"Colin Campbell's earlier works have shown him to be one of the most thorough and thoughtful Thelemic authors of our era. In Thelema, Campbell brings this same acumen and clarity of expression to the life and work of Aleister Crowley. The book covers a wide range of territory--historical, theoretical, and practical--and will be a useful resource for beginners and more advanced students alike."--David Shoemaker, author of Living Thelema
