Desmond's work in this volume touches on many aspects of spiritualism, mediumship, the persistence of the souls/ghosts/spirit after death: communication, astral prayers, love and marriage after death, the etheric plane, the shadow side pf psychic phenomena (even briefly discussing the black magic of Adolf Hitler and Hermann Rausching), and much more. He goes into quite a bit of detail and describes both techniques and his own personal experiences.

Shaw Desmond (1877-1960) was an Irish author and proponent of psychic experience. In 1934 he co-founded the International Institute for Psychical Research (which later merged with the British College of Psychic Science). He was a prolific author and wrote books on a variety of topics, from religion, spiritualism and the paranormal, to politics, travel, Irish history and nationalism, as well as novels of futuristic fiction.
