Varieties of Anomalous Experience, Examining the Scientific Evidence.

Washington D.C. American Psychological Association, 2000. First Edition. Hardcover. Small quarto. xii + 476pp. Original red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A collection of essays by various notables in the field of parapsychology addressing the questions: "What are the long-term effects of near-death experiences? Why do some people see sounds and taste smells? What happens during an out-of-body experience?" From the publisher: "These extraordinary and unusual phenomena have often been ignored or ridiculed by mainstream psychology. In this fascinating volume, leading scholars explore these areas, as well as experiences of hallucinations, lucid dreams, alien abductions, mysticism, anomalous healings, psi-events and past-lives, in an effort to explain the totality of human experience. In an accessible style, contributors review and discuss current research about unusual but important events, creating a mesmerizing account of activity at the boundaries of conventional psychology. The chapters examine current research and theories, methodological issues, related psychopathology, individual and cultural differences, after effects, and clinical implications of anomalous experiences." From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, although not marked as such.
