Ranging from the Marquis de Sade to the Japanese novelist, Yukio Mishima, who ritually disembowelled himself in 1970, this book on sexual "outsiders" traces the history of morbid sexuality, covering the rise of "hard porn" and the real-life necrophile Sergeant Bertrand. The Jack the Ripper murders marked the beginning of sex crime in the modern sense of the term. The sex lives of Percy Grainger, James Joyce, D.H.Lawrence, Bertrand Russell and Lawrence of Arabia provide new insights into the meaning of sexual perversion, while the tormented sex life of Ludwig Wittgenstein throws new light on the nature of his philosophy. Colin Wilson has also written "The Occult", "Mysteries" and "A Criminal History of Mankind".
