.
