Overview

The spiritual movement in the early part of the twentieth century had few proponents greater than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle--a medical doctor, soldier, intellect, and world-renowned author of the Sherlock Holmes series. In 1918, Doyle published The New Revelation--a firsthand account of his personal investigation into the world of Spiritualism, which embraced areas that we refer to today as ESP, New Age philosophy, metaphysics, and psychic experiences. While some may view this work as a historical footnote, the answers to Sir Arthur's basic questions about life and death are as relevant today as they were then.

An original Introduction to the book by George J. Lankevich provides an insightful look at Doyle's personal life, and his friendship with magician Harry Houdini is brilliantly captured in the book's original Afterword.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the world famous creator and author of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Having obtained a medical degree in 1881, Doyle practiced medicine for the next twenty years. Intertwined with his practice was his career as a writer--gaining him fame and fortune--and as an investigator of social injustice. In 1916, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle became intrigued with the psychic phenomena being explored in the spiritual movement of that time. For the remainder of his life, Doyle was a devout spiritualist, traveling throughout the world and lecturing to thousands of people on the topic.
